History Teacher with or without TLR
Salary: Inner London (competitive salary based on experience and skills)
Start date: September 2020
Contract: Full time, permanent, subject to an enhanced DBS check
We are looking for an excellent history teacher who combines the rigour of A level and GCSE success with the creativity of developing rich and exciting collaborative projects. There is great demand for these subjects at A-level as part of Six21 so we are particularly keen on people who have a thirst for translating a love of history into exceptional outcomes. It is essential that you have a passion for developing the best pedagogy for this age range.
School 21 is a very special and different kind of place to work in. We empower staff to find their voice and their creativity. We offer collaboration and learning across ages and subjects. All staff have a tailored programme of professional development which results in great outcomes for the students. We offer multiple routes to progression through subjects and pedagogies. We believe strongly in developing the full potential of all staff.
Within this context your role will be to develop historical thinking. You will be trained in a range of pedagogies. These include Harkness discussions where 15 students debate and analyse historical texts around an oval table. You will become immersed in the language and techniques of well-being to ensure our children are ready to learn and thrive.
English Language is central to everything we do at School 21 and the successful candidate will also play an important part in supporting all students in their drive to become avid readers, fluent writers and confident speakers. Our oracy curriculum and teacher toolkit and our collaboration with Cambridge University has resulted in a school filled with purposeful talk and thinking. You will have the chance to shape this exciting area of the school’s culture.
Early application is encouraged as we are hoping to interview and appoint someone as soon as possible. School 21 reserves the right to close applications early and make an appointment at any stage.
School 21 is an equal opportunities employer and is committed to safeguarding children.
