Teacher of Business Studies
Start date 24 August 2018 (first teaching day 28 August 2018)
Ashby School is a thriving, successful and over-subscribed 14-19 Academy with 1700 students on roll including 600 post-16. Conveniently located close to the M42 and M1, within easy reach of several areas of outstanding natural beauty and with the newly created national forest on the doorstep, the school is set in its own attractive grounds in the expanding market town of Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire. With an excellent reputation within the local community a recent Ofsted inspection found the school to be a ‘good school’ in all inspection categories.
We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and determined teacher with a passion for their subject and the ability to enthuse and engage students and the dedication, commitment and strategies to raise attainment at both Key Stages 4 and 5. The ability to offer Economics would be advantageous but is not essential.
We offer an excellent Continued Professional Development programme within a supportive environment and are committed to continuous improvement in both teaching and learning.
Lessons in the Business department are delivered in a suite of dedicated classrooms fully equipped with projection and surround sound systems, Apple TV connections, internet access and an extensive range of resources for both GCSE and A-level. Collaborative planning and teamwork are a strong focus of the department. Regular trips and visits are organised. Recent visits have included the Warner Brothers Studios, East Midlands Airport, the BBC Studios and Drayton Manor Park. We regularly enter competitions and have either won or achieved second place in the BASE Accountancy Competition for the past 4 years. Revision conferences at Star City, Birmingham, are regularly attended.
Recently the school has made major investment in the latest technologies including a state of the art interactive 3-D learning hub, further enhancing understanding and promoting creativity in learning.
We are proud of the work we do at Ashby School: if you are passionate about teaching and learning and share our enthusiasm for Business Studies we would be delighted to hear from you.
