Business and Economics Teacher

East Riding of Yorkshire
Tradewind are working with an amazing school on the outskirts of York, who are looking to recruit an exceptional teacher to teach Business Studies and Economics, from the start of the academic year (September 2020), initially until January 2021, however this may be subject to change in the future. This is a vacant position, and the school now believe that they will be unable to recruit due to current circumstances. As a result of this, there may be potential for an extended contract, or even for a permanent position at the end of this contract, if that is what the candidate desires. If changes are made to current scheduling, and schools return sooner than expected, there may be potential for this position to start earlier. Senior leadership from the school are still contactable via email, so applicants will still be kept in the loop about proceedings, it just may be slightly slower than usual! The position is a full time teaching position, and we are looking for a candidate that can teach both Business studies and Economics up to Key Stage 5. Please see below the specifications that you will be expected to teach. This is a department that is extremely organised, and the subject leader has a wealth of resources to share, meaning planning for this position will be minimal.

Understanding that many candidates will only be able to teach either Business studies or economics to Key Stage 5 students, we (and the school) are eager to hear from students who can only teach one of the subjects to Key Stage 5, as long as the successful candidate is willing to use pre-existing resources to teach the other subject. For a truly outstanding candidate, there may be potential to only teach one of these subjects, with the other subject being shared throughout the department. In terms of weighting, the teaching will be 70% Business studies, and 30% economics, so ideally we are looking for a Business studies specialist.

All planning and marking associated with a teaching position will be expected for this role, and as such the successful candidate can expect pay that is reflected in this. Successful candidates can expect to earn between £120.00 and £183.00 per day for this position, depending on qualifications and experience. As you will be paid to scale for this position, you will be expected to attend any parents evenings that the school are running, and you will be treated as a permanent member of staff, with PPA time and free periods for planning and marking purposes. Ideally we are looking for a practitioner who is fully qualified with QTS, but of course we will be interested in hearing from practitioners who are qualified in the FE sector, with experience teaching students in the 11-16 age range. We would be interested to hear from NQTs who are looking for their first teaching role.

Due to the location of the school it is most accessible via car, and has a large on site car park that provides ample spacing for practitioners who drive. If you rely on public transport, please don't hesitate to get in touch as we may be able to organise a car share. This is a full time vacancy, but a job share may be possible for two excellent candidates who only have part time availability. This is an absolutely wonderful school which is a true joy to work in. Typical school hours are between 8:30AM and 3:50PM. Having been a partnership school of ours for years, we can honestly say that this is a wonderful place to work, and that the successful candidate would have a lovely reception at the school, and would find themselves treated like a permanent staff member.

Teaching Business Studies AQA A Level to First Year students
