Beginning September 2024, we are actively seeking a Biology and/or Chemistry Teacher. An essential criterion for this role is a proven track record in teaching either Biology or Chemistry, or ideally both, at GCSE and IBDP or A level standards (preferably IBDP). As this role has the potential to become a leadership post, we highly value the capacity to not only excel in teaching these subjects but also to develop and grow a small science department over time. Experience in curriculum development and the ability to lead and mentor others in the department will be significant assets.
Our school places a strong emphasis on scientific education, aiming to foster curiosity and critical thinking in our students. We offer a comprehensive range of examinations including iGCSE and IBDP courses in the sciences. An individual adept at inspiring students to excel in scientific pursuits, both within and beyond the classroom, would be an invaluable addition to our faculty. Beyond academic achievement, we seek an individual who can contribute to our vibrant extracurricular programs and perhaps even establish new initiatives related to Biology or Chemistry. The campus offers state-of-the-art laboratories and facilities that are conducive to innovative teaching methods and practical scientific exploration.
There is the possibility that this position will be based at either our Castelldefels campus or the new BSB City Main Campus.
UK qualifications and relevant experience teaching GCSE and IB, either in the UK or overseas, are essential for all posts.
A commitment to the wider life of the school and our enrichment programme, is also an essential expectation of the job.
Deliver engaging and challenging lessons to all key stages that link with the real world and which are aligned with department schemes of work.
Assist in the process of curriculum development and delivery of an appropriate, comprehensive, high quality curriculum program at all key stages.
Use homework and assessments to monitor and track pupil progress. Identify and support underachieving students and challenge the high achievers, implementing intervention as needed.
Provide feedback and communicate effectively with parents, ensuring that both the student and parents are aware of student strengths and targets, across the year.
Work collaboratively with the members of the department to ensure this thriving department continues to improve.
Work with colleagues and members of the SLT to ensure that the school improvement plan priorities are effectively implemented.
All positions are offered with attractive packages including very competitive salaries, places for children in BSB, and other local benefits. Full induction and help with settling in Barcelona will be provided.
Join a team of enthusiastic, inspirational individuals who appreciate the rigor of the English curriculum but embrace the freedoms offered by an international setting in order to deliver outstanding results for our students.
