From September, 2018 we require a well-qualified and enthusiastic teacher to join our highly successful Vocational & Computing Area. The VAC Department offers a wide range of Business courses at KS4 and KS5: GCSE Business; A Level Business Studies; A Level Economics; Cambridge Technical Level 3 Business. We also run a one year post-16 Level 2 Cambridge Technical course. Business has been growing in popularity at KS4, with typically three GCSE groups in Years 9 to 11.
Ideally, the successful candidate will be able to teach across a number of these programmes. Applications are invited from enthusiastic and energetic teachers who understand the imperative for the highest standards. Both experienced and newly qualified teachers are welcome to apply. Applications from candidates seeking a part time post will also be considered.
As a National Teaching School, we are able to offer exceptional CPD opportunities to staff at all stages of their career. You can expect a wide range of support to help you to achieve your professional goals from coaching to CPD workshops to educational research opportunities. SWCHS is part of the Saffron Academy Trust and there are opportunities to develop your career across our dynamic partnership.
SWCHS has been judged by Ofsted as outstanding and has a national reputation for innovative educational practice. We hold “Gold” awards from Sport England, Coachmark and the Arts Council and encourage all staff to take part in, and lead, extra-curricular events.
A recruitment package, including some financial assistance, is available. We operate a childcare voucher scheme and there is an early years nursery on site.
