Business and Travel and Tourism Teacher
Business is a popular and well-established subject at St. Andrews and we are looking for an experienced and inspiring teacher to join the Humanities team. Class sizes are small and the students are motivated and enthusiastic, enjoying a lively approach to the subjects through a wide range of teaching and learning techniques. The ideal candidate will convey enthusiasm for the subjects and contribute collaboratively in the continued development of the curriculum from Year 10 to Year 13.
IGCSE Business and IGCSE Enterprise are very popular subjects in Key Stage 4 and in Key Stage 5, all students must study at least one Humanities subject in the IB Diploma Programme. In Years 12 and 13, students can also choose to study Level 3 International BTEC Enterprise and Entrepreneurship and/or Level 3 International BTEC Travel and Tourism alongside a number of IB Diploma Courses.
Previous experience teaching a range of these IGCSE, IBDP and/or International/National BTEC courses would be a significant advantage. For teachers without this experience, we would expect candidates to be proactive and forward thinking, willing to develop links with the local business community, organising guest speakers and supporting students with work experience opportunities.
At St Andrews, we pride ourselves on being an inclusive school, and have an excellent reputation for supporting children with special educational needs. Experience of teaching children with dyslexia, mild autism, ADHD etc. would be very good prior experience for a teacher wishing to join our team. Our Mission Statement commits us to meeting ‘all the needs of the individual learner’, and this applies equally to those students targeting the very highest grades at IGCSE and IB.
All classrooms have data projectors and access to the internet, and there is a strong commitment to integrating the teaching and use of ICT skills into all areas of the curriculum, where appropriate.
As well as their teaching, all teachers are also expected to contribute positively to both the school’s pastoral systems and the extra-curricular programme, offering an Extra-Curricular Activity that either supports or extends the students’ learning in their subject area, or from another area of personal interest.
St Andrews is committed to ensuring the safety of all our students, and expects all staff to share the same commitment (see our Child Protection Code of Conduct). No teacher will be appointed without at least two references, including one from the most recent employer, a ten year criminal record check and relevant regional Prohibition Order/DBS checks.
