Teacher of Chemistry (Part-time)

Eastbourne College seeks to appoint an inspirational and energetic part-time Teacher of Chemistry from January 2021. The right person will have a marvellous opportunity to work in a stimulating environment, where resources, buildings, colleagues and pupils all strengthen the process of teaching and learning.

This position would suit an experienced teacher wanting to put his or her experience to use in a different context, someone returning to teaching, or an exceptional graduate without a formal teaching qualification but with the right skills and vision to inspire and motivate young people.

There are many attractions to teaching at Eastbourne College, not least its location on the south coast in the sunniest part of the country. The College provides a safe urban environment in an attractive part of a peaceful town where pupils have easy access to shops, cinemas and theatres at appropriate times, and this strengthens the boarding experience. The railway station is close, with easy travel to Gatwick (one hour) and London (under 90 minutes). The beach and sea are a five minute walk away and the South Downs (the newest National Park) are literally on our doorstep.

The Post

The successful applicant will be expected to teach chemistry to pupils of all abilities throughout the school. Chemistry is a compulsory subject in years 9 to 11 with GCSE students following the AQA Chemistry or Science Trilogy courses. A-level teaching may be available for a suitably qualified or experienced candidate. Sixth form students are also taught the AQA specification. The successful applicant will be expected to share their passion for chemistry by offering enrichment opportunities to pupils outside of the taught specifications.

The College offers generous packages of additional benefits and pay; all staff are on a salary scale above the national average and have opportunities for salary progression.

The Department

Situated on the top floor of the Science Centre, the department has the benefit of some superb facilities. There are currently six chemistry teachers, who are ably supported by a dedicated full-time chemistry technician. Each full-time member of staff has their own fully-equipped laboratory, in addition to which there is also a project room that is suitable for seminars and individual research.

The department believes strongly in practical work as a vehicle for teaching and learning and is very well equipped with the latest apparatus. There is also a well-stocked prep room and we aim to ensure that opportunities for practical work are not resource limited.

Each laboratory has separate teaching and practical areas with space for up to 24 pupils to work, although set sizes are normally below 20 at all ages, and much smaller in the sixth form.

Each laboratory is equipped with a Prowise touch screen and a digital presenter. The building is fully networked, with wireless technology providing mobile connections to laptops and other mobile devices. Networked printers and a photocopier/scanner are also located within the Science building.

Through sharing ideas and processes we aim to offer a broad range of experiences and knowledge. We have particularly strong ceramic expertise within the department with two excellent teachers and two invaluable technicians with three-dimensional design degrees and freelance ceramics careers. The recent appointment of a teacher of photography has opened up new horizons for A level pupils who have interests in creative careers. Our expert technicians provide individual support for ambitious projects.
