With the ability to deliver outstanding lessons in Computer Science through innovative and diverse teaching methods, we would like to hear from enthusiastic teaching professionals who are passionate about their subject and enjoy supporting and challenging students to achieve their personal goals and aspirations.

Delivering a high quality education programme in a well-resourced department, you will inspire students to think creatively in computational terms and enable them with the necessary knowledge and skills to change the world through technology.  Collaborative planning, regular team meetings and best practice being shared makes this a great department to work in!

Courses in the Computing Department remain consistently popular areas of study and as well as offering A Level courses, the department also offers highly successful vocational pathways in both a Single Vocational Advanced Level and a Triple Vocational Advanced Level.  

With a collective focus on ensuring that every student achieves their personal best, the College aims to create a culture and ethos which promotes initiative, curiosity, confidence and independence in all our learners and we are seeking to appoint staff who will actively support this.    

If this is the sort of environment you thrive in and you have the skills and motivation to guide and support students to both fulfil and possibly exceed their personal goals, then we would like to hear from you for the post of Teacher of A Level Computer Science who would also contribute to the teaching of ICT.

• With vision, energy and exciting ideas to build on current good practice and results

• That has the ability to engage students and inspire an enthusiasm for Computer Science through excellent subject knowledge

• Who is a strong classroom practitioner able to inspire high performing students as well as nurture those less confident in their ability 

• Who has the understanding and experience of implementing successful intervention programmes

• With the desire to share good practice and make a real contribution to the development of the department and the progress of our students

We can offer you:

• Structured CPD with opportunities for regular inset workshops and cross college sharing of resources and techniques
