Head of Economics and Business, Sevenoaks, Kent

Walthamstow Hall Senior SchoolSevenoaks, Kent

Date posted:
Start date: September 2019
Contract type: Part Time
Salary: Competitive
Contract term: Permanent
Suitable for NQTs: No

This is a part-time position, but could possibly be full-time for a candidate who is also able to offer a second subject, ideally Mathematics. 

We are seeking an enthusiastic and well-qualified graduate to teach Economics and Business in the Sixth Form.  In addition, he/she will manage the delivery of Economics and Business, as well as the enrichment programme for the department.  The role includes contributing to Economic/Financial Literacy across the School’s PSHEE and Careers programme.   

The person appointed will be able to encourage girls to succeed in and enjoy Economics and Business. He/she is likely to have experience in teaching both Economics and Business, although candidates who have taught only Economics may apply if they can demonstrate a commitment to both.  Applicants for a full-time post should state which other subject(s), or skills, they can offer.

Both Economics and Business have grown in popularity as Sixth Form subjects with at least one group of each in Year 12 and Year 13 and, most recently, 2 groups of Business.

In recent years approximately half the Sixth Form students have opted Economics or Business and a significant proportion have gone on to university to read these or closely related disciplines.

The School regularly competes in the Young Enterprise Scheme with a substantial number of Year 12 students taking part in forming Young Enterprise Companies even if they do not take either subject.  Walthamstow Hall’s companies have a record of considerable success in recent years both at county, regional and national level.

The subjects are based principally in the newly completed Sixth Form Centre in a dedicated room with an Interactive Whiteboard.  

This is an ideal opportunity for a dedicated and ambitious professional to lead in key Sixth Form subjects and to build on the success and expansion achieved in recent years.
