Teacher of Science 

Two posts – one with potential for responsibility of Second in Science
(with an additional TLR) available Main/Upper Pay Scale
Required from January 2025, or sooner if available 

We are seeking an enthusiastic, forward-thinking Teacher of Science with energy and determination to join our Science Department, and make a difference to the lives, aspirations and opportunities of our young people. There is the possibility of leadership responsibility in the department available for the right candidate. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept applications from early careers teachers (ECTs) at this time. 

Science at Robertsbridge Community College aims to give students a chance to investigate ‘why’ and ‘how’ the world and universe are shaped the way they are. We want to students to enjoy their Science lessons from the first moment they arrive for their induction day.
We aim to inspire students through a curriculum with observational science at its core. Fundamental to this is the idea that students will have the opportunity to watch demonstrations or video clips, experiment practically themselves, make predictions, observe, record, and analyse data, before finally using this information to develop their understanding of why natural phenomena occur. 

We aim to encourage students to develop a curiosity about natural phenomena and how natural and manmade substances interact. Not only do we want students to develop their curiosity for the natural world, but we also want to develop them as critical thinkers, using evidence to make decisions as they go into later life. We aim to help our students apply Science to their interests, whether that be their hobbies or their chosen career interest. We would like students to understand the role that Science plays in news and current affairs. Our success will be measured by how many students enjoy their Science lessons and would like to study Science post-16, whether that be an A-level in Biology, Chemistry or Physics, Forensic Science, Animal care or Psychology.
