Teacher of CDT, Broxburn Academy, 35 hours per week, closing date 29th September 2019
Broxburn Academy is seeking to appoint a highly motivated and dynamic Teacher.
The successful candidate will support the vision for the school and implement strategies to achieve this vision. This is a key post which comes at an exciting and challenging time for education in the school.
Broxburn Academy is a comprehensive non-denominational school and serves a cluster of four primary schools serving the communities of Broxburn, Uphall, Kirkhill, Pumpherston and Dechmont.
The school roll is currently 870 and this is steadily rising due to housing developments within the area and an ever increasing confidence from the community about the standard of education we provide and this can also be seen in the growing number of placing requests from outside the catchment area.
The successful candidate will have the necessary experience and leadership skills to assist in taking forward the principles of Curriculum for Excellence in order to support the improvement agenda of the faculty, school and authority.
