The College requires a Head of A Level Business and Economics to oversee the leadership and management of the department within the College. We are looking for a full-time member of staff to join this friendly department in our successful and growing College.
The role will be offered with a view to starting in January 2018.
Applications from Teachers in Schools and Sixth Form College sectors are welcome. A full mentoring programme is organised to introduce all new staff to sixth form college systems and procedures and to support and encourage professional development.
We are looking for an exceptional candidate. We expect high performance from all our staff, and are looking for an impressive individual to inspire College students. Candidates should demonstrate their ability and suitability to both the role and the culture of the College.
The Business Studies Department is a vibrant and highly successful area of the College. Student recruitment numbers have grown rapidly over the last few years and the department now incorporates almost half of the College. The department hosts a range of extra-curricular activities which have included trips to Thorpe Park, Disneyland Paris and Barcelona as well as visits to universities and Young Enterprise. The department has also enjoyed success in a number of external competitions including Bank of England Target 2.0, the Stock Market Challenge held by Reading University and the Marketing Challenge held by Surrey County Council.
As a direct result of the growth in student numbers, the department was split into two separate areas for A Level courses and Vocational courses. Our students value the support the department offers including regular study support workshops, the Easter revision conference and the personalised support and target setting. A significant number of our students go on to study business-related courses at university and return to the college to keep in touch with us as well as providing guidance and support to students aspiring to higher education.
