History & Politics Teacher

Salary: Inner London (competitive salary based on experience and skills)

Start date: September 2020
Contract: Full time, permanent, subject to an enhanced DBS check 

We are looking for an excellent history and politics teacher who combines the rigour of A level and GCSE success with the creativity of developing rich and exciting collaborative projects. There is great demand for these subjects at A-level as part of Six21 so we are particularly keen on people who have a thirst for translating a love of history and politics into exceptional outcomes. It is essential that you have a passion for developing the best pedagogy for this age range 

School 21 is a very special and different kind of place to work in. We empower staff to find their voice and their creativity. We offer collaboration and learning across ages and subjects. All staff have a tailored programme of professional development which results in great outcomes for the students. We offer multiple routes to progression through subjects and pedagogies. We believe strongly in developing the full potential of all staff. 

Within this context your role will be to develop historical thinking. You will be trained in a range of pedagogies. These include Harkness discussions where 15 students debate and analyse historical texts around an oval table. You will become immersed in the language and techniques of well-being to ensure our children are ready to learn and thrive. 

English Language is central to everything we do at School 21 and the successful candidate will also play an important part in supporting all students in their drive to become avid readers, fluent writers and confident speakers. Our oracy curriculum and teacher toolkit and our collaboration with Cambridge University has resulted in a school filled with purposeful talk and thinking. You will have the chance to shape this exciting area of the school’s culture.
