Job summary

Teacher of Sociology
Commencing January 2022
0.8-1.0 FTE
Permanent Contract

We are looking for a well-qualified and inspirational teacher to teach A Level Sociology. The person we appoint must have a lively and stimulating approach to teaching and learning, the ability to teach to a high academic standard at A Level, and a commitment to the learning and well-being of all young people. This is an exciting and rewarding opportunity to work with young people who value excellent teaching, enjoy learning about the subject, and want to work hard to succeed.

You will have the privilege, and challenge, of working in an exclusively A Level Sixth Form College with students that enjoy learning and have a determination to do well in their academic studies.

We look to appoint appropriately qualified teachers who enjoy teaching, thrive in an academic environment and who recognise that success in a Sixth Form College goes beyond academic success within a particular subject. You may have a background in teaching another Social Science subject but have developed a knowledge, interest and passion for Sociology and now wish to teach this at A Level. We would be interested to hear from you.

You will be supported by a team of equally committed colleagues who are working collaboratively to create an amazing Sixth Form College for our students. This is an opportunity to join a hugely supportive organisation where we value, support and facilitate your professional development. We benefit from being part of Suffolk Academies Trust and we work closely with our partners for the benefit of every member of our community.

If you wish to apply for this opportunity, please download and complete the application documentation from this webpage. Alternatively, please contact Claire Kerridge, Group Recruitment Manager, at for an application pack.

Closing date for applications received via email is 10.00am on Thursday 21st October 2021. Interviews are expected to be held on Friday 22nd October 2021.

ASFC is committed to Safeguarding. We aim to create the safest environment within which every student has the opportunity to achieve and progress.
