This is a great time to join one of the most exciting schools in the country. We are looking for an excellent teacher of Economics who is experienced teaching at A-level teaching and is passionate about bringing their expertise to a vibrant Sixth Form and a school full of dynamic, entrepreneurial students. The ideal candidate will be able to teach A-Levels outside of Economics (e.g. Politics, Business).
School 21 is a very special and different kind of place to work in. All of us are
striving to become pioneers (rethinking key aspects of education practice),
multipliers (growing others and building teams), craftspeople (who think deeply
about their practice) and people with integrity and humanity (driven by a strong
sense of values and purpose). This is what we are looking for in new members of
staff. We empower staff to find their voice and their creativity. We offer
collaboration and learning across ages and subjects. We believe strongly in
developing the full potential of all staff.
School 21 has pioneered real world learning and students have high quality work
placements in organisations where they do projects that really stretch them. We
believe the teaching of economics should involve regular and sustained connections
to the real world, with students applying the theories they are learning to real world events. You will analyse student data to identify underachievement and develop intervention strategies to ensure all students make outstanding progress.
Since we opened in 2012 we have put learning and teaching at the heart of everything we do. We have developed a unique approach to oracy including setting up a charity, Voice 21 (https://www.voice21. org/) which is already working with several hundred schools. We have also pioneered real world, interdisciplinary learning in collaboration with a network of extraordinary organisations: creative, artistic, high tech, professional.
At School 21 we believe that the purpose of education is to develop the whole child: head (academics), heart (character and well-being) and hand (generating ideas, problem solving, creating extraordinary authentic outcomes).
School 21 has established a strong track record - an outstanding ofsted, excellent GCSE results and a growing reputation, for example being the first and only international case study chosen by US educators, Edutopia https://www.edutopia.org/school/school-21.
