Applicants should have an engaging love of subject and an unwavering belief in the ability of pupils to exceed expectations, and must hold QTS (or equivalent) and a relevant undergraduate degree.
Candidates should have a drive to understand the thinking processes and drivers necessary for success in Science in addition to the intellectual and psychological barriers to the learning of the subject and be prepared to research and strategise to ensure that students make the best possible progress. As an educator, the successful candidate should recognise the need for students to develop outstanding habits of behaviour and learning and therefore be prepared to think outside of his or her discipline in order to achieve these aims.
