An opportunity exists to join our English faculty. The faculty is very collegial, collaborative, supportive, and forward thinking in its approach. Its members are not afraid to take steps into the unknown if they believe it is in the best interests of the students. Many of this faculty co-teach classes and while this is not a must for all classes it does enhance the collaborative environment that is expected as a member of this team. 

The ideal candidate will be open to engaging in learning about how to be more culturally responsive and willing to make changes to their practice to reflect this. Ideally, they will have some experience in developing student literacy skills, particularly in utilising data to inform their practice around those at the lower ends of the curriculum. 

Staff wellbeing and a student-centred approach are the two driving forces of this faculty and the ideal candidate will place strong emphasis on this in their practice. The successful applicant will enjoy having fun at work both in the classroom and in the faculty spaces. 

Due to the strong team approach in the English Faculty and the desire to get the best person to fit the team, there is some flexibility in the timetable to meet the expertise of the successful candidate. We welcome applications from candidates who are open to learning and working within the kind of environment that we have described.

This position commences at the start of the 2022 school year.
