Teacher of Science

Temporary to cover maternity leave from October 2020, 1.0FTE, MPS

Plymouth CAST Multi-Academy Trust is seeking a committed and aspirational teacher to join their Science team within their secondary schools (Notre Dame Plymouth and St. Boniface’s Catholic College) to cover the maternity leave of a colleague. Successful candidates will embrace our ethos, contribute to school improvement plans and raising standards in Science, working hard to help students make good progress and spread a passion for Science and promote STEM career pathways.

Applications from experienced and newly qualified teachers will be equally valued.

The successful candidate will be a general scientist, however there may be opportunity to deliver specialist teaching to exam groups.  You will be able to inspire, enthuse, engage, motivate and challenge students to raise achievement at all levels within a culture of high expectations of both staff and students.

We expect successful applicants to show within their application, and at interview, their passion for working with young people and be able to explain how they will embrace and support the Trust’s ethos.

Both secondary schools are Roman Catholic, comprehensive, single-sex schools (Notre Dame – girls, St Boniface’s – boys) with a mixed sixth form at Notre Dame. We value our Catholic ethos, but you don’t need to be a Catholic to apply to work for either school. We ask that our staff are comfortable in this environment and support our ethos and Christian attitudes.
