Lead Teacher of Business Studies - Develop as an exceptional teacher and leader at King Solomon Academy

KSA is a pioneering school looking to hire exceptional people. This is a unique opportunity for an ambitious and high-performing teacher and leader who is committed to pushing themselves further and achieving amazing things with and for their pupils. We believe in high expectations and a sense of collaborative and positive enthusiasm which brings out the best in our team. Through weekly coaching and time allocated to professional development we can help our teachers excel in creating a successful environment for our pupils.

We are looking for an individual with a genuine passion for leading Business at King Solomon Academy and a belief in the potential of every child and that through hard work all pupils can access and benefit from a university education.

Led by the Head of Business and Enterprise, in Sept 2015 KSA introduced business studies into our curriculum with the launch of the BTEC level 3 business in sixth form. The success of the business BTEC has allowed us to introduce business at GCSE from September 2016 and we know have cohorts of pupils learning Business Studies in Year 10, Year 11, Year 12 and Year 13. We are keen to ensure that an entrepreneurial culture is spread more widely across the academy and for the business team organise a range of enterprise events. We run Young Enterprise successfully at sixth form and similar initiatives throughout the school, including STRIDE in Year 6.

The academy’s first cohort of Business Studies students progressed to university in September this year and we are incredibly proud of their achievements. The Lead Teacher of Business Studies will lead the shaping of the curriculum from Years 10 to 13, teaching cohorts in both key stages and leading our fastest growing subject area.
