Head of History / Second of Humanities

One of the most improving Secondary Schools in England is seeking an enthusiastic and ambitious History Teacher to become Head of History and Second of Humanities. This is a permanent position, beginning after the Easter break.

The successful applicant will be responsible for developing the History curriculum alongside supporting the development of the Humanities Department. A positive and effective team leader is required to support and monitor staff in the department with regards the quality and effectiveness of the teaching provided. 

The role also involves evaluation and development of assessment procedures and the effective use of assessment data. This position requires excellent curriculum knowledge and a detailed understanding of the key areas of the History and Humanities curriculum.

This is a new post and so the school looking for an innovative and creative educator with a strong track record of curriculum development and raising attainment. The successful applicant should expect History to form the majority but not the whole of their timetable; the ability to teach other subjects may be an advantage.

The school for 11-16 year olds, located in the London Borough of Haringey, is making rapid progress and boasts excellent facilities following recent renovation work. A highly talented, motivated team will be able to assist the successful applicant in order to ease the transition into this new role.

If you are an ambitious, committed educator dedicated to improving the learning and life chances of students this could be the role for you. Applications are being considered for this position now and will continue to be considered until the end of March 2012.

To apply, send your resume and cover letter to apply AT right away.   Interviews will be conducted on Wednesday of this week.
