Description

We have an exciting opportunity to appoint a Junior Fellow: Mathematics & Computer Science, starting in September 2024.

The Winchester College Graduate Trainee Teacher (Junior Fellowship) scheme is an excellent opportunity for graduates considering a career in education. The Junior Fellowship is offered annually on a fixed one-year basis to recent university graduates and has been designed to provide aspiring teachers with the support and training they need to become excellent practitioners both in and outside the classroom.

As well as offering a constructive and practical first step into the world of teaching, the scheme offers an all-encompassing experience of school life in an independent boarding school.

About the Mathematics Department 

The successful candidate, who will teach throughout the school, will join a thriving Mathematics Department that has 13 teachers. Several teachers have research degrees in various disciplines – Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Physics. All colleagues find the Mathematics Department a stimulating and collegiate place in which to work and teach. Mathematics teaching at Winchester College satisfies the pupils’ vast appetite for the subject, and its teachers believe that learning in Mathematics should be enjoyable, memorable, rigorous, and challenging.

About the Computer Science Department 

The Computer Science Department at Winchester continues to go from strength to strength, since the introduction of the subject in 2021.

The successful candidate will join an experienced Head of Department, and a second established colleague in continuing to develop the subject. Continued Professional Development (CPD) is of crucial importance, and the successful candidate will have access to appropriate training to deliver the courses offered within the Computer Science Department, but also to support their own interests.
