We are seeking to appoint an inspirational and enthusiastic Key Stage 4 Leader to join our large and innovative department. The school is developing a modern curriculum that prepares students for the demands of a fast-paced, challenging world, and computer technologies will be at the centre of this. For this reason the school offers a three year KS4 programme that includes the opportunity of taking the popular options, AQA GCSE in computer science, OCR Nationals in Information Science and OCR Nationals in Creative i-media. These qualifications lead on to A Level AQA computer science and Level 3 Cambridge Technical diploma in IT. KS5 teaching would be available for a suitably qualified candidate. The successful candidate will be expected to support the department as it continues to improve the quality of provision for all our KS4 students.
The person we are seeking will:
- be passionate about Computing and ICT and have the desire to share that passion with students
- be a successful teacher across age and ability ranges
- be an innovative and inspiring classroom teacher
- have the potential for strong leadership and management and have good communication skills
- be able to develop challenging and exciting programmes of study for Key Stage 4 students, especially in terms of varied curriculum pathways in Computing and ICT.
