The Latin Programme – Job Description

The Latin Programme is a small educational charity that has been working in London state primary schools to promote literacy through the study of Latin for over ten years. We are known for our innovative programme, unusual methods and proven results.  We use songs, games, kinaesthetic techniques and storytelling to bring Latin and language learning to life. We are a young innovative charity that embraces a social enterprise model and functions more like start-up. Creativity is an essential part of what we do.

We are looking to recruit a new part-time teacher to join our team. Our teachers work across the whole of Key Stage 2 (children aged 7-11years) visiting schools in London once a week to deliver the Programme as part of the school curriculum.

  • Someone who enjoys working independently and also can contribute in a team setting
  • Someone who is confident about managing behaviour in a whole-class context (up to 30 children in a class)
  • Someone who is responsive and responsible
  • A commitment of at least a year.

Job Description

  • Planning and preparing courses and lessons (using our bank of lesson plans and resources - according to The Latin Programme's curriculum and schemes of work)
