What skills and experience we're looking for

Candidates suitable for the role will:

  • be an excellent role model and classroom practitioner, who is prepared to be innovative in their teaching
  • be passionate about personal and professional development and demonstrate a willingness to engage in evidence-based research through our whole school CPD programme
  • help extend and enrich students’ school experiences beyond the curriculum
  • have the ability to communicate effectively with staff, students and parents

What the school offers its staff

We can offer:

  • the opportunity to join a wider team of caring, committed and motivated teachers who are all willing to learn
  • a stimulating and creative environment in a school where extra-curricular activities flourish and teachers are encouraged to try new and innovative activities
  • a CPD provision tailored to your needs focusing on areas of research and development
  • a diverse workplace, with an engaged student and staff community who are currently collaborating on the school’s approach to equality, diversity and inclusion
  • a supportive environment where the work-life balance of teachers is proactively supported by the governors and senior leadership team
  • a two-week October half term
  • numerous other benefits (please see our attached information pack)

Further details about the role

We are seeking to appoint an engaging and supportive individual with a talent for leadership, who has the knowledge and skills to inspire our extremely focused, articulate and diverse student body. The overriding aim of the Economics department at The Tiffin Girls’ School is to develop students to be curious learners in a globally interconnected society.

Many students who have chosen Economics go on to study it in some form at a Russell Group university. As well as straight Economics students have studied courses such as Economics and Management, Economic History, Economics and Finance, Economics and Politics, and Economics and Accounting.

While the successful candidate will be confident in teaching Economics at A level to high achieving students, the school will support the development of the skills needed to run a department, and previous management experience is therefore not essential.

Commitment to safeguarding

The Tiffin Girls’ School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share and support this commitment. The successful candidate will be subject to both a full employment history and child protection check, and will also be required to undertake an enhanced Disclosure and Barring (criminal record) check.
