A school like no other, Wellington College is one of the world’s leading co-educational boarding and day schools and has an enviable reputation for excellence and innovation. We’re currently looking for a passionate, innovative and experienced Teacher of Computer Science to head up one of our fastest growing departments.
The Computer Science department is a leader in student-led learning and continues to empower gifted and talented students through leadership opportunities. Curriculum subjects are taught using the Python programming language and we also run a number of interesting extra-curricular activities each week. Join us, and, as well as leading and inspiring a small team, you will be able to make the most of your excellent skills as a classroom practitioner.
In addition to teaching the subject to Year 9 to 13 pupils, we will rely on you to coordinate the development of appropriate courses and syllabuses and ensure colleagues can access the material resources they need. Overseeing best practice in teaching, fostering a collaborative, collegial and supportive departmental team, helping to recruit new staff and contributing to the formulation of an annual development plan – all are aspects of a role that will also see you contribute fully to the extra-curricular and pastoral life of the College.
To succeed, you will need a good level degree in a directly related subject. We will also be looking for thorough knowledge of the subject curriculum up to GCSE/IGCSE and A/IB level. A willingness to participate enthusiastically in sports, social events, chapel services, musical rehearsals etc. is also required. You should have a sharp and progressive vision of the subject, deliver inspirational and informative lessons, lead by example and strive for excellence in everything you do.
Not only is this an excellent career development opportunity, it also comes with a generous salary and benefits package. So, if you are committed to boarding school life, have a sharp and progressive vision of the subject and are keen to continue to develop professionally, apply today.
