Wellington College is one of the world’s leading co-educational boarding and day schools and has an enviable reputation for excellence and innovation. We are currently looking for a Teacher of Politics to teach the subject across A Level and IB to pupils in Years 12 and 13.

Politics is a popular A level option at Wellington. We offer the subject at standard and higher IB level also, hosting two major politics conferences each year and welcoming a wide range of speakers to deliver one-off lectures. In short, we are committed to making the Politics department a centre of excellence in the study of the subject.

As well as teaching a standard timetable allocation to Sixth Form pupils, you will help to foster a collaborative, effective, collegial and supportive department team. Making a positive contribution to its efficient running, including setting and marking examinations, attending departmental meetings etc. will be key; as will planning for, providing and maintaining the physical resources necessary for learning and the delivery of chosen syllabuses and courses. And, when it comes to the extra-curricular and pastoral life of the College, we will count on you to participate enthusiastically.

To succeed, you will need a bachelor’s degree or higher in a directly related subject and excellent knowledge of key issues and current debates in US and UK Politics. What’s more, you are a dedicated team player who strives for excellence, but leads by example and is happy to contribute wholeheartedly to other aspects and activities of school life.

Not only is this an excellent career development opportunity, it also comes with a generous salary and benefits package. If you have a sharp and progressive vision of the subject, are able to deliver inspirational and informative lessons and are committed to boarding school life, apply today.
