The Music Service is looking to appoint an enthusiastic, dynamic and well-qualified teacher of upper strings, with effect from January 2017. The person appointed will be required to teach violin and viola at primary, secondary and post 16 levels, inspiring and motivating young musicians in a variety of contexts. You will need to demonstrate a commitment to high standards of teaching and learning and the ability to direct orchestras and lead ensembles at our thriving Music Centre. You will be expected to make a full and distinctive contribution to the work of the Service.

Most Music Centre rehearsals take place on Saturdays, and teachers work Tuesday through to most Saturdays during term time. Instrumental lessons for older pupils usually take place outside curriculum time. Teachers will be expected to travel between schools during the school day with any instruments and equipment that they require.

This is an excellent opportunity to join a committed team of teachers in an established Service with a reputation for high standards, which is recognised as making a very significant contribution to the Island’s cultural life.

This post carries a five year housing licence. If appointed, you can expect to:

  • Work in a well-resourced service that follows an innovative Bailiwick curriculum based on the English National Curriculum and which has favourable PTRs;
  • Be part of a leading development of ICT in education and be allocated a personal laptop;
  • Receive a generous relocation package to the island, including rent allowance;
  • Enjoy the benefits of more generous tax allowances on an island with no VAT.

Salary will be in accordance with the Main Pay Scale of £28,534 – £40,972 per annum. There is also an Upper Pay Scale of £43,271 – £46,024 per annum for teachers who have successfully gone through the Threshold Assessment.
