Job description

We are looking for someone with a passion for teaching and excellent subject knowledge to join our hardworking team. We welcome innovative thinking and seek somebody to share our vision of teaching our relevant and practical subject.

Business explores the way firms are run, how they make decisions and how these are influenced by the environment in which they operate and the social and economic changes in the wider world. Our intent is that by studying Business, students are enabled to understand the commercial world and question the behaviour of firms in the way that they impact all their stakeholders and wider society.

The department has well-established schemes of work and places a strong emphasis on teamwork. The successful applicant will be very well supported throughout their time here. This is an excellent opportunity to work in an outstanding academic environment with innovative and experienced colleagues and keen, well-motivated students.

The candidate would teach both A level and GCSE Business; a willingness to teach Economics is useful but not essential.

Members of the department teach across the Year 10 to Year 13 age range.
For full up-to-date details about the curriculum content, please visit the school website http://www.alcestergs.co.uk and follow the “Subjects” link to Business.

In KS4 lessons we deliver OCR GCSE Business to four parallel groups. We provide an interactive forum for discussion and utilise a variety of teaching methods to provide a vibrant learning environment. At AS and A level we deliver OCR Business. Business is typically taught by two or three members of the department so that the students receive a varied input into their education on a weekly basis.

The successful candidate will benefit from a cohesive and supportive network of experienced specialists. Nevertheless, they will need independence and resilience to manage change.

A Level teaching is central to the job as typically over 160 students take our two A Level courses each September. We have a strong record of success with a  significant number of our students going on to study our subject at university or securing places on prestigious school leavers and apprenticeship programmes, for example at KPMG, PWC and Mondelez International.

We are a close knit team who are experienced in supporting each other through collaborative teaching and planning. We also have experience in examining which informs best practice and benchmarking in our assessment. This  additional element greatly enhances our ability to deliver in the classroom.

We are particularly proud of our innovative teaching methods. Beyond the curriculum we provide enrichment activities to develop our students’ keen minds.

We offer a number of extra-curricular opportunities which include:
‘Working lunch’ series of external speakers, BASE Challenge / RES Essay Competition,
Young Enterprise and International visits to Europe & beyond.
The list is not exhaustive and we fully welcome new ideas.
