Teacher of Computer Science & ICT job summary

Biddenham is an 11-19, oversubscribed school that, as we expand, has entered the next phase of its development. Due to our popularity, we are growing and strengthening our already high performing staff team who, by 2025, will be working with 1500 students. The successful applicant will be teaching in our new purpose built Business, ICT and Computer Science block.

Biddenham school is at the heart of the community it serves and has been making a transformative difference to the current and future lives of its students for many years. We are committed to providing access to technology for all by providing chromebooks to all of our students and staff and developing innovative blended learning approaches to teaching.

Commencing September 2024, we seek to appoint a well-qualified, creative and inspirational Teacher of Computer Science and ICT. Computer Science/ICT is the beating heart of the modern world and here at Biddenham we believe that computing skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners and it is our intention that children have every opportunity available to allow them to achieve this. Computer Science/ICT is taught across KS3, KS4 & KS5 and applicants should have an understanding of the demands of the National curriculum, OCR and AQA specifications as well as being able to demonstrate a good level of programming knowledge, preferably using Python.

The successful candidate will be an excellent and approachable classroom practitioner, able to adapt learning in order to secure the best outcomes for all learners. The school sees the Form Tutor as a key role in the support, development and welfare of the students and teachers are expected to undertake this role with the same standards and commitment as their subject role. Above all else, the successful candidate should be enthusiastic about their work with young people and have a genuine concern for their development as individuals.

Access to Levelling Up Premium worth up to £6,000 per annum,
A diverse workplace,
Chromebooks for all classroom staff and students,
Exceptional professional development and career progression,
A supportive environment for ECTs allowing them to thrive,
