A school like no other, Wellington College is one of the world’s leading co-educational boarding and day schools and has an enviable reputation for excellence and innovation. We’re currently looking for a Postgraduate Teacher to teach Art across the full age range from year 9 to year 13.
The Art Department at Wellington offers students a choice of disciplines: Fine Art, Art History, Textiles and Photography, as separate endorsements. It also enjoys a high profile and has an exemplary record of examination successes. Join us, and you could soon be helping to enhance the excellent reputation and results of the department by delivering dynamic and effective lessons in a friendly and supportive way.
As well as teaching a standard postgrad timetable allocation, you’ll play an active role in the extra-curricular life of the Department too. That will involve contributing to off-timetable workshops, enrichment extension programmes, life drawing, on-site exhibitions etc. Setting and marking examinations, sharing good practice and resources and safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children – all are aspects of a role that will see you make a telling contribution to the quality of teaching and learning in the department, as well as the wider college.
A great chance to draw upon your interests and enthusiasms and engage wholeheartedly in other aspects of school life, you’ll need a minimum of a good level degree in an Art related subject. You’ll also need an excellent understanding of the 13-18 Art curriculum. The ambition to learn and develop within the role is essential too, as is a willingness to participate in extra-curricular activities such as sport, drama, school trips, CCF activities etc.
Not only is this an excellent career development opportunity, it also comes with a generous salary and benefits package. So, if you are committed to boarding school life, have a genuine passion for the subject and are keen to continue to develop professionally, apply today.
Closing date: 6pm, Wednesday 22 May 2019
Interviews will take place w/c 3 June 2019
