We are seeking to appoint a dynamic, committed and well-qualified teacher of Business Studies.
As an academy, we are over-subscribed and consistently achieve some of the highest results in Sandwell. In our most recent Ofsted of February 2020 the school was judged to be good with outstanding features. We are extremely proud of being one of few secondary schools in the country to have been graded as outstanding for behaviour and attitudes under the new Ofsted framework. We have an excellent location being less than 15 miles from the centre of Birmingham whilst having excellent national links via both the M5 and the M6.
As an enthusiastic and committed teacher, you would join a welcoming, highly trained, and very supportive Business Studies department. The department is managed by the Head of Business Studies who is supported by Key Stage Managers. The department has great experience in successfully mentoring both ITT trainees and NQTs.
The Business Studies department is housed in a dedicated area of the school. Each classroom is well resourced.
Successful candidates will be:
- Highly motivated and passionate about providing all students with the very best educational opportunities.
- Believe in the importance of excellent teaching in Business Studies, and can inspire students
- Committed to further developing their teaching and professional skills
In return, successful candidates can expect to work with enthusiastic and well-behaved students who have a genuine desire to learn, to work with colleagues who are friendly and supportive, and to be part of a school which values its staff and offers ample opportunities for professional development and advancement. Experienced teachers, NQTs and current ITT trainees are encouraged to apply.
This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
Additional information and the Application Pack is available on the school’s website.
