Part Time Teacher of French and Spanish

0.8 full time equivalent.  Fixed Term contract for 12 months

Starting 1st September 2020

Kimberley School is an exciting place to work.   Our aim is for every child to achieve or surpass their academic and social potential and we achieve this through providing an outstanding quality of education, underpinned by a strong programme of care, guidance, support and enrichment.

Modern Foreign Languages are at the centre of our curriculum provision.  Students study two languages (from French, German and Spanish) in Key Stage 3 and all students are able to study these languages at GCSE and A-Level.  There is a strong tradition of enrichment opportunities within the Languages curriculum, including a long established exchange programme with our partner school in Germany.

This is an opportunity to join our outstanding, high performing, Modern Foreign Languages Team.   We are looking for someone who can teach French at KS3 and KS4; the ability to teach Spanish at KS3 would also be an advantage. The post is 0.8 full time equivalent on a fixed term contract for 12 months.  There may be the opportunity for this to move to a permanent contract in the future with the agreement of the school and the successful candidate.  However, we would also encourage you to apply if:

  • You are a newly or recently qualified teacher looking for a full-time post
  • You are interested in a part time contract but want something less than 0.8 full-time equivalent
  • You are available for a maternity cover from September 2020


If you have a passion for teaching Modern Foreign Languages, then we want to hear from you.  You will be part of the Modern Foreign Languages Faculty and you will be working with a team of professionals who have an excellent track record of success and focus relentlessly on ensuring that students enjoy learning and make outstanding progress. As part of East Midlands Education Trust there will also be the opportunity for you to learn from the very best and prepare you for the next stage of your career.

All staff are recruited under our safer recruitment processes, in line with DfE requirements, which includes an enhanced DBS check. We have a suite of safeguarding procedures, policies and guidance for all of our staff and volunteers to ensure we actively promote children and young people's welfare and safety.

We are also committed to equality of opportunity in employment and it is our policy to promote equal opportunities in employment, regardless of race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, creed, disability, sex, age, marital status or sexual orientation. This applies to recruitment and selection practices, training, promotion and in the application of national and local agreements in respect of pay and conditions of service.

This application pack includes a job summary, job description and person specification. Applications must be made on an EMET application form which you can download from the East Midlands Education Trust website.  Please note that CVs will not be accepted.  When you complete the application form please set out in your answer to question 6:

  • how your experience and qualifications have prepared you for this position; and
  • the steps you will take to ensure that the students you teach enjoy learning and make good progress;
  • the nature of the contract you are looking for (i.e. part time or maternity)

Whilst current national restrictions remain in place all interviews will be conducted online.
