Springwell Leeds Academy requires an exceptional, versatile teacher of Music who is passionate about providing the best possible education and care for vulnerable students. This post may involve teaching a small number of children up to GCSE level as well as supporting none specialist teachers in delivering art to all students as required. However, this post is more about teaching children to play instruments, sing, create and enjoy music. Significant training, time and support is given to ensure that staff are confident in delivering high quality learning. All of our sites operate in line with best practise in an SEMH provision, which is a nurturing type curriculum model with significant investment in therapeutic and wrap around support for our students.
The successful candidate will have the opportunity to join our Academy as we complete our building programme of three bespoke buildings around the city. We have already recruited two other creative passionate music teachers for two other sites and you will work with colleagues as part of that performing arts team. You won’t be starting from the complete beginning as you will have the template in place from the experiences of the first new builds. This post provides the opportunity to create a bespoke, creative programme of study for students who require something different from a mainstream offering. Whilst you would be the only music teacher on site you would work closely as part of a team with the other teachers of Art across our other newly built sites.
This position would suit a teacher with a proven track record of exceptional practice, who is able to work with vulnerable pupils with social, emotional and mental health difficulties (SEMH). It would suit an individual who is passionate about making a real difference to student’s life chances and supporting them in achieving their potential in essential life skills, which is a high priority for Springwell Leeds.
The ability to be creative and use imaginative flair to engage is essential, along with having resilience, drive and high expectations to inspire students to achieve. As we are a growing Academy it may also provide an opportunity of further leadership opportunities in the future
The deadline for electronic submissions is Noon Thursday 21st March 2018.
Completed applications should be e-mailed to Sarah Reeder, PA to Executive Principal at firstname.lastname@example.org
We anticipate that interviews will take place week commencing Wednesday 28th March 2018
