Lead Teacher for Economics job summary

This is an exciting opportunity for an Economics specialist to drive the development of Economics in our fantastic Wood Green School Sixth Form. Economics has a long tradition of excellence at Wood Green, and growth in our school due to its popularity has led to a growth in uptake. Often teachers of Economics are required to supplement their timetable by teaching beyond their subject. The post of Lead Teacher for Economics enables you to teach exclusively A Level Economics. However, if you do enjoy teaching Business or Computing alongside Economics, we would of course be keen to support you.

As Lead Teacher for Economics, you will lead curriculum development and be accountable for outcomes for students. Valuing subject specialism is an important part of our culture and you will join our thriving group of subject leaders who drive curriculum development across our school.

The right candidate – Lead Teacher for Economics

  • You will be a talented teacher with a passion for teaching Economics

  • You will show the ability to inspire students

  • You will have high expectations of yourself, other staff and students and be committed to your professional development

  • You will be committed to playing a full role in leading the development of Economics

  • Are committed to helping all our young people to be exceptional, well-qualified and well-rounded people who make a positive contribution to our school, our community and the world

Wood Green can offer:

  • A Department that achieves high outcomes and has a drive to improve

  • Students who thrive on good relationships with staff and who enjoy Economics

  • Development opportunities for staff, collaborating with teachers within school and as part of the Acer Multi-Academy Trust

  • A genuine commitment to staff wellbeing – wellbeing is a core value and staff wellbeing is one of our strategic priorities. We care about our staff as teachers and as people.

  • A school committed to enabling every student to achieve the very best they can with supportive colleagues and a constant focus on enhancing the curriculum, teaching and learning

  • A calm, purposeful environment that staff, pupils and visitors enjoy (Ofsted 2019)

If you have the vision and drive to lead the development of Economics in our school, we would love to hear from you. If you would have any questions or would like to learn more about this post / arrange a visit, please contact hr@wgswitney.org.uk
