Head of Business and Economics

Kings’ School Al Barsha is inviting applications for a driven and passionate Head of Business and Economics to lead our highly successful department.

The faculty runs a highly successful Business and Economics GCSE and A-Level course and also has a dynamic new Level 2 and 3 BTEC Business courses. The faculty has a strong focus on innovation and our goal is to connect our students with real-world industry experiences, helping them apply, extend and challenge their skills.

The Head of Business and Economics role requires an excellent leader with an ambitious appetite for success and a clear idea of how this success can be secured within the Business and Economics curriculum, so that students enjoy their learning and thrive in terms of achievement and attainment.

You will be able to develop the Business and Economics curriculum that will ensure the ‘best by every child’ and give them the very best pathway through to our Sixth Form and beyond.
