Due to steady growth in student numbers in German we’re looking to a recruit talented, enthusiastic member of the Modern Languages team to contribute to our ongoing success.
At Queen Mary’s College we understand the importance of recruiting skilled and well-qualified staff to maintain excellence in all that we do. We are committed to high-quality, innovative education and student support services and pride ourselves on our welcoming, supportive and friendly environment. We never stand still and our best keeps getting better thanks to the dedication, enthusiasm and commitment of our team.
Situated in 23 acres of leafy grounds, Queen Mary’s College is an inclusive, vibrant and high achieving sixth form college with a fantastic reputation both locally and nationally. Value added data places us in the top 10% of all A- level providers.
The Modern Languages Department consists of a modern suite of classrooms with smartboard projection facilities and a workroom with computers available for staff use. More than 100 students are currently Modern Languages, at A 'level and GCSE. We have an excellent record of student achievement and staff work closely together to develop teaching materials and course planning. The Department also offers a range of enrichment opportunities for students, including film groups, conversation classes and preparation for Oxbridge applicants. Yearly visits to Germany are arranged, alternating between Berlin and Munich to ensure all students have an opportunity to visit the country. We also participate regularly in events arranged by the Goethe Institut and the UK-German connection.
Whoever joins us as a Teacher of German will teach a timetable including first and second year A 'level students and a German for Holidays enrichment. In addition to your duties as a teacher, we’ll rely on you to act as a Personal Tutor – a vital role that involves motivating, monitoring, supporting and guiding students’ academic progress through the College via regular one-to-one consultations.
Our priorities are to maintain and extend our examination success and to maintain high levels of student satisfaction and achievement. We seek to ensure that we provide students with a high-quality experience of learning that is innovative, interesting and challenging and helps them acquire the skills and knowledge essential for their progression. This is an exciting opportunity for a teacher to join our outstanding team and be part of our friendly and supportive environment.
