At TTC we aim to develop each student's understanding of the practices that businesses use on a day-to-day basis and to widen their understanding of the world around them. Students will develop their ability to be innovative and creative, whilst improving their skills in team work, communication and problem solving. Students are encouraged to be enterprising, adopting a "can do" attitude and to develop the confidence to communicate effectively. Whilst the department prides itself on excellent examination results, it also realizes the value of hard-working, committed students who achieve their potential.

For students who are keen to learn the theoretical background to businesses and how they operate we offer two very different courses at KS4. We have the Pearson Edexcel Business First Award NQF Level 2 and AQA Business Studies GCSE. The BTEC course is 75% portfolio assessed and 25% Finance examination. The GCSE is 100% examination including a controlled assessment and looks at the starting up of a business and the growth of businesses.

In the Sixth Form we currently offer five courses which are BTEC Business Subsidiary Diploma, 'AS' and 'A' level Business Studies and 'AS' and 'A' level Economics. We have outstanding results for 'A' level Business Studies (ALPS 2), BTEC Business (ALPS 2) and Economics is a new course this year. We currently have one group of both Business and Economics in Year 12 but the real growth area of the department is BTEC Business level 3 where we have two large classes.

As an extra-curricular activity the department offers all sixth form students the opportunity of joining the Young Enterprise scheme whereby the students can set up and run their own professional company, taking part in trade fairs and competitions. The College has been very successful with Young Enterprise, winning the local area finals 12 times out of 17; the County Finals 7 times and the East of England one year. Also, we were 4th in the National Finals three years ago.

The department prides itself on its excellent examination success for all its courses from BTEC to 'A' level with a team of excellent teachers and resources, and all students are encouraged to maximize their potential. Also the department provides outstanding training alongside the college training programme which have enabled members of the department to gain promotions.

We are looking to appoint an outstanding teacher of Business with high expectations, strong classroom management skills and good subject knowledge, to cover a maternity leave You should have a vibrant personality and be prepared to continually develop your skills to ensure enjoyment and rigour in the classroom. We have a strong team ethos and are looking for a like-minded person to join the department at an exciting time of its development. We would warmly welcome and encourage applications from Newly Qualified Teachers. It is likely that the successful applicant would be expected to teach KS4 BTEC Business and GCSE Business Studies with the possibility of some sixth form BTEC teaching. The post is a temporary one from September 2017 to at least Easter 2018 to cover maternity leave.

As the sponsor, AET believes that all young people deserve to become world-class learners - to learn, enjoy, succeed and thrive in a first rate educational environment with the best facilities, the best teaching and the most up-to-date resource
