Are you an ambitious, enthusiastic teacher ready to take up a new challenge in a widely respected international school? Do you have knowledge of the English curriculum and experience or interest in teaching A Level and IB? Are you looking to work in a country where an appropriate work/life balance is a priority? If so, then this position could be the perfect match for you.
We are currently looking for a full-time (part-time applicants will also be considered) Business teacher for our Senior School Voorschoten (SSV) campus, just outside of The Hague, from 1 September 2019.
Find out all you need to know about working for the BSN Senior School Voorschoten in our recruitment brochure.
There are currently four teachers (3 full time, 1 part time who is also Head of Careers Education) delivering the subject disciplines, Business and Economics, and they work closely together sharing resources and collaborating on new ideas, although subjects have autonomous heads of department. Each staff member has the ability to contribute to any of the three qualifications’ programmes of study, although in practice we tend to focus on one and help out in the others. Applicants would, therefore, be expected to be comfortable teaching IB, A level or BTEC for which any essential training would be provided.
Why this role?
Our Business and Economics programmes are delivered exclusively in KS5, where approximately one-third of our Sixth Form students follow a programme in Business or Economics. We deliver a comprehensive range of qualifications, including IBDP, IBCP, A level and BTEC. A significant majority of our students go on to study these subjects in Higher Education.
In Business, we offer both A level (AQA) and BTEC (Level 3 Extended Diploma and Diploma). In Economics, we offer the Edexcel A level course and the IB. We run an exciting range of trips to local institutions in the Netherlands, such as the Stock Exchange, and have an annual overseas visit usually to London where we use our Alumni connections to visit a range of high profile businesses.
All teachers and students make extensive use of the school’s IT infrastructure and deliver lessons/material through Canvas (the school’s VLE) and Onenote. As a result, we have developed interactive activities that students use both in and out of lessons, as well as being able to share resources efficiently with other members of the department
