About the role
Teacher of Computer Science / Subject Leader
We are St Catherine's College - preparing students to stand shoulder to shoulder with their peers, locally, nationally and globally.
We are looking to recruit a successful classroom practitioner who will be responsible for delivering Computer Science to the next generation of programmers, network engineers and pupils with an absolute passion for computers. This is a temporary fixed term post to meet a specific need at the College.
You should be an inspirational, dynamic and enthusiastic qualified teacher with strong subject knowledge and the ability to demonstrate skills such as coding, digital creation and working with emerging technologies.
We teach OCR Computer Science at St Catherine's College at KS4. In addition to this we currently have a cohort of Year 11's taking the Cambridge National Qualification. Computer Science teaching takes place across four purpose built Computer Science classrooms, recognising the mix of theory and practical that a Science subject covers. The teaching programming language currently being studied is Python and familiarity with that would be beneficial.
We know it’s a competitive market and are proud of what we can offer:
Excellent career development opportunities
A friendly, supportive and caring staff team
CPD, starts immediately upon employment
A fabulous staff room with complimentary tea and coffee
A café that serves at breakfast, break and lunch using freshly sourced ingredients
Teachers Pension Scheme
Banked cover system promoting work / life balance
Highly visible supportive senior leaders
Same day centralised detentions
Great students - you can make a massive difference to them
Completed application forms and letters of application should be sent directly to the college addressed to Sandie Windsor, Head of Personnel SWindsor@stcatherines.college and arrive as soon as possible.
