As the dust settles from the fallout of the transition from ICT to computing, many questions remain. Are students as interested in computer science as ICT? Does the new curriculum disadvantage certain pupils? Is its content relevant? While these questions remain hotly debated, one thing remains clear: the UK needs talented teachers to recruit students into this subject and inspire its next generation of digital talent.
If you're the kind of mission-focused teacher that sees beyond curricular controversy and strives to help students from all backgrounds succeed in a subject whose economic importance arguably outstrips all others, then please get in touch. Pulse Education is recruiting for a school that feels as passionately about these issues as you.
Our medium-sized, mixed 'Good' school needs a computer science teacher from January 2018. It's part of a small group of schools that shares best practice, so there are plenty of opportunity for developing your teaching practice and staying abreast of the evolving thinking in computing. This is a friendly, supportive environment that wants teachers to succeed. Leaders employ sensible, balanced policies around marking and lesson planning that reduce teacher workload without compromising student attainment.
Please apply if this sounds exciting to you and you have:
- a good, subject-relevant degree
- experience working in UK schools
- a demonstrable passion for the subject
Please note that all candidates are subject to Pulse's standard safeguarding checks.
