Aylesford School and Sixth Form College

Teacher of Economics

Aylesford School and Sixth Form College is a forward thinking and exciting educational environment.  We pride ourselves on our commitment to our students and our community.

We are looking for an enthusiastic Teacher of A-Level Economics who is keen to support and enable students to achieve in their Sixth Form Studies.   

We are willing to consider both full and part-time teachers with the ability to offer a second subject.  18 teaching periods per fortnight would be dedicated to A Level Economics with the remaining 26 periods in a second subject depending on curriculum requirements and candidate experience / qualifications.  The school would be willing to consider NQTs.

Economics at A Level

Economics follows the AQA syllabus at A Level and is a popular subject with 22 students in Year 12 and 14 students in Year 13.   At Aylesford, Economics is a contemporary subject where students are encouraged to think critically about issues and make informed decisions.  The problems faced by individuals, firms and governments are considered in conjunction with the ways they can be solved.

Microeconomic topics such as individual decision-making, the importance of markets and behavioural economics, together with the distribution of income and wealth are investigated.  Macroeconomic themes such as development economics, financial economics and monetary policy are explored.

Numeracy accounts for 20% of the marks at A2 so skills in calculations as well as analysing interpreting data are developed.  When evaluating arguments quantitative and qualitative evidence is required.  Students are encouraged to have knowledge of current and recent events, so they can apply economic models, as a way of building arguments effectively. 

Independent learning skills are developed, and we have high expectation of work produced Economics students.   Economics is part of the Department of Business Information Technology and Economics department and is well resourced with access to ICT facilities.
