We are looking to recruit to our existing strong team a successful classroom practitioner who can teach Computing at Key Stage 3 and GCSE. You should have excellent subject knowledge and a passion to teach Computing.
At Key Stage 4 our pupils have the option of two courses, GCSE Computer Science or Information Technology. OCR is currently the examination board for both subjects.
At Key Stage 3 the curriculum is based on developing Computer Science skills including information technology; data bases; spreadsheets; computer science programming including Python; binary data and online safety.
Computing is a hugely important component of our academy's technology curriculum. We have four purpose built Computing suites and the department is strongly supported by our experienced network team that provide maintenance of the network and ICT infrastructure.
Ongoing improvement in the teaching and learning of Computing at St Catherine's College is of the utmost importance. We are seeking to employ a member of staff who will plan and teach computing lessons that are effective, creative, varied and appropriate to the needs of the pupils and who will inspire pupils to appreciate the richness and diversity of the computing world by engaging in current trends.
