Applicants shortlisted for a Scale 4 or Scale 5 role will be observed teaching a 30-minute, whole-class lesson in a core subject. Applicants for a Scale 4 or Scale 5 role will be expected to submit and discuss their plan for the lesson.
Successful applicants for all roles will be invited to a panel interview.
The selection process is the same for the Scale 4 and Scale 5 roles. This means that applicants may be considered for both roles within the same application and process.
