Lead Teacher for Learning Technology and Multiliteracies (TLR3)

Responsibilities

We are seeking to appoint an experienced and dynamic primary teacher to join our staff team and collaboratively lead the development of the technology and multiliteracies programmes for our students. The position will be a full-time two years contract starting August 2019, renewable by mutual consent.

The successful candidate will join a highly effective team which currently comprises specialist teaching colleagues responsible for Learning Technology, Information Literacy and Media Literacy. We are looking to strengthen the team with the addition of a dynamic educator in order to tackle up-coming strategic challenges. These include;

• A review of the roles of the team members to support the development of Ideal Libraries as outlined in the Enhanced PYP.
• The development of an enhanced school based Learning Support Platform to enable reporting of student performance, curriculum design and school evaluation.
• To continue the development of transformational use of technology to deepen learning across the curriculum.
• The enhancement of the rigorous Digital Citizenship programme we have in place.

The post will be offered in a non-class based capacity, with a Teaching and Learning Responsibility allowance available, depending upon the experience of the successful candidate.

TLR 2 remains a possibility, but that will require school council approval as it will be a step away from our current staffing structure.
