We are seeking to appoint a well-qualified and exceptional Subject Leader of Sociology to join a dynamic middle leadership team who are committed to transforming the lives of young people in the Leeds City region. The Sociology department is one of the largest in the college – with approximately 250 A level students currently on roll - and it has a track record of delivering outstanding progress for all students. The team is committed to providing an exceptional curriculum where all students, regardless of their starting point, achieve beyond national expectations. The ability to teach Sociology and either Psychology and/or Level 3 Health and Social Care (CTECH) is essential.

If you are a leader in a secondary or Post 16 setting, with the vision to lead the strategic direction of a subject for which you have passion and a proven track record of delivering strong outcomes for students, this role offers an exciting opportunity to play a key role in the further development of Elliott Hudson College. The successful candidate must be passionate about improving students’ life chances and you must have a strong work ethic and high expectations of yourself and others and have the ability to lead staff and students in realising those expectations.

This is an exciting opportunity for candidates who are keen to be at the centre of our organisational change. The last few years have been exceptional for The GORSE Academies Trust and we are incredibly proud that Elliott Hudson College has been judged as ‘outstanding’ in all areas, by Ofsted in March 2018.

Elliott Hudson College is an ambitious and high performing 16-19 sixth form college that is committed to raising standards for young people across the Leeds City region. Working as part of The GORSE Academies Trust, Elliott Hudson College has a mission to ensure that its students receive an exceptional education and that they successfully progress to their chosen destination.

We are looking for professionals who want to work in a college that focuses on developing a culture of excellence where all members of the community strive to be better tomorrow than they are today. Underpinning our ethos are the core values of positivity, professionalism, purpose and participation. We believe that if all members of the community align their behaviours with these values that we are more likely to achieve excellence for all.

Through this approach Elliott Hudson College is becoming a catalyst for social change, transforming opportunities for the young people in the communities it serves. We are determined, through the establishment of this college, to ensure that poverty and deprivation should in no way limit either the quality of a young person’s educational experience or the levels of achievement to which those students are able to rise.
