What skills and experience we're looking for

The Opportunity

We wish to appoint a high-quality graduate who has the necessary skills and attributes to enthuse our highly ambitious students to join our school as a teacher of Business Studies and inspire our students to become Leaders for Tomorrow. Business Studies is a highly successful department within the Academy and is taught at key stage 4 and 5. The ability to teach A level Economics will be an advantage. However, we would still welcome and consider applications from just Business Studies specialists. This post would suit an ECT or a more experienced colleague looking to broaden their experience in an all through 4-19 Academy. A TLR may be considered for outstanding candidates and we would consider part time applications.

Our mission is to develop the leadership potential in both our staff and students and we want to be at the forefront of developing the next generation of school leaders. We can help prepare you for a future leadership position, investing in your development through regular coaching and a wide range of professional development opportunities, such as the NPQML.
