Olchfa is looking for an inspiring and enthusiastic Teacher of Welsh to join our dedicated team of professionals at an outstanding school. At Olchfa, we actively encourage collaborative working and an interest in innovative teaching practices. Our focus on pedagogy and ethos enables our pupils to engage in the best learning experiences and achieve their full potential.
The Languages, Literacy and Communication Learning Area at
Olchfa is a thriving, dynamic team of 23 staff, four of whom are Welsh subject specialists. As part of the Pioneer School programme, we have developed the exciting iLearn curriculum in response to the Donaldson Report. While Key Stage 3 pupils are taught iCommunicate Cymraeg by subject specialists, we exploit the natural links and skills across the Learning Area, working closely with colleagues in iCommunicate English and iCommunicate Spanish to enhance the learning experiences of our pupils.
Furthermore, we enter nearly all Key Stage 4 pupils at GCSE Welsh (Second
Language) as well as offering this subject at A Level. Evaluation and reflection underpin our work and we consistently strive to refine and develop all of the courses we offer to provide the best possible learning experiences for our students. Within our Learning Area team, there is a wealth of experience, good practice and commitment. We firmly believe in collaboration and sharing of ideas to develop professional expertise and we seek an equally enthusiastic, innovative and dedicated colleague to help us build on our success. The right candidate will be expected to contribute to the development of the curriculum and, if appropriate, teach across all key stages.
Our aim at Olchfa is to provide a secure and caring learning environment in
which all young people can achieve their full potential and where they can explore opportunities for involvement in both the school and its wider community. For our staff, we offer a positive working environment, personal and professional development, a strong team ethos, and recognition for a job well done.
