Teacher of A-Level Business, Oxfordshire

Closing date:Expiring tomorrow


Date posted:
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: The school has its own salary scale (above the national scale) and pension scheme
Contract term: Permanent
Suitable for NQTs: Yes

Business at d’Overbroeck’s is a large, flourishing and very successful subject. The successful teacher will join a forward-thinking, well-established and well-resourced department.

We are looking for a suitable candidate to take up the post as soon as possible, and in any case no later than January 2020. 

The role will involve teaching several groups in both year 12 and 13 across the full range of the Business A Level specification. Experience of teaching year 13 (second year of A Level specification) is of particular relevance to this role. The willingness and ability to teach Economics in the future would be advantageous but not essential.

Although Business has enjoyed significant exam success, we pride ourselves on not being exam-centric in our approach but look to develop an understanding of the subject rather than just an expertise in how to pass exams. 

Economics and Business are both offered at A level. Business is also offered as a one year IGCSE course in our International School.

A high level of academic expertise is required to fulfil this role, as well as flexibility of approach, a sense of fun, a readiness to respond to pupils’ individual needs and an enthusiastic, open approach to teaching.

We are looking for teachers who are passionate and knowledgeable about their subject and able to communicate this knowledge and enthusiasm. d’Overbroeck’s offers teachers and students alike a friendly and welcoming environment where classes are small and standards are high.

Above all, what we are looking for are talented colleagues who are excellent teachers. 

Necessary Qualifications

All applicants will be expected to have a good degree in Business or Economics or a related subject and be able to demonstrate their teaching ability. 

The school does not require that its staff possess a PGCE or equivalent formal teaching qualification, though most members of staff do have an appropriate qualification.  

NQTs receive a full induction programme through IStip (http://istip.co.uk/) with the support and guidance of senior members of staff. Our recent report from IStip generously praised our provision for NQTs.
