A Level Economics Teacher- paternity cover

REF:1730546
Runnymede College is looking for a well-qualified and enthusiastic individual to join its popular and academically successful Economics Department for a paternity cover role from Monday 20th February until June 2023.
Job category/type: A Level Economics teacher – Paternity cover
Application closing date: 09/12/2022

Runnymede College is a private non-denominational British school in Madrid offering a British education to boys and girls of all nationalities from the age of two to eighteen. The education offered follows the British National Curriculum.

Founded as a private school in September 1967, the primary school was inaugurated in 1987, and since 1990, the whole School has been situated in La Moraleja, a residential estate 13 km to the north of Madrid.

Academic levels are high at Runnymede College. In June 2022, 67% of our students achieved A-A* at A level, with 98% of grades being A*-C. This is particularly impressive when compared with the 58% of A*-A grades achieved at independent (private) schools in England this year. In addition, 74% of our pupils gained A*-A grades at IGCSE. Once again, this is a truly excellent achievement when compared with the 53% of A*- A grades at GCSE obtained in the English independent (private) school sector.

In the graduating class of 2022, one student will be studying Maths at Oxford; another will begin her course in Architecture at Cambridge. Other top-ranking UK universities welcoming this year’s graduates include St Andrews, Imperial, UCL, Edinburgh and Bath. The United States has attracted more pupils than ever, with pupils starting their higher education at Columbia, Stanford, UPenn, Johns Hopkins and Duke, amongst other excellent colleges.

In Spain, IE and Navarra are both popular with this year’s leavers, and it is pleasing to see many of our newest Old Runnymedians attend universities in other EU countries like the Netherlands (Eindhoven, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Twente), France, Ireland (Trinity College Dublin) and Italy (Bocconi).

Runnymede College is looking for a well-qualified and enthusiastic individual to join its popular and academically successful Economics Department for a paternity cover role from Monday 20th February until June 2023.

Applicants should have an undergraduate degree in Economics, Business Studies, Maths or a related subject from a good university and should exhibit ongoing interest in the subject with students on a day-to-day basis. The successful candidate will be a positive and enthusiastic classroom practitioner with excellent interpersonal skills.

This role may include opportunities to be involved in the pastoral and co-curricular aspects of the school, such as Economics Society or Model United Nations.

The successful applicant will be responsible for delivering engaging and varied lessons to Year 12 and 13 A Level Economics students. They will enthuse pupils and ensure that lessons cater to the learning needs of all students, many of whom apply to Economics-related undergraduate courses at top universities in the UK, USA and Europe. On a related note, the successful applicant may be required to provide support to students with university applications and will provide guidance on university preparation, such as wider reading.

Economics is one of the most popular A-Level subjects at Runnymede, studied by over 100 pupils in the Sixth Form.

The Department follows the AQA A-Level specification, with all assessment under this linear specification taking place at the end of the two-year A-level course. The department achieves impressive results in public examinations and supports a good number of Economics/Business university applicants each year. The successful applicant would be expected to teach A* calibre pupils and to participate fully in extension programmes, such as the Year 12 Extended Essay Competition.
