Cheltenham CollegeGloucestershire

For September 2021, owing to an exciting phase of school growth, a well-qualified and enthusiastic teacher or recent graduate is required to teach Computer Science to GCSE and A Level, our new and exciting Computing course to Third Form and introduce Cambridge Technical in IT.

This role will bring an opportunity to be involved in further developing schemes of work for Year 9 pupils in Computing, ICT and digital health. A willingness to play a role in the Digital Strategy Group and shape how teachers throughout College use digital technology in the classroom will be an advantage. This is an exciting time to join College and be part of the development of teaching and learning within the school.

In Computer Science, pupils learn, through a blend of practical and theory, how computers and computer systems work; developing understanding and skills in programming and the main principles of algorithmic problem solving. It is an exciting and extremely relevant subject; pupils explore current and emerging computing technologies, the benefits of their use and the potential risks they pose.

In addition to teaching their subject(s), members of Common Room are expected to act as tutors, be attached to day or boarding Houses and will wish to contribute to College’s rich co-curricular programme and participate in College’s professional development programme.
