Eastbourne College seeks to appoint an inspirational and energetic, full-time Teacher of English and Drama from January 2022. The right person will have a marvellous opportunity to work in a stimulating environment, where resources, buildings, colleagues and pupils all strengthen the process of teaching and learning.
The successful applicant will be expected to teach English, English Literature and Drama to pupils of all abilities throughout the school.
All members of Common Room are expected to play an additional part in the broader life of the College, e.g. by acting as a tutor in one of the day or boarding Houses, by offering their expertise in coaching team sports, or contributing to music, debating etc. The English and Drama departments have a long tradition of wide and varied contribution, recognising the value it brings to relationships with pupils in the classroom.
The position would suit an NQT, an experienced teacher wanting to put his or her experience to use in a different context, or someone returning to teaching. Statutory induction is provided for NQTs and there are numerous opportunities for professional development and career progression.
The College has its own salary scale and the successful applicant will be placed on the scale at a level commensurate with their experience and qualifications. Accommodation may be available for single or married applicants, including those with families. Teaching staff benefit from generous rates for the education of their own children both at the College and at St. Andrew’s Prep.
The post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and the Charity is therefore permitted to ask job applicants to declare all convictions and cautions (including those which are "spent" unless they are "protected" under the DBS filtering rules) in order to assess their suitability to work with children.
Eastbourne College (Incorporated) is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The appointment is subject to an enhanced DBS check, pre-employment medical questionnaire and positive references.
