Job Description

Project People are supporting a secondary school based on the North London / Hertfordshire borders. They are seeking to appoint an experienced Science Teacher from April 2020 on a permanent basis.

In line with the whole school, the department has dedicated pedagogy and subject knowledge development time, which provides an invaluable opportunity for the department to come together and discuss research relating to our subject area, share learning and teaching ideas and genuinely work collaboratively to develop our practice as professionals.

The department is keen to continue to build on excellent results in 2019 and their popularity at A-Level. The school is open to applications for Science teachers with specialisms in any of the three disciplines.
