Would you relish the opportunity to teach A-Level Psychology within a college setting?

At Cirencester College, you would have the opportunity of teaching enthusiastic learners about the discipline of psychology, enhancing their knowledge of social, biological, and cognitive strands of theory. Students pick from either a crime, environmental, or sport pathway, and so in year 2 you may also get the opportunity to dive deeper in these specific areas of psychology.

You would teach surrounded by a large and supportive team who will readily share resources and best practices, and offer support whenever required. Within this environment we would help you further develop as a practitioner, as you in turn develop your students.

The psychology course is the largest course at the college with hundreds of students currently enrolled. If you want the opportunity to teach on the psychology team we would like to hear from you.
