You're delivering a lesson on homeostasis when the epiphany strikes. Like biological organisms, careers also require equilibrium amongst interdependent parts. Progression, development, compensation, and colleagues that don't make everyone tense up when they enter a breakroom - vital elements integral to all work life on earth.

Pulse Education is working with a school it believes will offer professionals all those ingredients. Based in Southwest London, they are seeking a Head of Biology from January or April 2019. This position is available due to an internal promotion.

This 'Good,' mixed gender school achieves well above the national average at GCSE. Its clear, consistent behaviour management policy helps teachers focus on teaching rather than combating low-level disruption. A focus on team-building and cross-curricular cooperation develops talent and comradarie amongst its happy staff. The school's exceptionally low rate of staff turnover evidences the success of this approach.

The school values teachers' time, reflected by its policy to almost never ask its teachers to sacrifice planning time to cover. In this management position, there will be the opportunity to earn performance-related bonuses.

The successful candidate requires:

  • A track-record of success and high-achievement within their subject
  • Demonstrable commitment to raising attainment
  • Full QTS and subject-relevant degree
  • A clear passion for motivating students and colleagues

If you feel like there's some vital element missing in your career, please get in touch.

Pulse is an employment agency/employment business (as defined by the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003) and is acting on behalf of its client in relation to this vacancy.
