Job summary

Required for January or April 2021

We are seeking an inspirational, well-qualified and dynamic Business Studies teacher to join our thriving and supportive Business, Economics and Finance department. Applicants must possess graduate subject knowledge, have high expectations, be creative and inspirational, and have demonstrated success at all Key Stages, particularly at BTEC and A Level.

Business Studies is taught in Key Stages 4 & 5 and is one of the most popular subject choices for students within the Trust. We were unable to offer GCSE Business Studies in Year 10 in 2020 – 2021 due to staff shortages. We are very keen to re-establish the subject into KS 4 from next September, there are six groups in the current Year 11 cohort.

In the Sixth Form options available to students broaden further with AQA A Level Business, BTEC National Diploma, Edexcel Economics and LIBF Finance qualifications offered to students. In recent years the department has grown significantly and has achieved some very promising results. The supportive student culture created by the department has developed a positive ethos amongst students and there are a high number of students currently studying our subjects. Many students continue to study Business or Economics at University or progress to Apprenticeship programmes with prestigious employers.

This is an exciting opportunity for an NQT or experienced teacher who is committed to enabling all students to achieve the very best they can and is dedicated to their own professional development.
