About the role

Main Duties and Responsibilities:

General

• The major task of teachers is to enable all students to achieve their full potential (social, physical, emotional and intellectual) by developing in them relevant skills, competencies, attitudes, concepts and knowledge. Teachers should use their professional judgements and skills to help students to acquire the confidence to tackle all aspects of learning throughout their lives. They should seek to enhance self-esteem and self-fulfilment of students through a supportive, encouraging, yet challenging approach to learning.• Teachers will achieve these aims by working at or towards the professional standards at the appropriate level. All teachers will be expected to prepare, teach, mark work and keep appropriate records of assessment of designated groups within team or departmental areas in accordance with school and department policies. A wide variety of teaching styles suited to the needs of individuals and small groups as well as whole classes should be adopted.• All teachers will be expected to work collaboratively with other staff as members of teams, departments and/or other cross-curricular groups. They will contribute their own particular talents and skills to such groups to aid the production of new initiatives, policies, resources, schemes of work etc.• In collaboration with students and support staff, all teachers are responsible for caring for the school environment, and teachers take responsibility for their own rooms.• Teachers should have a concern for the academic and general welfare of students in their care during specific lessons, but teachers who are tutors (and most are) are expected to take a broader responsibility for the development and progression of a group of students.
