Psychology is a popular and well-established subject at St. Andrews and we are looking for an experienced teacher to join the team. Class sizes are small and the students are motivated and enthusiastic, enjoying a lively approach to the subject through a wide range of teaching and learning techniques. The ideal candidate will convey enthusiasm for the subject and contribute collaboratively in the continued development of the curriculum from Year 10 to Year 13.
All students study both Geography and History in Key Stage 3, following schemes of work based on the English National Curriculum, but adapted to reflect both our location in South East Asia and the international nature of our students. Humanities subjects are very popular both at IGCSE and IB, with many students choosing more than one from Business Studies, Economics, Geography, History and Psychology. In Key Stage 5, all students must study at least one of these Humanities subjects in the IB Diploma Programme. Psychology is a popular subject at both IGCSE and IB, and previous experience teaching these courses would be a significant advantage, as would experience of teaching Geography and/or History at Key Stage 3 and/or the ability to contribute to the teaching of another Humanities subject.
At St Andrews, we pride ourselves on being an inclusive school, and have an excellent reputation for supporting children with special educational needs. Experience of teaching children with dyslexia, mild autism, ADHD etc. would be very good prior experience for a teacher wishing to join our team. Our Mission Statement commits us to meeting ‘all the needs of the individual learner’, and this applies equally to those students targeting the very highest grades at IGCSE and IB.
All Humanities classrooms have data projectors and access to the internet, and there is a strong commitment to integrating the teaching and use of ICT skills into all areas of the curriculum, where appropriate, with laptop carts, iPads and ICT labs bookable when required. As well as their teaching, all teachers are also expected to contribute positively to both the school’s pastoral systems and the extra-curricular programme, offering an Extra-Curricular Activity that either supports or extends the students’ learning in their subject area, or from another area of personal interest.
St Andrews is committed to ensuring the safety of all our students, and expects all staff to share the same commitment (see our Child Protection Code of Conduct). No teacher will be appointed without at least two references, including one from the most recent employer, a ten year criminal record check and relevant regional Prohibition Order/DBS checks.
