We are excited to announce that we are looking for an extra-ordinary individual to lead our academic team and to help develop our educational work at the Craig Bellamy Foundation Academy in Sierra Leone.

The Craig Bellamy Foundation is a football academy with 32 boarding students aged11-18. Our boys are the country's best young talent in football but are also eager learners in the classroom. With a similar school year to the UK we support students for five years through their secondary education. We have small class sizes and pupils that are keen to learn. We can also offer teachers lots of professional challenges as we work with a wide range of abilities with some students working on their early learning skills and others doing IGCSE courses.

Set in a stunning mountain location with sea views we are ten minutes away from some of the best beaches in the world. We are ideally placed for you to be able to explore what is a peaceful, vibrant, lively and beautiful country.

As Head of Education you will be responsible for managing the planning, evaluation and curriculum for the CBF School working with a mix of qualified teachers and graduate volunteers within your department. This is an excellent opportunity for teachers looking to develop leadership and management skills in a unique setting.

This role is perfect for both those with experience of managing schools and/or academic departments, or for experience teachers who wish to make a step-up the ladder and utilise their management skills alongside their penchant for teaching.

THE ROLE

You will be responsible for:

  • Teaching at least one core subject at Key Stage 2 - 4 Level
  • Managing a team of staff comprised of international qualified teachers, graduate volunteers and qualified Sierra Leonean teachers
  • Assisting the Academy Manager in the identification and recruitment of new staff and volunteers
  • Training of Staff and volunteers on a periodic basis
  • Planning and evaluating lessons and curriculum
  • Overseeing student assessments and maintaining records
  • Liaising with local and international education authorities and other relevant bodies.

Qualifications and Experience Required

  • Teaching Qualification (PGCE or equivalent)
  • At least 5 years of teaching experience
  • It would be preferable to have experience as a Head of Department and/or Head of Year, but outstanding applicants without this will still be considered.
  • Good communication skills and ability to adapt to different cultures.
  • Enthusiastic, creative and passionate about children and learning
  • Flexible and hard working
