Health and Social Care Teacher - Part time  

Becoming a member of the Social Sciences team means you have the opportunity to add value to the department. You will inspire, motivate, enthuse and shape the positive mindset of young people and create a greater sense of self-belief that will help them in their success and in their life journey.

BTEC Health and Social Care has encountered significant growth in terms of student numbers and is a popular subject choice for young people wishing to pursue a career in nursing, social work and teaching. The health and social care programme has achieved outstanding results and has developed excellent links with local employers to support progression across the vocational area. 

With a recently completed £27 million development and state-of-the-art facilities, we were the first sixth form college to be awarded Teaching School status. Here in our forward-thinking Social Sciences department, we believe that by striving to achieve more, staff and students alike can be the best they can be. With a strong track record of building links with local employers, we are keen to continue this by working closely with partner schools and universities.

We are proud that we have been rated Outstanding by Ofsted. That’s largely down to the dedication of our high-performing teaching team. Focused on the particular needs of 16 to 19 year old students through a range of courses (mainly A Levels and BTECs), their aim is to educate the whole person within a close and caring community.

With a relevant degree and teaching qualification, you should bring first-rate communication and organisational skills. You must also be committed to ensuring that every student looks forward to their lessons – and gets the very most out of their time with us. 

You should demonstrate energy, imagination, resilience and a sense of humour. Knowledge of the BTEC Level 3 Diploma and Extended Diploma in Health & Social Care is essential. Whilst the majority of teaching time will be spent teaching Health and Social Care experience of teaching A level Psychology and/or Sociology would be also advantageous. Additionally, the ability to work with external agencies and partnership models is desirable.

We’ll make sure you enjoy all the training, development and support you need to achieve your ambitions as part of our friendly and co-operative team. You will have the opportunity to share good practice and play your part in shaping the future of the curriculum. In other words, this is your chance to help us reach our goal: to ensure excellent teaching and learning, as we become the outstanding provider of education across the Fylde Coast.

We are in an exceptional location on the Lancashire border, not far from the Ribble Valley, Lake District and stunning Fylde coast. The vibrant cities of Manchester and Liverpool are both within easy reach.
