TEACHER OF BUSINESS/ECONOMICS
0.3 - 0.5FTE MPS/UPS
From January 2018
We are looking for an inspirational teacher of Business Studies and Economics to join our successful and strong team of enthusiastic, energetic and passionate staff. Business and Economics is taught within the Faculty of Technology and Enterprise and is well organised, increasingly popular and successful. Our Class of 2017 outcomes were strong and are improving. Students start their Business journey from Year 9 as part of their foundations for GCSE, and all students complete a module of Financial Literacy during an enrichment carousel. At KS4 we offer AQA Business and at KS5 we offer both Business and Economics.
We will be flexible to recruit the right person. Whether you have experience or are new to the profession, we would like to hear from you. This is an excellent opportunity for any teacher looking to work in an exciting team and contribute to a changing curriculum. The opportunity for teaching other subjects do exist, particularly in Computing and Geography. We take pride in our happy and supportive team with a strong emphasis on professional learning. We will help you to achieve real excellence in your work. The department is well resourced and we have an excellent reputation for enhancing our learners experience beyond their studies, as exemplified by our recent successes in the Young Enterprise programme.
