A Hastings Opportunities Area initiative

Closing date:         Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis

Interviews:             TBC

Base school:           Ark Alexandra Academy

Start Date:             ASAP

Salary:                      £40,000-£50,000 depending on experience

 

This is a one year contract in the first instance and should the post be successful, it will then be extended. It is an ideal opportunity for a secondment. Travel across parts of the local area will be required.  There will be occasions when you will be required to travel to London.

 

Ark is an international charity, transforming lives through education. We exist to make sure that every child, regardless of background, has access to a great education and real choices in life.  

We know that great schools need great teachers, which is why we offer you the very best training and support at every stage of your career - from starting out as an NQT to running your own school. 

Our highly-successful network of 35 schools educates over 22,000 students across Birmingham, Hastings, London and Portsmouth. They are achieving some of the best results in the country despite being largely in areas of historic academic underachievement.

But we want every child to succeed, whether they go to an Ark school or not, so we are constantly developing new teaching techniques and programmes, discovering what works in our schools before rolling them out more widely. Innovative programmes that started life at Ark include English Mastery, English Mastery, and Ambition School Leadership.

We are currently looking to recruit an outstanding teacher, ideally with leadership experience, to work as Regional Lead Teacher for English in Ark Alexandra Academy and in local schools in and around Hastings. The successful candidate will demonstrate the competencies needed for the post.

 

The support you offer our leaders and teachers will be vital in ensuring that all schools achieve the same successes.  You will be led by the Executive Principal and will work closely with the Vice Principals responsible for teaching and learning. You will use your passion, subject knowledge and expertise in English to drive forward the quality of teaching and learning. Based in Ark Alexandra Academy, you will model great practice through a partial teaching timetable but you will also travel around local schools to coach and lead others. This in an exciting role that requires flexibility, a team spirit, and a willingness to learn and it will suit individuals who want to take a step-up and work at a senior leadership level in English across schools.

 

Ark training is of the highest quality and you will be provided with relevant training to deliver this role. Initial training will be provided in the summer term 2019.

 

Our expectations are high.  We are aiming to ensure that all our schools show strong progress in English so that students can progress onto further study, university or employment of their choice.

 

 

The successful candidate will:

·         be an outstanding teacher with a proven track record of securing excellent outcomes

·         have an up-to-date knowledge of the subject curricula and assessment requirements

·         have had experience of leading a subject area or holding a leadership responsibility within a school where a clear impact has been made through the proactive work they have done

·         be proficient in teaching English preferably to GCE

·         have proven experience of identifying and implementing effective strategies for improving attainment in English in coastal schools at KS3, 4 and preferably 5

·         have a highly effective style that is both consultative and influential

·         be able to demonstrate resilience, motivation and commitment to driving up standards of achievement

·         be able to work across a group of schools and show significant impact in developing capacity and improving outcomes for young people (involving being based in our Ark Alexandra Academy, Hastings)

·         be aligned with Ark’s ethos of high aspirations and high expectations which lead to strong outcomes for our students.
