UWC Atlantic is at the heart of a powerful global movement and at the vanguard of progressive education worldwide. We are proud to be a part of the UWC family of 18 schools and colleges worldwide – and for our courage to champion the values, ideas and aspirations in which we all believe. We are driven by the UWC mission to make education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future. It drives everything we do.
We continue to embrace the spirit of those pioneers who not only created the College in Wales in 1962 and launched the UWC movement in 1967 but who also co-created the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme, in collaboration with the International School of Geneva (Ecolint) and UN International School in New York (UNIS).
Our multicultural student body, from over 90 countries every year, comprises young people from vastly differing political, religious, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. They are selected to attend UWC Atlantic based on their demonstrated promise and potential, to make a difference in the fields of sustainability, social justice and peace. These inspirational young people are the next generation of change makers, empowered to go on to careers and lives that create impact locally, nationally and globally.
The College wishes to appoint an outstanding teacher of Economics to work within a highly successful Group 3 Faculty of Individuals and Societies. The Faculty has 8 employees and offers Economics, History, Geography, Global Politics and Anthropology.
Experience with the International Baccalaureate is an advantage but is not required or expected. What is most important is that you have the ability to teach Economics well (IB Higher Level and IB Standard Level courses) and with a passion, and it is essential that you are willing and able to teach another IB subject.
Economics in both SL and HL is a highly dynamic and internationally diverse subject which explores the problems of scarcity and resource allocation across four broad sections including:- microeconomics which deals with economic variables affecting individuals, firms and markets, macroeconomics which deal with economic variables affecting countries, governments and societies and International and Developmental Economics dealing with global trade and human development
The IB Diploma is a subject group award so all students will be taking mother tongue literature, a first foreign language, a science, Mathematics and Theory of Knowledge in addition to a humanities subject.
Class sizes vary but rarely contain more than twenty students. It is the practice of the Faculty for a teacher to be responsible for teaching each of their classes in a linear format for the whole two-year period. Economics is a very popular subject at the College and a number of students choose to write their extended essays in this subject, you will be expected to participate in supervision and have an understanding of research skills.
It is essential that you are able to teach another IB subject, such as the Theory of Knowledge or Maths.
A willingness to serve as a Houseparent for a minimum of 3 years along with a commitment to live on campus for 5 years is an expectation.
