Required to start September 2019 or sooner.

We are looking for a committed and talented lead practitioner available to start in September 2019 or sooner.  In this role you will have a leading role in shaping the provision of T&L within the department and across the Academy so that it fits into our values stated above. If you are ambitious, have a history of excellent outcomes, have a deep interest in the latest educational research and wish to work with the best children in the South West please apply for this exciting role which acts as a natural pathway to Senior Leadership.

At Marine Academy, we deliver a knowledge-rich curriculum that is cohesive, cumulative and highly sequenced. The curriculum is academic, rigorous and challenging. It has been designed with long-term memory in mind; students' knowledge, skills and understanding are cemented by frequent and systematic re visiting.

As a teacher at Marine Academy your time will be highly valued. You will not be expected to mark homework- this is already planned and set for you.  You will not be expected to attend pointless meetings- our meetings have specific foci, and only happen on a Monday. You will not be routinely expected to handwrite feedback to students. Your lesson observations will not be graded but feedback will help you improve.  Your lessons will not be disrupted by poor behaviour, our RTL system will remove students who cannot follow our rules so that you can get on with teaching.

You will receive fortnightly -1-2-1 coaching in order to make continual improvements within your teaching. This improvement will be aligned to the very latest in educational research and thinking. You will follow Schemes of Learning that are already planned and resourced for you. You will be supported by like-minded colleagues in an atmosphere of respect and creativity.

If you value knowledge, consistency of approach, the very highest academic and behavioural expectations of students and wish to beat the cutting edge of educational development then please apply for the post of Lead Practitioner. Subject specialism essential.

The academy is an all-through school, incorporating a nursery, primary school, secondary school and sixth form.  Our lead sponsor is the University of Plymouth and as of this academic year the Academy is excited to be working in partnership with the Ted Wragg Multi-Academy Trust.

Marine Academy Plymouth are committed to safeguarding children in its care; any successful appointment is subject to a satisfactory DBS check.
