Newly Qualified Teachers
The Howard School, as a growing school at all Key Stages, are looking to recruit talented individuals who share our vision of providing a first-class education to all our students. You will show the drive, tenacity and ability to realise this ambition, and demonstrate a commitment to your own education and to yours and others’ professional development.
What we can offer you as an NQT:
- Minimum starting salary £25,344 for all NQTs
- Lump sum retention payment available upon successful completion of the NQT year for all candidates that sign up prior to 5th April 2019: amount is £1,000 to £5,000 depending on your agreed length of guaranteed service
- Quality professional development, including access to a dedicated professional mentor and subject specific mentor
- The option to commence employment in June 2019
- Reduced timetable to ensure effective mentoring and support
- Regular networking opportunities with other NQTs across the school
- Extensive career opportunities within the school and the Trust
- Assistance with relocation expenses up to £1,500 and costs arising from attending any interview.
We take the development of all our staff seriously, whatever period of time they have been teaching for. As an NQT, you will benefit from mentor support both in your department and from elsewhere in the school; a reduced timetable in the first year; your own classroom and a bespoke training programme that meets your needs as an individual. In further years, you will have the opportunity to access further study in the form of Masters programmes and/or National College training programmes, plus tailored career stage development in school.
As a school, our local and national reputation where our outcomes challenge the stereotypical view of underachievement in young men continues to grow, as does the perception that we hold to traditional values in standards of behaviour and uniform. We are an innovative and creative school, responding to the ever-changing needs of our students and the demands from higher education and employers. We have implemented a number of exciting changes in recent years to support our drive towards excellence.
As a school we are determined to ensure The Howard is the best school in Medway and beyond in which to teach, work and develop. Our success has been built on the commitment, professionalism and aspirations of our staff. It is a place where people want to work as there are opportunities for progression. I hope my resolve to take the school to the next level is evident and, while I recognise that this is by no means easy, that this is the very least we should be doing for our community. The successful candidate will be someone who is genuinely up for the challenge. In return, we can promise an investment in you and your future, offering a competitive remuneration package, providing first class professional development and career opportunities.
The Howard School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We will ensure that all our recruitment and selection practices reflect this commitment. References will be taken up for those candidates short-listed for interview. The successful candidate will be subject to Disclosure and Barring Service checks along with other relevant employment checks.
We reserve the right to alter our interview dates and close this vacancy early should we receive an overwhelming response. Applicants should apply via our online application process via TES online firstname.lastname@example.org.
