What skills and experience we're looking for

Oasis Academy Sholing is seeking to appoint an inspiring, dedicated, and enthusiastic Head of Computing to join a successful and talented team of subject experts.

The Computer Science department is a progressive, developing team that places its students at the centre of what we do. An explicit passionate focus on high-quality teaching has resulted in our results improving every year. A shared curriculum based around the most significant concepts in computing, collaborative planning, sensible and focussed marking and assessment practices, as well as excellent department, school, and national CPD opportunities makes this an inspiring, exciting, and supportive place to work and develop your career.

The Computer Science department is made up of subject specialists who teach all students across KS3 and KS4. We have developed our own curriculum in collaboration with the wider trust which covers the national curriculum and prepares students for GCSE Computer Science.

This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced teacher looking to make a difference in the lives of young people. You will lead a friendly and supportive team that strives to ensure that all students enjoy their learning and surpass expectations of achievement. If you wish to grow professionally, join us, and become part of the team developing an outstanding academy.

The role will require you to lead and teach Computer Science at KS3 and KS4 to the highest standard and make a positive difference in Academy life. A willingness to support the Academy ethos and support of extra-curricular activities within the Academy is essential. You must be able to use a range of teaching strategies to inspire and motivate our students and demonstrate a commitment to sharing best practice with colleagues in the department. A passion for science and a commitment to integrating it across the curriculum is paramount.
