BTEC Health and Social Care, A Level Psychology and Sociology have encountered significant growth in terms of student numbers and are popular subject choices for young people on the Fylde Coast. All three subjects have achieved outstanding outcomes for our students and have worked hard to develop excellent links with a vast range of universities and local employers to support students future progression. 

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. 

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, also knowledge of the new (linearised) A Level Psychology and/or Sociology would be beneficial. 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 cooperative 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.
