Subject Leader English as an Additional Language (EAL)

We are seeking to appoint an outstanding Subject Leader of English as an Additional Language (EAL).

The Subject Leader will be responsible for the development of the subject area and its teaching throughout the College.  The ability to lead, inspire, innovate and offer fresh approaches to learning is essential.  The successful applicant will be given genuine scope to develop the College’s EAL curriculum and freedom to establish the vision for this important subject area.

There are over 40 nationalities represented within our pupil body, and for the majority of pupils English is a second or even a third language.  Whilst many are now fluent, the support that is provided is of paramount importance to the overall success of the school.

Teaching usually takes place in small groups, where necessary lessons may be given on an individual, one-to-one basis.  Pupils are given support which helps them to access the school curriculum, as well as practising the key language elements of grammar, vocabulary, reading, writing, speaking and listening.

In Year 9 pupils may have EAL lessons instead of Modern Foreign Languages lessons.  In Years 10 and 11 EAL can be taken instead of mainstream English lessons or as an option.  Pupils work towards the Edexcel IGCSE English as a Second Language (E2L). Preparation for the IELTS Academic examination is offered to pupils studying in Years 12 and 13.

The EAL Department maintains a strong pastoral emphasis, working closely with other staff to ensure the wellbeing of international pupils and encouraging them to participate fully in the wide range of extra-curricular activities.  We are planning the launch of a summer school in 2018 and we envisage that the Subject Leader will be an integral part of this new offering.

The Subject Leader EAL will play an important role in the delivering of a comprehensive EAL programme that advances the academic and cultural education of every EAL pupil.  The post would be an excellent opportunity for either an experienced leader looking for a fresh challenge or a teacher seeking a first post of responsibility.

The offer of the position would be made subject to receipt of references, proof of relevant qualifications, prohibition from teaching check, Enhanced Disclosure and Barring check, overseas check if appropriate and pre-placement medical assessment that are all satisfactory to Tettenhall College.  Proof of entitlement to work within the United Kingdom will be required.
