Teacher of IT and Business Studies
Second in Department
Full Time and Permanent
MPS/UPS & TLR 2B (£4620)
Appointment Date: September 2019
We are looking to appoint a well-qualified, highly motivated professional to join our forward-thinking Enterprise and Creative technology department to teach IT and Business Studies on a permanent basis from September 2019. The successful candidate will be expected to demonstrate effective leadership of their own area of responsibility as well as supporting, and on occasion, standing in for the Curriculum Leader of the Enterprise and Creative Technology Department. The position will suit an experienced teacher or an ambitious NQT who is keen to take on the opportunities and challenges this post offers.
The John Bentley School is an ambitious state funded academy and sixth form located in an enviably beautiful location in the town of Calne in Wiltshire. In 2018, we were recognised as the most improved school in Wiltshire and one of the most improved schools in the country following a record- breaking year in terms of GCSE results. These results place JBS amongst the highest achieving schools in the county and that is all down to our amazing staff.
To further develop our ability to deliver a first class education, we are joining the Royal Wootton Bassett Academy Trust from April 1st 2019. This move will secure a vast number of opportunities for JBS students and staff alike and we are looking forward to making a positive contribution to this new partnership. As part of this process, we are changing the identity of our school to better match the ethos, values and vision of the Trust. From September 2019, we will be known as Kingsbury Green Academy and we hope to discuss this exciting development with forward-thinking candidates.
We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and committed colleague who will:
- be an effective and innovative teacher with a passion for learning
- bring energy, enthusiasm and new ideas to the classroom and the department
- be ambitious for themselves and their students, wanting the best outcomes for all whatever their backgrounds or their barriers to learning
- take the initiative to lead within the team, shaping and innovating the curriculum to ensure our provision is relevant, exciting and delivers the high quality outcomes our students deserve
- have the ability to write engaging and structured schemes of learning
- have the ambition and desire to play a significant role in the further development of the Enterprise and Creative Technology Department
The John Bentley School is a great place to teach IT and Business Studies. We are continually raising standards to produce the highest levels of student achievement.
