About the School

Teaching Personnel are working with a secondary school in Caerphilly who are looking for a Humanities teacher to start immediately (subject to vetting). The school is looking for a dynamic and engaging music teacher with excellent classroom behavioural management skills.

This school is looking for a History teacher to help drive and implement new standards across the department. You will be required to maintain the new positive changes towards behavioural ethos and pupil engagement which recent inspections have commended the school for.
