What skills and experience we're looking for

Enthusiastic, dedicated and inspirational Assistant Curriculum Leader for Business, focussing on leading the subject alongside the Curriculum Leader. You will instil a love of the subject into our students and a desire to succeed in Business.

We are looking for someone who is a role model for other staff, demonstrating professionalism, flexibility, initiative, collaborations and high expectations that are expected of all leaders at Churchill Community College. The successful candidate will be expected to support the Curriculum Leader with developing the Business Studies curriculum further and building on the excellent practice that already exists within the department.

You would be joining a lively, hard-working and enthusiastic department made up of staff who are completely dedicated to ensuring students make the best progress possible. We have a solid belief in the importance of Business Studies, IT and Computer Science, and in developing the transferable skills students will need in today’s ever-changing world. As a department, we are calm classroom practitioners who value the use of humour and treating students as individuals in order to create a purposeful environment in which students feel safe and secure and can achieve their full potential. During our last Ofsted inspection students spoke positively about the department.

Business is a very popular option choice at the school, with good numbers in Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5. It is likely the successful candidate would also teach some of our Key Stage 3 curriculum, which is a blend of Computer Science, IT and Business Studies. The department works hard together in subject specific CPD to train for this.

This is an exciting opportunity to join our school and work alongside an incredible group of staff and a highly supportive governing body who will always go the extra mile for our students.

Churchill Community College is a dynamic, exciting place to work with many opportunities available for staff and students.

Churchill was inspected by Ofsted in 2019 as a ‘good’ school; previously the school had been judged ‘outstanding’, and whilst the judgement of ‘good’ was very fair we have the aspiration of ‘excellence in all we do’ and need the successful applicant to embrace this philosophy.

Churchill is very much a community school, and whilst the community we serve is enormously proud and supportive of the school, a significant proportion of our students come from low-income or deprived households, with more than 38% currently receiving Free School Meals, and 45% eligible for the Pupil Premium. Even before Ofsted began emphasising the importance of long-term learning and cultural capital we had begun the process of reviewing and developing our Key Stage 3 curriculum in order to put a greater emphasis on them, something you will see reflected in our 2019 Ofsted report. However, cultural and curricular changes take time to work through the system, and our academic outcomes saw a decline in 2018 and 2019 following the introduction of the reformed 9-1 GCSEs. We were confidently expecting to see this trend begin to be reversed in 2020 had students sat their exams, however this did not happen and the school and community were subsequently heavily impacted by Covid.

We also host the Northumbria Art, Craft and Design Partnership ITT programme, and associate lead school for the North East Partnership PE SCITT, which remains one of only a handful of ITT providers to be rated outstanding in every area under the new Ofsted framework. This work is all evidence of our continuing commitment to high quality professional development for those who work in education.
