Part-time (to 0.7) Research Projects (EPQ/HPQ) Co-Ordinator for January 2018
We are seeking a dedicated and experienced part-time teacher to lead on the delivery of EPQ and HPQ Projects and to oversee the development of research projects and skills across the school. The Research Projects Coordinator will also be expected to teach their own subject. We are looking for a well-qualified, dynamic and innovative teacher who enjoys working with highly motivated and talented pupils.
At City of London School for Girls, pupils can opt to take an HPQ in Y11 and an EPQ in the Sixth Form. These are popular options and results so far have been outstanding. 34 EPQs have been submitted in the last three years with 22 graded at A*, 10 grades at A and 2 graded at B. Last year was our first year of submitting students for the HPQ and 8 out of 9 students got an A*. In addition, there are a range of KS3collaborative cross-curricular research projects and the school is considering the introduction of an internally assessed Junior PQ in KS3. The Research Projects Coordinator is responsible for ensuring the successful delivery of all these projects. They will also be responsible for overseeing the progressive development of pupils’ independent research skills through these projects, for reviewing provision on a regular basis and for identifying further opportunities to enhance the pupils’ research skills in line with the School Development Plan Priorities.
