Develop a transformational mastery-based Humanities curriculum

Michaela Community School is a new free school, which opened in September 2014 with 120 Year 7 pupils. Now with four year groups and 480 pupils, we are a growing, flourishing school in the heart of North West London. We cater for pupils aged 11-18 of all backgrounds and believe that all children, regardless of background or starting point, can achieve the very best if they are given the right support. We believe that an elite education based upon traditional values should be within the reach of every child. Our school motto is ‘knowledge is power’. Pupils joining us promise to ‘work hard, be kind’. We have a strong Teach First presence in our staff, and are all united by the Teach First mission to give every child the best possible start in life.

This summer, we would like to offer a dynamic, committed teacher the opportunity to assist in the design of our innovative History and Religion curriculums. Our curriculum recognises the central role of knowledge and memory for learning, and draws on insights from cognitive science and educational research. In this summer project, you will help plan, create and evaluate lessons and resources for our Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 curriculums. You will be working with our Head of Humanities to help make this curriculum a reality.

The ideal candidate for this role will:

-have experience of teaching either Religion, Philosphy or History in schools in challenging circumstances

-believe that all pupils, regardless of prior attainment or socioeconomic background, can achieve excellence

-be aware of the implications of the research around explicit instruction and memory on classroom practice

-be eager to find out more about Direct Instruction and Core Knowledge

-be organised, detail-orientated and a clear communicator
