Teacher of History

Cheltenham CollegeGloucestershire

For September 2021, a well-qualified and enthusiastic teacher or recent graduate is required to teach History to A Level and across the full ability range. The postholder will form part of a close-knit, well-resourced department which has been consistently one of the highest achieving at the College at both IGCSE and A Level.

The department members are always looking to emphasise the enjoyment and relevance of the subject and this makes the department a lively and interesting place. Pupils are encouraged to develop a deep passion for the subject and a sense of pride in being an historian. Our hope is that they will learn both to see and demonstrate the ‘fun’ in it, as well as regarding it as deeply relevant to their lives, and that of the wider planet. We view as particularly significant the fact that over half of our A-Level pupils elect to study History or History-related degree courses at top institutions; significant numbers of former pupils also remain in regular touch with department.

It is essential that College’s teachers are good role model for the pupils and are able to prepare them to make a positive contribution to society. A full and comprehensive list of duties, as well as further information on the History Department, can be found in the job description below.
