Advert

Modern Foreign Languages are an important part of the school’s curriculum at the Weald of Kent and in 1999 we were awarded Specialist School status for Languages. Language learning at the Weald of Kent is exciting and engaging.

All of our students study a Modern Foreign Language in years 7, 8 and 9 with the majority taken it to GCSE level. The Modern Foreign Languages Department currently has 11 teaching members of staff. The Department has a Head of Department for Modern Foreign Languages and a Deputy Head of Department for Modern Foreign Languages. There are two Language Assistants that support this team based at Tonbridge working mainly with Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5 students.

As a Language Teaching Assistant, you will be working in the Modern Foreign Languages faculty. You will be tasked with supporting the MFL teachers and the students. You will be spread across different year groups depending on the demands of the department. The school requires candidates to assist in raising the competency levels of students learning foreign languages as well as supporting GCSE and A-Level students. The ability to find different and innovative ways of assisting learning will stand you in excellent stead.

We are committed to staff development and offer the opportunity for excellent professional development in order to prepare for future career progression.
