A school like no other, Wellington College is one of the world’s leading co-educational boarding and day schools and has an enviable reputation for excellence and innovation. We’re currently looking for a History Teacher to teach the subject to students aged 13-18.
As well as teaching IGCSE, A-Level and IB DP courses, we will rely on you to offer support to the learning, pastoral and co-curricular needs of individual students in line with the school’s pastoral policy and core values. The History Department is a vibrant one, with a range of academic interests and teaching experience. As a key member, we will expect you to be able to teach a range of topics, though in practice sets are allocated as much as possible to suit the specific areas of strength of each member of staff.
Teaching a standard timetable allocation, playing an active role in the extra-curricular life of the Department and supporting the College’s aims and objectives for teaching and learning – all are aspects of a role that will also see you actively safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.
A great opportunity to help enhance the quality of teaching and learning in the Department, it is also the norm for teachers to coach sport at the appropriate level and help deliver service or CCF activities. Accordingly, as well as a bachelor’s degree or higher in Modern History, you will need thorough knowledge of the subject curriculum at GCSE/IGCSE and A/IB level and evidence of involvement in extra-curricular activities. Capable of delivering inspirational and informative lessons, you are smart and professional in appearance too. What’s more, you are adept at quickly developing a positive and authoritative rapport with senior and junior pupils alike.
Not only is this an excellent career development opportunity, it also comes with a generous salary and benefits package. So, if you are committed to boarding school life, have a sharp and progressive vision of the subject and are keen to continue to develop professionally, apply today.
Closing date: 23 January 2019
Interviews will take place: w/c 28 January 2019
