About the role

We are seeking to appoint an inspirational Film & TV Teacher with a specialism in the Production and Development phases of Film and TV for September 2024. We want you to inspire students to understand and love your subject, achieve outstanding results and become equipped to join the screen industries or progress to higher education when they leave us. We are keen to hear from people with backgrounds in industry, specifically within Production and/or Development for Film or TV as this role will predominantly be teaching this pathway.

Role Responsibilities will include:

  • Cultivate LSA’s Vision and embed its Values across every aspect of the school
  • Work closely with the Assistant Principal, Head of Department and other Film and TV Teachers to develop and teach the curriculum including schemes of work and assessment materials
  • Take on additional responsibilities within the department related to a curriculum area
  • Collaborate with LSA’s industry partners to provide learning experiences and opportunities that align with LSA’s Vision and Values
  • Regularly collect and use data and other contextual information to evidence student progress towards intended outcomes and engage with target setting, differentiation, monitoring and intervention
  • Take an honest and open approach to teaching practice and welcome opportunities for feedback and development
  • Play an active pastoral role as an Academy Tutor ensuring that our students emotional and social needs are met and that they feel part of our overall community
  • Engage with LSA Enrichment by providing opportunities for learning outside of the typical curriculum
  • Safeguard the wellbeing of all students

What we are looking for

LSA is a values-based organisation and therefore we are looking for people who can both reflect and identify with our core values. We have outlined below what we expect these to look like on a day to day basis.

Our vision requires us to have high standards. We want our students to be the leaders of the creative industries one day and thus our staff and provision need to reflect this. We are looking for people who can demonstrate excellent organisation + planning skills.

As a relatively new institution, a large part of our early success has been as a result of the opportunity we were given to innovate and test new practices, processes and systems. This is a huge part of our culture and something we want to retain as we continue to grow. While this is incredibly exciting, it is also extremely challenging at times. We are therefore looking for people who are:

  • comfortable with IT and technology - we use IT and specifically the Google Suite (Google Classroom, Gmail, Docs etc) extensively across the school. We are not looking for programmers but for people that will be comfortable in such an environment
  • experienced with using data and other contextual information to inform practice
  • able to innovate and look at conventional practices and problems from new angles to achieve ambitious outcomes
  • skilled at implementing and developing student culture of high expectations and achievement

At LSA we have a strong vision for the development of our students and staff. One of our strengths is the diversity of these groups and therefore we are looking for people who can:

  • be passionate about using LSA’s Vision to deliver outstanding outcomes
  • take an honest, respectful and empathetic approach to people and situations
  • be willing to have a strong, open and honest relationship with colleagues
  • demonstrate high levels of professionalism

Our success to date has been based on the fact that we have been able to work together as a team effectively. We want to retain our collaborative culture and environment as we grow and we are therefore looking for people who can demonstrate the following:

  • outstanding relationship-building skills
  • engaging and able to quickly build rapport with young people
  • the ability to establish good working relationships with staff, students, parents and other relevant stakeholders including external agencies
  • written and verbal communication skills
  • the ability to coach and support students individually as well as in groups

Our work is hard; we are constantly solving new problems and we fail regularly. As a result of this, we have to be able to commit to a process of continuous learning and development in order to keep moving forward and avoid making the same mistakes. We are therefore looking for people who:

  • take a proactive approach to their professional work and regularly go the extra mile
  • hold a belief in the capacity for achievement in spite of circumstance
  • have a strong aptitude for learning to continuously develop personally and professionally
  • take a solutions-focused approach to problems they encounter

Applying to LSA

We welcome applicants from all backgrounds, of any sexual or gender identity, neuro-diverse applicants, adults of any age or religious belief and encourage applications from people with a disability.

We are committed to diversifying the screen industries and increasing the diversity of our team is an important step towards this goal. We would especially welcome applicants who are from Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic groups, who are currently under-represented in our teaching staff.

Closing Date: 12:00pm Midday, Wednesday 8th May 2024

Start Date: 2nd September 2024
