Falkirk Council is seeking to recruit Music teachers who are highly skilled practitioners, committed to delivering the very best learning and teaching experiences for our children and young people. The post will deliver across both primary and secondary schools supporting the progression of music education throughout stages.

The key policy document for Falkirk schools is Learning to Achieve. This was co-created by headteachers, teachers, early years practitioners, support staff, parents/carers, pupils and other partners.

It sets out clearly our expectations for our all teachers, namely that they are practitioners who demonstrate commitment to meeting the needs of all learners by:
• reflecting critically on their practice
• being proactive in seeking professional learning opportunities that further enhance their skills and knowledge
• adopting flexible, creative approaches to meet the needs of all learners
• using current educational thinking to inform their practice
• making good use of professional collaboration in school and beyond
• communicating effectively with others

Successful applicants will:
• hold an appropriate music qualification
• be fully registered with the General Teaching Council, Scotland (GTCS)
• be able to demonstrate that they possess the commitment, knowledge and skills outlined in the Standard for Full Registration

Successful applicants who progress to the next stage of the recruitment process will be invited to attend:

• Classroom observation
• Short Leet interview

Applicants are encouraged to be explicit in detailing their skills, experience and attributes that they can bring to this post.

You will work 21 hours per week.

This post is temporary until June 2018 to cover requirements of the school.

All appointments to Roman Catholic Schools require to have the approval of the Roman Catholic Church. For details of this process, please consult the Scottish Catholic Education Service at www.sces.uk.com  

If you are the successful candidate for this post, you will be working with children and/or vulnerable adults and therefore you must have PVG membership.
