Are you looking for an innovative school that blends academic learning with real world education? Are you a passionate educator who can convey complex theories and topics in relevant ways to young people? Are you interested in collaborating with world-class partners?
We might have the role for you…
We are looking for a knowledgeable and enthusiastic Social Science teacher to join our innovative, forward-thinking school. The successful candidate will work with our existing staff and partners to deliver strong academic results combined with exciting real world learning.
What we’re looking for
You must be committed to achieving the best possible outcomes for all young people and to valuing every individual equally.
Experience teaching A-level Psychology and/or Sociology is essential, along with a degree in a related subject. The ability to also teacher other Humanities or Social Science subjects would be an advantage.
We recognise and value continued professional development, so a wide range of training opportunities will be made available throughout your career with us.
Mulberry UTC has gone from strength to strength since opening in September 2017. The school's Sixth Form is now significantly over-subscribed and, in response to demand from students, we are now expanding the curriculum to run additional A-level pathways in Humanities and Social Science subjects.
We offer a supportive staff team, a state of the art building, opportunities for career progression and students who are genuinely interested, engaged and highly motivated.
Located in Bow, in the heart of east London, we value the skills and talents of all members of our diverse school community. We believe it is a privilege to be able to make a real difference to the life chances of the young people we serve. We are looking for someone who can bring out the best in every learner, regardless of their circumstances.
We are passionate about the importance of academic, technical and vocational learning. Our students excel in their GCSE, A-level, technical and vocational courses because of the great teaching and support they receive from our excellent staff team. Our brand new building provides students access to world-class equipment and facilities.
We want our students to have access to the same professional connections which young people from more privileged backgrounds can utilise. To make this a reality we have a wide range external partners in higher education, business, industry, the arts and the sciences who contribute extensively to our school.
