Permanent | Full-time | Senior Independent School
This independent day and boarding School in north Essex has an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic, suitably qualified and passionate English Teacher to join this ‘Excellent in Every Aspect’ ISI rated School. The role will require the successful person to teach across Years 9 to 13, depending on prior experience and qualifications.
Moving into a brand new teaching space from September #####, our vibrant and creative English and Media Studies Department consists of a Head of Department and nine teachers. There is a collegiate culture, with collaborative planning and the sharing of best practice a key feature. Our pupils experience great success at GCSE, with a healthy number going on to study English at A Level or International Baccalaureate. We are dedicated to promoting a culture of high standards and hard work that will foster a lifelong appreciation of language and literature. It is essential that the successful person is committed to delivering exceptional learning to our students, has excellent subject knowledge and is willing to fully contribute to the co-curricular activities at the School, including boarding, tutoring, sports and activity programmes. 
This role would suit either an experienced teacher, an ECT, or someone suitably qualified looking to enter the profession. The school has an excellent support programme for beginning teachers and works with IStip to enable ECTs to be awarded full QTS: in our recent inspection of our ECT programme through IStip they confirmed that “Felsted School is running an excellent programme of induction…[and] is committed to developing new staff, particularly those starting out in the profession.” There is the potential for an unqualified teacher to be supported through a PGCE programme in due course.
