Great Barr Academy provides the perfect environment for an ambitious, driven teacher of Business & ICT to refine their practice and to gain in-depth knowledge and experience of strategies for improving progress.

We are looking for a friendly, hardworking teacher with a strong team ethos who is able to teach Business to KS4/5 and ICT to KS3/4. Applications welcome from experienced Business & ICT teachers with a track record of teaching consistently good and outstanding lessons (a January start will be considered for the right candidate) or from NQTs. The ability to teach Computer Science to KS4 would be an advantage.  We have an NQT induction programme which is considered to be an exemplar of good practice.


The Department of Business & Computing Team works hard to ensure that all students are provided with stimulating and challenging lessons in which they make good progress. The team are not afraid to innovate and see how the latest technologies and techniques can be used to enrich and strengthen the curriculum.  All ICT & Computer Science teachers have their own dedicated IT suite.

Business is growing in popularity year on year hence the need to expand our team of qualified Business teachers with this new post

At KS4, we offer GCSE Business, GCSE Computer Science and we are considering reintroducing GCSE ICT.

At KS5, we offer A Level Business, A level Computer Science (OCR) and Level 3 in ICT (OCR Cambridge Technicals).
