The position would present the ideal candidate with a wonderful opportunity to enhance the subject’s status in our curriculum, whilst being afforded opportunities for career development over the coming years.

You must be committed to being a team member who will want to ensure that all students, at all academic levels, receive an outstanding experience in their business and economics lessons. The successful candidate will have a strong commitment to exceptionally high standards of classroom practice alongside a genuine regard for exceptional progress and quality care of all our young people
