Closing Date: Thursday 20 January 2022

With a growing Sixth Form and a history of strong outcomes for students, our Social Sciences provision is expanding. Over recent years we have been adding to our offer as a faculty, which now includes Sociology A level, Level 3 Applied Diploma in Criminology, Psychology A level and GCSE, Politics A level, Philosophy A level, Business A level and GCSE and Health and Social Care.

We are looking to appoint a new member of the team from September 2022. You will be able to teach Sociology up to A-level and be willing to deliver Level 3 Applied Diploma Criminology. Experience of this course would be desirable, however full support and training will be provided if required. We would also be interested in hearing from people who have an interest in teaching other subjects within our faculty.

The ideal candidate will be:
• Passionate about their subject(s); able to inspire students and help them to understand the real-world relevance of the social sciences.
• Committed to supporting students to achieve their goals, particularly our growing and diverse sixth form.
• Willing to contribute to a small but growing team with an increased range of subjects on offer.
• Interested in contributing to our key development goals: closing the gaps through high-quality literacy teaching, inclusive teaching practices and diversity throughout our curriculum.

In exchange, we offer you:
• The chance to join a friendly, supportive and reflective team
• Strong opportunities for ongoing professional development; through our Trust’s comprehensive programme of professional development and generous financial support for external opportunities (e.g. MSc)
• The chance to work for a school where staff wellbeing and workload considerations are at the heart of decision-making.
• A highly inclusive approach to flexible working: speak to us about part-time or other needs.
