Gosport & Fareham Multi Academy Trust are looking to appoint an inspirational Computing teacher. This is an exciting opportunity to join a dedicated team in an established department. As part of a forward thinking Converter Academy, the Technology department is committed to providing first class Computing education to all learners across the 11-18 age.
Pupils currently follow a bespoke Computing curriculum across years 7 to 9 and have the options of studying GCSE Computing or BTEC ICT in Years 10 and 11. At Sixth Form we offer A Level Computing and A Level 3 ICT qualification. Computing is a popular GCSE option. You will have the opportunity to teach Computing at AS and A Level, together with Applied ICT. You should be able to demonstrate a working knowledge of programming languages, such as C, Java or Python.
Computing as a subject is undergoing an exciting period of change. The leadership of the department is embracing the opportunities that this presents in terms of curriculum design and the opportunity to deliver challenging lessons that engage pupils with complex problems.
You will teach across the full age and ability range and to play an active part in all aspects of the developmental culture of the department. Colleagues are actively encouraged to build on personal interests and expertise in order to enrich both the curricular and extra-curricular life of the school. You may also be responsible for a tutor group within a year system. Considerable time is devoted to sharing good practice and developing opportunities for professional learning for all members of the department.
You should be an enthusiastic, conscientious team-player who loves their subject and wants to share this with pupils and colleagues. This post offers an outstanding opportunity to be part of an experienced and dedicated department. There are significant opportunities for further career development and progression and there is an excellent programme of in-house support and training for new and experienced staff.
There are twelve dedicated IT suites used for the teaching of discrete and subject-based Computing lessons along with a variety of independent study areas for pupils in the sixth form block and library. All of the main IT suites have an Interactive Whiteboard, and a range of hardware and software to support innovative teaching and learning. Teaching and learning in Computing is supported by a specialist technical team and the school has recently implemented a state-of-the-art technical support system across our hard-wired and wireless network.
