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 Postgraduate Teacher of Business to teach the subject to pupils in Years 12 and 13.
Part of a thriving, popular and successful Economics and Business department, the provision of the Business curriculum at Wellington is extensive and aims to offer students an inspiring and enriching range of activities that help them to develop fully as rounded individuals. Join us, and not only will you learn the craft of teaching, you’ll have ample opportunity for observation, coaching and mentoring, as well as collaborative learning. In short, Wellington is a great place to begin a teaching career.
As well as teaching a reduced timetable allocation (currently around 20 lessons of 55 minutes in a 12 day timetable cycle), you’ll play an active role in the extra-curricular life of the Department too. This will include contributing to off-timetable workshops, extension programmes, pre-university seminars, competitions, trips, open days, prep school events, and so on. Marking examinations, attending departmental meetings and undertaking administrative and other tasks as delegated by the Head of Department – all are aspects of a role that will see you enhance the quality of teaching and learning in the Department and wider College.
To succeed, you’ll need a first degree in Economics or a related subject and the ability to deliver dynamic and effective lessons to the full ability range of pupils. As well as being an innovative classroom teacher who can help foster a life-long love of the subject, you’re adept at producing and sharing teaching resources too. What’s more, you’re organised, energetic and self-directed and have the communication skills it takes to build a rapport with pupils, parents, teachers and support staff alike. Last but not least, you’re committed to boarding school life and actively safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.
Not only is this an excellent career development opportunity, it comes with a generous salary and benefits package too. So, if you have a sharp and progressive vision of the subject and are keen to develop professionally in a high achieving environment, apply today.
Closing date: 6pm, Tuesday 1 October 2019
Interviews will take place: w/c 7 October 2019
