The College has recently merged with the local Southport FE College which lies approximately 2 miles away in the town centre. The merger is an exciting prospect for the College and is seen as an opportunity for both Colleges’ to expand and grow, both in student numbers and in the breadth of curriculum offered. The merger will provide a substantial provision to suit the needs of all learners in Southport and its surrounding areas. The vision is that the two sites will maintain their individual identity, Southport College will remain focused on Vocational, Apprenticeships and HE, whilst KGV will provide the A Level provision.
At KGV we offer AQA A level Sociology and Psychology and BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma Health & Social Care to advanced level students. We are seeking to appoint a well-qualified, highly motivated, and innovative lecturer committed to enhancing our students’ achievement and experience in Social Sciences at King George V College. The successful candidate will play a full role in sustaining and building on the high achievement of A level and BTEC Level 3 Social Sciences at KGV. You will ideally have a good honours degree (or equivalent) and teaching qualification, have experience of teaching students of 16-19 years at Level 3, and be committed to our students, your subject and the teaching profession. We are, however, willing to consider candidates with other relevant qualifications and experience in education.
Both Sociology and Psychology are popular and demanding subjects for students, who can expect a high level of challenge in a subject that develops them for work or university life. It is an area which we wish to continue to grow and develop and we are looking for a teacher with the knowledge, passion and drive to take it forward.
The successful applicant will be dynamic, innovative and enthusiastic and will bring a fresh approach to teaching and learning that will revitalise the experience for all students.
This is an opportunity for you to make your mark and ensure excellent teaching and learning, helping us realise our potential to be the outstanding College of the future.
