Impington Village College (IVC)
Teacher of Geography
Required: September 2022
Salary: IVC Main Scale/UPS

Join East Anglia’s “State Secondary School of the Year”

This is a fantastic opportunity to join one of the UK’s leading comprehensive schools, recently ranked third nationally in the Sunday Times’ ParentPower publication. Due to the continued expansion of the College, we are looking to recruit an outstanding and passionate Teacher of Geography. A willingness to teach one of Business Studies or Global Politics alongside Geography would be an advantage.

ECTs are very welcome and will be nurtured and developed with an exemplary support package. Part time candidates are very welcome, and well supported, as we are one of eight schools in the UK to be a Flexible Working Ambassador School.

With a truly comprehensive intake, student progress is regularly in the top 5% of all non-selective schools in the country, and the College was recently awarded Sunday Times East Anglian Secondary School of the Year. Student attainment is exceptionally high, with 15% of all grades at Grade 9, 43% at 7-9 (or equivalent) and 95% of grades at 4-9. As an IB World School, the College offers a unique and innovative curriculum, with a weekly enrichment programme for all students as part of the College timetable, and with a focus on wellbeing at its heart. This is also a very exciting time to join us, as we embed the IB Middle Years Programme and become the first state school in the UK to offer three IB programmes.

Geography outcomes at GCSE are consistently excellent for both attainment and progress across a large cohort of students (typically around 150). In the first years of the reformed GCSEs, the results have been very strong, with over 15% of all students obtaining a Grade 9 and over 40% achieving at least a Grade 7. Outcomes are similarly strong in the sixth form, with students achieving above the IB World Average and both Geography and Environmental Systems & Societies are delivered and are extremely popular.

You will be joining an innovative and collaborative faculty where staff are highly committed to professional development and to developing students' love of Geography. You will join four other colleagues who teach within the department and support a range of trainees. The team run a range of exciting extra-curricular activities and trips to support the curriculum and are currently benefitting from a £1million grant to support overseas visits as part of the Turing Scheme.

With your knowledge and passion for Geography you will have the opportunity to build upon the successful curriculum embedded at IVC and to establish your own vision for delivering a high quality learning experience to our inspirational students.

In return IVC and the Eastern Learning Alliance (ELA) can offer you:

• the chance to work in a Flexible Working Ambassador School, where innovative approaches to work are championed and family life is fully supported, and wellbeing is a priority for all
• reduced contact time for all teachers to facilitate professional learning/reduce workload, with a further reduction for new staff as part of our induction programme and an extensive support package for ECTs
• the opportunity to teach all key stages including the International Baccalaureate in our Sixth Form
• the opportunity to work for a faculty where collaboration is a high priority and the programme of professional learning is outstanding
• excellent career pathway opportunities with a culture of looking to promote from within, including responsibility across the Trust
• support to undertake a Masters in Education through our links with Cambridge University, the “SUPER Programme” and other L5 accredited providers
• subsidised access to the ELA’s sports centre leisure facilities available for use before, during and after the school day
