TEACHER OF PSYCHOLOGY (Maternity cover)
The post is temporary (maternity cover) and is full-time and planned to run for one year from Easter 2018. It provides an excellent opportunity for a teacher with enthusiasm and drive who wishes to work in a strongly academic sixth form college, which is committed to lively, student-centred teaching and a concern for meeting the needs of individual students.
Applications will be welcomed from well-qualified graduates, wishing to begin their teaching career by specialising in sixth form teaching. Newly qualified teachers are able to acquire Qualified Teacher Status at sixth form colleges and the college arranges for the necessary pre-16 teaching experience at one of our partner 11-16 schools. For experienced teachers, post-16 experience in sixth form, tertiary or general FE colleges and maintained or independent schools will be equally relevant. Although a postgraduate teaching qualification is preferred, applicants without such a qualification are also encouraged to apply. The college is fully committed to supporting all members of staff through staff development and in-service training.
There are currently 330 students in Year 12 and 250 in Year 13 and these numbers continue to grow each year, making psychology the one of the largest subject in the college. We are teaching the new Edexcel A Level psychology specification for which appropriate support and training will be provided. In addition to timetabled lessons, subject staff work with students in dedicated workshop time to consolidate and extend their learning. The majority of our students choose to attend university after their time at college, with many seeking courses in psychology or related courses.
