Do you love teaching science and like to collaborate with passionate colleagues in a team committed to being at the forefront of pedagogical practice? If so, The JCB Academy has an exciting opportunity for you to join our warm and welcoming community.

We are seeking to appoint a committed and inspiring Science Team Leader to join our supportive, enthusiastic and collaborative team either after the Easter break (25 April 2022) or at the start of the 2022/23 academic year (24 August 2022).

This role requires high levels of personal and professional commitment and the ability to effectively manage a team is essential. The successful candidate will be highly adaptable and flexible and will need a strong work ethic.

You will be responsible for the development of the pedagogical approach to learning and will be accountable for learner outcomes across all three science specialisms.  You will also lead on the quality of teaching and learning for learners in your classes. This will involve setting and articulating high expectations for learners and planning and teaching effectively using appropriate resourcing to challenge and engage all learners.

The JCB Academy is innovative, unique and unlike any other school, developing engineering and business leaders from Y9 to Sixth Form and providing Intermediate (level 2) and Advanced (level 3) apprenticeship programmes. From 2022/23, we will be delivering an Engineering T-level which will provide learners with an additional qualification choice after their GCSEs.  With cutting-edge facilities, world-leading partners and genuine industrial challenges that bring theory to life, our learners are equipped with aptitudes and skills that prestigious apprenticeship providers, universities and global companies look for in future business leaders and engineers.

The JCB Academy provides learners with a unique curriculum developed by the academy and its core partners. Working with the likes of Bosch Rexroth, Harper Adams University, JCB, Rolls‑Royce and Toyota Motor Manufacturing, we ensure that the curriculum is embedded in real industrial practice and includes genuine industrial challenges. Our aim is to provide a world class experience to learners and staff.

This role offers first class career development opportunities, excellent CPD, wonderful learners, an innovative education vision, great links to industry and higher education and an opportunity to work in a unique environment with fantastic facilities.

The JCB Academy’s Relocation Assistance Scheme will be offered in relation to this appointment.
