Computer Science - Postgraduate

From September 2015, this fun and forward looking school seeks a well-qualified graduate in Computer Science, Maths or The Sciences for an initial teaching position in Computer Science.

The Postgraduate Teaching Placement (commonly known as 'postgrad') at Wellington College is designed to provide the opportunity to develop sufficient first hand practical experience of teaching for the post grad to know whether teaching might be the right career. It is also designed to give Wellington College the benefit of a young person who is keen to contribute as positively as possible.

There are three main areas involved:
1. Academic
The choice of candidate will be dependent upon the postgrad having achieved a good result in his/her degree. Specialism in a subject that is offered at Wellington is essential. The teaching experience will be monitored, with regular feedback, by the Head of Department.
2. Pastoral
The postgrad would be required to help with a House pastoral team doing a weekly duty and to assist the Housemaster/Housemistress as required.
3. Sport
This is an important component of the postgrad job. We expect postgrads to be active in coaching sport (either Hockey and/or Rugby) under the direction of the Director of Sport. There may be some administrative duties attached to this.
4. Other Duties

Wellington is a vibrant school for both day and boarding students. Given the boarding element there will be regular supervision duties for postgrads to carry out. These duties are carried out by all teaching staff during the course of the term.

The Contract

Postgrads have one year contracts. A first year postgrad in 2015/2016 will be paid £15000. The postgrad will receive free accommodation for the year in return for the pastoral and extra duties that will be required. Food will be free during term time. Membership of the Wellington Health and Fitness Club is available for £4 per person per month. Postgrads are also associate members of the Common Room and therefore have access to all the privileges (except for voting in CR meetings) that this entails.
