St George’s is seeking to appoint a full-time Head of Business and Economics for January 2018. The role is principally to bring inspirational teaching to Business and Economics in the A Level curriculum, and to be responsible and accountable for the leadership and management of the Business and Economics and Department.
The Business and Economics Department aims to engage and inspire pupils and encourage them to enjoy and understand the foundations of Business and Economics, and their application in the modern day. In many cases pupils decide to continue their study of related subjects at university. We also aim to equip the girls with a wide range of transferable skills. We use a variety of teaching methods to deliver the course including traditional methods and activities associated with assessment for learning and self-assessment. There is a dedicated Business and Economics classroom which is well stocked with A Level resources. The main library has an excellent selection of books for wider reading.
The Head of Business and Economics has responsibility for (and autonomy in) delivering the entire A Level Economics course and currently co teaches the A Level Business course with one other colleague.
