Head of ICT
We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and dynamic Head of ICT to join our team in September 2022. The position will suit an inspirational individual who can lead and inspire our students and colleagues to reach their full potential.
The successful candidate will be able to teach ICT to students of all abilities across Key Stages 3 to 5. You will be committed to raising standards at all levels; delivering excellent lessons and enthusing pupils through your passion for the subject. This is a full-time or part time (80%) position teaching our Senior Girls, Senior Boys and Sixth Form. We invite applications from experienced practitioners.
To be successful in this role, you must be:-
- Suitably qualified with QTS obtained in the appropriate age range
- Experienced in teaching ICT through KS3 to KS5, with the ability to teach GCSE, A Level and BTEC
- Passionate in using your knowledge of current theory and practice in teaching and learning to provide highly effective curriculum delivery
- An enthusiastic team player, willing to participate fully in the School’s extra-curricular programme and wider school life
- Engaged with the School's ethos, thinking creatively and reflectively within an open, honest and hardworking team
Above all, you must want the very best for our pupils and be prepared to put their needs first. You recognise the importance of educating the whole child within a broad curricular and co-curricular programme, and of achieving high standards.
In return, we offer a positive working environment, with supportive colleagues and regular opportunities for professional development and training. Additionally, our timetables, class sizes and school culture support a healthy work-life balance.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and applicants must be willing to undergo Child Protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service.
In addition to an assessment of their ability to perform the duties of the post applied for, candidates invited to attend for an interview should expect further discussion relating to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.
In accordance with our Recruitment of Ex-offenders Policy, you are advised that all posts within the School will have the opportunity for unsupervised contact with children and therefore all shortlisted candidates will be required to complete a self-declaration form to declare any convictions, cautions, reprimands or final warnings that are not “protected” as defined by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (as amended in 2013). This is regardless of whether any such convictions, caution, reprimand or final warning is considered ‘spent’ or ‘unspent’.
The amendments to the Exceptions Order 1975 (2013) provide that certain spent convictions and cautions are “protected” and not subject to disclosure to employers and cannot be taken into account. Guidance and criteria on the filtering of these cautions and convictions can be found on the Disclosure and Barring Service website. Having a criminal record will not necessarily bar you from working with us: this will depend on the nature of the position and the circumstances and background of your offence(s).
