This is a truly comprehensive school serving both disadvantaged and highly affluent communities. We are committed to providing outstanding education for all in a safe, happy, and positive learning environment.

The Role

King Ecgbert School is seeking to appoint a highly skilled and talented Teacher of Business and Economics. This is a permanent 0.4 FTE role (FTE may be negotiable) to commence September 2024.

The Department

The Business and Economics Department is a small but expanding department. The highly experienced Curriculum Leader delivers the majority of the teaching and learning and is supported by another member of staff.

Business proves to be an extremely popular choice for students at GCSE with approximately 35% of students choosing to study it. Economics is one of our most popular Level 3 subjects and is consistently over-subscribed. Both subjects are seeing growing student numbers year on year and many students go on to study a range of Business and Economics based degree subjects.

Business and Economics Curriculum

In Key Stage 4 at Year 9, students who have opted to study Business complete a GCSE skills year covering the main skills required for the GCSE course.

In Key Stage 4 the department follows the Edexcel GCSE Business specification, which includes:

• Theme 1: Investigating Small Business: This includes a focus on small and medium sized businesses

• Theme 2: Building a Business: This focuses on growing businesses and multinational corporations.

At Key Stage 5 the department follows the AQA A Level specification which includes:

• Markets and Market Failure - Microeconomics focusing on economic behaviour in individual markets

• The National and International Economy - Macroeconomics focusing on government economic objectives and policies.

The Candidate

Ambitious for learning and a team player, you will have the vision, enthusiasm, and drive to build on the strong foundations that already exist in the department. Innovative and resilient you will have an unwavering commitment to student progress.

We are looking for staff who are enthusiastic and are keen to make a difference.

You'll be eager to learn and work well with others, and you'll bring the vision, enthusiasm, and determination needed to enhance the already solid department. You'll also be inventive with a strong dedication to student progress.

We are seeking candidates who are dedicated to serving a diverse community and bring with them experiences and viewpoints that will enhance our efforts.
