Geography Teacher Full-time Permanent Position Commencing Term 1, 2020

Pembroke School is a co-educational, non-denominational, day and boarding School from Early Learning Centre to Year 12. Pembroke School offers the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) and is also an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, offering the IB Diploma and the Primary Years Programme (PYP).

We are seeking a skilled teacher of Geography with passion and enthusiasm for the subject. The successful candidate will be working with students in Years 7-12 across our Middle and Senior School campuses. They must be an excellent practitioner who can quickly form strong relationships with students and teachers within the Faculty, with a willingness to employ a range of teaching methodologies to engage students and enable positive student outcomes. The ability to purposefully infuse digital technology into the classroom and employ the use of spatial technology would be viewed favourably.

The Geography team prides itself on a collaborative approach where innovation and creativity are welcomed and encouraged. The subject is well resourced with a clearly structured teaching and learning program in line with the Australian Curriculum.

In Geography classes students gain a spatial, environmental and social view of contemporary society through topics such as urbanisation, population, processes at work on the landscape, wellbeing, globalisation and environmental quality. The inquiry-based, practical, student-centred curriculum allows students to develop problem solving and report writing skills. The use of GIS (Geographic Information Systems) is an integral part of geographic learning from Years 7-12.

Pembroke is a school with a strong tradition of success in Geography with the subject being taught both in the Middle School and in the Senior School through SACE and IB courses. The successful applicant would be expected to contribute to this positive culture of Geography at the School.
