A good secondary school in Kent are working with Career Teachers to recruit a Computer Science and ICT teacher to start in September on a permanent basis. The school are looking for a passionate and skilled teacher with experience of delivering both Computer Science and ICT at KS3 and KS4. The ability to teach KS5 is highly desirable, but by no means essential. This presents a wonderful opportunity for either an NQT seeking their first role, or a more experienced teacher looking for a new challenge. There is the potential of leadership responsibilities within the department for the right candidate.

This large, mixed secondary school is part of a trust of like-minded schools serving the Medway area of Kent, with exceptional transport links to both London and the continent The school's most recent Ofsted rating was good and their aim is to move to outstanding by the next inspection. The leadership team has set clearly defined priorities to enable this to happen and their drive and focus ensures that pupil progress at the school is good. The behaviour of pupils at the school is also good - teachers have high expectations for pupil conduct and well-developed systems and policies are in place. These focus on promoting positive behaviour and a culture of mutual respect. Staff and pupils at the school are very welcoming and there is an eagerness to share good practice between colleagues in the department. CPD is personalised and focused, with access to regular developmental sessions. You will also be provided with additional support through a robust and comprehensive induction period led by the Head of Department.

You will:

  • Hold Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), after completing a PGCE, Graduate Teaching Program (GTP), Bachelor of Education (B.Ed), QTLS or equivalent overseas teaching qualification
  • Ideally have prior experience of teaching across KS3 and KS4 (NQTs should refer to their placement experience when applying)
  • Be able to enthuse and challenge pupils through stimulating and interactive lessons
  • Have a dedicated and creative approach when planning lessons and delivering learning activities
  • Differentiate effectively, ensuring that the needs of all learners are met, including those pupils on the EAL and SEN registers
  • Promote positive behaviour and use a range of behaviour management strategies effectively
  • Have a positive work ethic, demonstrating a commitment to your own development and a willingness to share good practice
  • Create a fun, safe and inspiring learning environment, set high expectations of achievement and support pupils to reach their full potential
