Economics Teacher

Required from September 2020; 12 month fixed term contract.
Closing date: 6pm, Tuesday 21 January 2020.

Wellington College is one of the world’s leading co-educational boarding and day schools and has an enviable reputation for excellence and innovation. We’re currently looking for an Economics Teacher to take on this challenging and rewarding one-year fixed term role.

Our Economics curriculum offers an extensive, inspiring and enriching range of activities that helps our pupils to develop fully as rounded individuals. We currently teach nearly 300 pupils A Level Economics (Edexcel), A Level Business Studies (Edexcel), IB Economics and IB Business and Management, while our numbers make us the largest optional subject in the 6th form. Join us, and, as well as delivering a heavy International Baccalaureate teaching timetable, you will play a full role in the extra-curricular and pastoral life of the college.

Each day, we will rely on you to make your lessons a positive learning experience by conveying to the students your genuine enthusiasm for the subject. You should also be willing to digress, encourage group discussion and apply varied delivery methods. It’s vital that the department also prepares students for their onward journey from school, for most, that means university. You’ll help us achieve this by an increasing emphasis on independent discussion-led learning and continuous discussion within the department about that learning.

A great opportunity to draw upon your interests and enthusiasms, you will need a thorough knowledge of the 16-18 subject curriculum at A and IB Level.You will also need a good level degree in a directly related subject and a sharp and progressive vision of the subject. The ability to quickly build a rapport and deliver inspirational lessons to the full age and ability range of 6th form pupils is vital too. And, when it comes to engaging in extra-curricular activities such as coaching games, directing plays, taking pupils on trips etc., again, you are willing and able.

Not only is this an excellent career development opportunity, it also comes with a generous salary and benefits package. So, if you are committed to boarding school life, have a sharp and progressive vision of the subject and are keen to continue to develop professionally, apply today.
