Job Summary: The Hundred of Hoo Academy has a fantastic opportunity to appoint a talented and passionate Teacher of MFL

The Hundred of Hoo Academy has a fantastic opportunity to appoint a talented and passionate Teacher of MFL who truly wishes to inspire our pupils within the languages remit. Joining us in Easter 2024, our ideal candidate will be a specialist in teaching either Spanish, French or German and the ability to teach a second language is desirable. Please note that we require our successful teacher to have experience in delivering the UK MFL curriculum.

Our pedagogical approach is based on the latest research and ensures that teaching is efficient and effective whilst prioritising staff wellbeing. We ask our teachers to plan for a rigorous learning experience in which knowledge is broken down into manageable chunks so as to prevent cognitive overload and allow our students to remain focused on what is important. We believe that knowledge should and needs to be taught explicitly from the front by the subject expert in the room. Working in this way allows our students to focus on the recall and activation of that knowledge and bring it to bear on conceptually focused questions. Through direct instruction, retrieval practice, low stakes testing and question level analysis in all year groups, we believe that subject gaps will be tackled as they occur and that proactively working in this manner will eliminate the need for reactive intervention in exam year groups.
