We are seeking to appoint a teacher of Economics and/or Business Studies to join an exceptional department, teaching in the Sixth Form. The post may be combined with senior Sixth Form pastoral or other academic responsibilities for an appropriate applicant.
Economics and Business at d’Overbroeck’s have both been large, flourishing and very successful subjects at d’Overbroeck’s for many years. The successful teacher will join a successful, well-established and well-resourced department. Although both subjects have enjoyed significant exam success, we pride ourselves on not being exam-centric in our approach but look to develop an understanding of the subject rather than just an expertise in how to pass exams. A sense of what we mean by this can be seen from the Economics teaching resources available on the Eduqas website, all of which were developed by the d’Overbroeck’s Economics department.
The department generally has 100-110 Economics students and 30-40 Business students and is jointly led by Andrew Gillespie (Business) and Simon Harrison (Economics). They are assisted by four full-time teachers who are able to teach both subjects, and one part-time teacher who teaches Business
The advertised post is a full-time one, but the School is always willing to consider applications from teachers who only wish to work part-time.
All applicants will be expected to have a good degree in Business or Economics or a related subject and be able to demonstrate their teaching ability. The school does not require that its staff possess a PGCE or equivalent formal teaching qualification, though many members of staff have an appropriate qualification. NQTs receive a full induction programme through ISTIP (http://istip.co.uk/) with the support and guidance of senior members of staff. Our recent report from ISTip generously praised our provision for NQTs.
Applicants should submit a fully completed application form, CV and covering letter to HR@doverbroecks.com and a signed copy sent to:
333 Banbury Road
Please apply as soon as possible, but no later than Monday 21st May 2018. We hope to be able to hold interviews on the Wednesday or Thursday of that week.
