THE ROLE - Chemistry Teacher
As a Chemistry Teacher you will be teaching Key Stage 3 - 4, with the offering of Key Stage 5 to be added to the timetable for a capable practitioner. You will need to be confident in delivering GCSE and A Level (if applicable) to a high standard. Ideally you will have an undergraduate degree in a Science/Chemistry field along with the appropriate Chemistry Teacher training qualification. If you have experience in teaching or an interest in other topic areas within Science or its wider application this will be advantageous. As with any Chemistry Teacher role, the ability to teach through the Science syllabus is desired.
Students and teachers alike enjoy lessons, which make for a positive and purposeful atmosphere throughout the school. This school is only looking to employ passionate educators, candidates who are prepared to fully immerse themselves in the school community, be willing to plan, prepare and deliver all lessons independently and take part in extra curricular activities.
The Science department is well resourced and well run, the team work together and continually raise standards. They have a great work space, bright and airy classrooms and a well stocked Science prep room that is managed by an efficient and experienced Technician. Each individual subject area has their own dedicated specialist technician. Enterprise and critical thinking is embedded in the school's ethos and teaching right across the curriculum, and this has been found to bring passion and excellence to teaching and learning. For an ambitious Chemistry Teacher this represents a great opportunity.
This position will be starting in September on a permanent basis and would suit either an ECT or experienced teacher. The school offers great training plus a clear and attainable path for promotion - many responsibility post holders have been promoted from within the departments.
