We are looking to appoint an outstanding, highly motivated and committed Teacher of Business & Economics (0.6 FTE) to join us from January 2021 (or earlier where possible).
The postholder will work at Winterbourne Academy and will benefit from the opportunities offered by a large and successful family of schools. The Olympus Academy Trust (OAT) is a partnership of schools, currently comprising nine South Gloucestershire schools; one all-through, three secondary and five primary academies.
The successful candidate will be required to deliver high quality lessons, motivate, challenge and inspire our students. They will teach KS4 and KS5 Business as well as KS5 Economics. Although there could be a little flexibility for the right candidate. They will be committed to closing gaps and raising attainment across all abilities, whatever the starting point. They should have a strong sense of team work and a willingness to contribute and a desire to improve their own and the faculty’s practice.
The postholder will be aligned to our CRISP values of courtesy, resilience, integrity, self-reflection and purpose. We believe that by teaching, modelling and expecting these values explicitly they will become the cornerstone of the Academy’s vision and allow students to flourish.
We are looking for someone who will form positive relationships with students and their parents/carers, to support them and gain their trust.
Both newly qualified teachers and experienced teachers are welcome to apply.
Interested parties are warmly invited to submit an OAT Application Form outlining reasons for applying and suitability for the role.
More information about Winterbourne Academy and The Olympus Academy Trust can be found on our respective websites.
