Director of Business Education
£38,000 - £50,000 (dependant on experience)
Required for September 2020
Riddlesdown Collegiate is an outstanding school (OFSTED, May 2016) with a clear vision to deliver successful outcomes and positive futures for all of our students. They are bright, well-motivated and a pleasure to work with, whilst our staff are talented, hard-working and ambitious for themselves and others. Our superb facilities enable us to provide the very best learning environment and learning experiences for our students and it is the combination of these factors that leads to the high academic standards and enviable reputation that The Collegiate Trust is known for. I am very proud of what we do and what we have achieved at the Collegiate and, as a World Class School, I hold the highest aspirations for what we will do and achieve in the future.
As the Director of Business Education you will be responsible for the development of teaching and learning and the standards achieved in Business Studies, Economics & Accounting, as well as the provision and engagement with Business Education across the Collegiate. This will require the development of a strong and coherent curriculum intent which spans Year 7 to Year 13 and ensures that all students have clear opportunities to learn about enterprise, financial management and the business world. The person specification identifies the experience, skills and attributes we are seeking, but in short we are looking for: an outstanding classroom practitioner, a confident role model with the ability to motivate and influence and an ambitious leader. The successful candidate is likely to be an Economics or Business Studies specialist who will be able to teach across both subjects at GCSE and at least one at A Level
This is an exciting and very fulfilling post, providing excellent preparation for further promotion and, naturally, there will be high quality support and opportunities for further professional learning and development in the role.
