Forest School are seeking to appoint an outstanding teacher of Economics to join the thriving Department of Economics and Business. You will join a cohesive and experienced team of three to teach Economics (and possibly A Level Business) to Year 12 and 13 A Level pupils, alongside full engagement in wider Forest School life.
The Department’s subjects are highly popular with pupils at Forest: this year there are 79 pupils studying Economics and 13 studying Business. Forest follows the Edexcel specification for Economics, each set is shared by two team members and high quality in-classroom learning is complemented by a full programme of guest speaker events, external lectures and careers focused workshops. Economics results are pleasing, with an average of 68% obtaining A* to B grades across the last three years. Business results are outstanding, with 100% achieving A* to B grades in the past two years.
The successful candidate will promote the best possible pedagogy in the classroom and share the department’s passion for inspiring pupils to enjoy Economics and encouraging them to realise their maximum potential in external examinations and beyond. Economics and Management related subjects are the most popular undergraduate degree course of Forest School leavers and the department contributes significant time and expertise towards supporting these pupils with applications, including to Oxbridge. The appointed teacher should continue to inspire and motivate colleagues and pupils alike.
NQT’s and career changers will be considered and, if successful, join an experienced and highly supportive department.
