Brook Hill International School, Belgrade is looking for a Business and Economics Teacher to teach students aged between 15 and 18 years old (Cambridge International Years 10 to 13).
The candidate should be able to enable students to:
- apply their knowledge and critical understanding to current issues and problems in a wide range of business contexts
- make effective use of relevant terminology, concepts and methods, and recognise the strengths and limitations of the ideas used in business
- distinguish between facts and opinions, and evaluate qualitative and quantitative data in order to help build arguments and make informed judgements
- appreciate the perspectives of a range of stakeholders in relation to the business environment, individuals, society, government and enterprise
- develop knowledge and understanding of the major groups and organisations within and outside business, and consider ways in which they are able to influence objectives, decisions and activities
- develop knowledge and understanding of how the main types of businesses are organised, financed and operated, and how their relations with other organisations, consumers, employees, owners and society are regulated
- develop skills of numeracy, literacy, enquiry, selection and use of relevant sources of information, presentation and interpretation
- develop an awareness of the nature and significance of innovation and change within the context of business activities
- acquire a foundation for further study of business or other subjects.
As a teacher, you will refer again and again to these concepts, which can serve as tools when considering both familiar and unfamiliar issues and contexts in economics.
- Scarcity and choice The fundamental problem in economics is that resources are scarce and wants are unlimited, so there is always a choice required between competing uses for the resources.
- The margin and change Decision-making by individuals, firms and governments is based on choices at the margin; that is, once behaviour has been optimised, any change will be detrimental as long as conditions remain the same.
- Equilibrium and efficiency Prices are set by markets, are always moving in to and out of equilibrium, and can be both efficient and inefficient in different ways and over different time periods.
- Regulation and equity There is a trade-off between, on the one hand, freedom for firms and individuals in unregulated markets and, on the other hand, greater social equality and equity through the government regulation of individuals and markets.
- Progress and development Economics studies how societies can progress in measurable money terms and develop in a wider more normative sense.
In addition to these areas, the candidate will need to:
- Faithfully implement curriculum
- Manage classroom climate and operation
- Promote achievement
- Meet professional responsibilities
- Fulfill other duties and responsibilities as needed or assigned.
Prior teaching experience is preferred.
C1 level of English required.
