Located on an attractive campus close to Huddersfield town centre, with an easy commute from much of the North West and Yorkshire, Greenhead College has been providing the highest quality academic Sixth Form College (16-18) education in the area for 40 years.

At Greenhead College, we are very proud of our students’ achievements and we have a strong ethos of ambition and aspiration which runs through all aspects of College life. The philosophy of the College is based on the understanding that each student is to be valued as an individual. A successful and thriving Sixth Form College, and heavily over-subscribed (there are almost double the number of applicants as there are places to accommodate them), the College delivers A levels - in over 30 subject areas - to over 2,300 students who come from all over Yorkshire and Lancashire.

Greenhead College is recognised locally and nationally as a leading provider of education and has a long history of exceptional results. Our examination results are outstanding: the pass rate at A Level is extremely high, as is the proportion of students gaining top grades. In national education tables Greenhead College is ranked third in two key categories: firstly, in terms of high student grades in key academic subjects valued by leading universities and secondly, for ‘value added’, the measure which judges how much progress students have made on their course since their GCSEs.

The College wishes to appoint a full-time Teacher of Law to cover a period of maternity leave. The successful applicant will likely teach a mixture of A1 and A2 A-level Law groups, together with participation in law related Enrichment activities. Whatever your timetable, you can be assured of support and guidance from your Head of Department and colleagues. The full list of criteria required for this role can be found within the person specification attached. Please indicate how you meet this criteria when completing your application.
