The Oriel MFL Faculty
INNOVATIVE, MOTIVATED AND SUCCESSFUL
The Oriel MFL team consists of 7 full time specialised members of staff, all of whom have experience of living and working abroad and many of whom are postholders within the department and across the school. We are also lucky enough to have 3 Foreign Language Assistants supporting our KS4 and KS5 classes every year. We teach French, German and Spanish from Y7 up to A-Level and also support students for whom English is an additional language (EAL). EAL students are encouraged to sit qualifications for their native language with the support of West Sussex County Council.
We are lucky to have 6 purpose built full size Languages classrooms all with interactive whiteboard, projector and teacher’s PC, along with a dedicated Languages Resources Room, equipped with PCs and laptops, which offers a communal workspace for Languages teachers and allows for small group work. Additionally, smaller seminar rooms are available for Sixth Form lessons.
The Languages teachers at Oriel aim to provide every student in our care with the opportunity to practise the language across all four skills: Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing with a special emphasis on communication, target language and culture.
Our curriculum is broad and diverse. We deliver languages in an engaging, varied and practical way to enthuse Oriel students in their use and to allow them to enjoy demonstrating their achievement in a foreign language. Our team is committed to ensuring that every student is successful in their Languages, allowing them to access a greater world of opportunities.
We are a successful, ambitious, creative and forward thinking department looking for teachers of a high calibre to stretch and inspire our most able students and continue to help drive up standards.
We are looking to appoint someone:
• To teach French and German/Spanish across the age and ability range in accordance with the requirements of a professionally qualified teacher.
• To support the teaching and learning in the department through resource and curriculum development.
• To support the development and improvement of teaching and learning in the department by promoting outstanding practice and facilitating impactful CPD and mentoring of ITT. and ECT (Early Career Teachers). ?
• Support the Head of Department to motivate the team and lead by example.
We would welcome applications from teachers who would like to grow and develop an innovative and forward thinking department. Oriel is committed to career-long teacher development and uses effective CPD to achieve this.
