We are looking for an enthusiastic, dynamic and well-qualified specialist graduate who can teach History throughout Key Stages 3 and 4, with the potential to teach IB.
We are looking for someone who is passionate about raising learners’ individual achievements with innovative ideas to build on existing good practice. Alongside being able to demonstrate excellence in teaching and learning, you should also be committed to the role of Tutor, supporting a group of 15/16 students who benefit from a daily tutorial session. You will be part of a team which delivers the new Bailiwick Curriculum, including a range of international and UK qualifications. What's more, we expect you to make a full contribution to the ethos, identity and life of the school, offering a commitment to the broad range of enrichment activities that are available in the school.
About the Education Service
The Grammar School & Sixth Form Centre currently operates as part of the Guernsey Federation of Secondary Schools which includes St Sampson’s, Les Beaucamps and La Mare de Carteret High schools, alongside St Anne’s School in Alderney. Secondary and Post-16 education is undergoing a period of exciting change on the Island, which includes a planned new structure with one 11-18 all ability school on two sites.
The drivers in Secondary phase education for this significant transformation are: equality of educational experience and outcomes, equality of opportunity and access, and efficient and effective use of resources.
Employed by the States of Guernsey and based at the Guernsey Grammar School and Sixth Form Centre, you will be required to maximise opportunities for collaborative working, teaching and learning across Key Stages and shared professional development across schools. There is an expectation that you will engage in cross-school collaboration which may require working on more than one site to meet the needs of the Education Service. Furthermore, the transition plans for the new structure may also mean you will work from an alternative site.
This is an excellent opportunity to join a highly regarded and thriving History faculty which is well-resourced with a dedicated team of three specialist teachers. The success rate in external examinations is consistently high and further details of our public examination results are available via our website.
This post carries a five-year employment permit. If appointed, you can expect to:
- Benefit from the stunning scenery and enviable quality of life;
- Work in a well-resourced school with favourable PTRs;
- Be part of a leading development of History in education and be allocated a personal laptop;
- Receive a generous relocation package to the island, including rent allowance;
- Earn a competitive salary, above the UK median;
- Participate in a well-resourced public service pension scheme;
- Enjoy the benefits of more generous tax allowances on an island with no VAT.
