TEACHER OF SOCIOLOGY
(Additional subject within Social Sciences and or Vocational Education an advantage)

REQUIRED FOR SEPTEMBER 2022

We are looking to appoint an ambitious, enthusiastic, and talented classroom practitioner with the ability to teach across the age and ability range, although the main focus will be Post 16. Ideally, we require a Sociology specialist, but the ability to teach a second specialism in any of the social science or vocational education subjects would be an advantage.

The successful candidate will have an affinity with young people and be outward thinking in their approach to teaching and learning with the enthusiasm to further develop this increasingly popular subject. Our most recent Ofsted report (2018) described us as a “Good college” where “Pupils were found to have positive attitudes to their learning in their lessons, showing respect towards teachers and their peers.”

This post is suitable for new entrants to the profession as well as experienced teachers and offers an excellent opportunity in our popular and happy College. Our ECT programme is highly regarded.

The successful candidate will be:

• A dynamic and energetic practitioner with high expectations.
• Passionate about their subject, able to engage and inspire our students.
• A team player who will uphold our College values of Motivation, Commitment and Care.

We provide:

• A well-resourced, forward thinking and supportive Social Science and Vocational team.
• Excellent care and support for all staff.
• Comprehensive induction and on-going opportunities for Professional Development.

The successful candidate will have to meet the requirements of our Personnel Recruitment specification and be subject to an enhanced DBS check. A prohibition from teaching check will also be completed for all applicants. Minsthorpe Community College is committed to equality of opportunity and upholding the principles of the Equality Act 2010. We positively welcome applications from all sections of the community. Only applications submitted with a completed Minsthorpe Academy Trust Application Form will be considered.

Full-time permanent employees are provided with free membership of our state of the art on-site Sports & Fitness Centre, as well as the facility of an ‘outstanding’ Children’s Centre.
