Teacher of Science and University Teacher Fellowship

Falinge Park High School, Rochdale

M1 – UPR3

Opening Doors; Unlocking Potential

Start date – January 2020


An opportunity has arisen for a Science teacher to work alongside our partner, the University of Manchester, in developing partnerships across Rochdale and Greater Manchester. The SEERIH hub have been our partner for four years and for the past two years we have seconded a teacher two days a week to work alongside them. The promotion of this teacher to Head of Faculty has left a vacancy and we are hoping we will find a Science teacher who can teach Key Stage 3 and 4 Science but has the necessary skills to lead our Science partnership with SEERIH, local primary schools and lead on Greater Manchester Science Share and Greater Manchester Engineering Challenge. It is an ideal opportunity for someone who wants to use their Scientific skills in a different way or someone who is looking to develop before applying for leadership roles.

Falinge Park High School is a large, multicultural, over-subscribed, inclusive comprehensive in Rochdale. There is a warm, welcoming atmosphere in the school and our pupils are well behaved and keen to learn. There is a positive ethos amongst the staff and we are recognised for our high quality professional learning and development.

Our objective is to create a compelling learning experience for everybody. We believe the way to do this is by believing in people and building positive relationships.

SEERIH is a well established department at the University of Manchester and have engaged thousands of children annually in the Great Science Share and Greater Manchester Engineering Challenge. They are committed to developing a strong Science continuum from Early Years to Higher Education. You can find out more about them here. https://www.seerih.manchester.ac.uk/

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Successful candidates will undergo an enhanced DBS check, checks of references and employment history.
