Job description

If you are a dedicated, driven Citizenship Teacher who has a real passion for the subject and a drive to instil this in your learners then we have an exciting opportunity for you…

We are seeking to appoint an inspirational Teacher of Citizenship with excellent subject knowledge. The successful candidate will join the school’s highly successful and enthusiastic department of Social Sciences, working and collaborating with an exceptionally dedicated and talented team of practitioners.

Citizenship is a popular course that has been offered at Fulston for several years. The AQA GCSE course covers a range of topics from Life in Modern Britain, Politics and Rights to being an Active Citizen in our community. Students develop debating skills and are encouraged to become more aware of the society they live in. Citizenship is also taught at Key Stage 3 covering similar topics, allowing pupils to develop new skills whilst learning through projects addressing a wide range of global issues.

Fulston Manor is consistently one of the highest performing non-selective schools in Kent, this success is based on the quality of our staff and the excellence of our induction and support programmes. The school offers an outstanding learning environment for all its students.
Fulston Manor is focused on developing students into young citizens capable of making a difference. Here, at Fulston, we have a strong pastoral system at our core and we pride ourselves on being about strong traditional family values. All staff and students, who join us, are joining the Fulston family and we look forward to welcoming you to this community.

If you are interested and would like to apply please complete the school’s application form (download from school website) and send this in to the Head of School with a covering letter (email acceptable). Applications by CV will not be accepted.

The starting date for this post will be September 2020.

For any further information, however, please do not hesitate to contact the school; you are, of course, most welcome to visit.

We reserve the right to withdraw the advertisement early and to interview candidates during the advertisement window; candidates are therefore encouraged to apply at their earliest convenience.
This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment’
