The Post

The College is seeking to appoint a dynamic, enthusiastic and hardworking teacher to join the highly successful Chemistry and Applied Science Departments on a maternity cover basis. The successful applicant will be required to teach Chemistry A Level. However, the ability to offer BTEC Level 3 Human Biology would be an advantage.

The part or full-time, maternity cover post is available from 1 September 2019. The College will guarantee teacher employment until 3 July 2020.

Our ideal person will be able to demonstrate a track record of success in delivering the highest standards and achieving outstanding results. The post holder must be confident in the use of Information Technology in all aspects of their work.

The Department also has access to an experienced team of Technicians who provide support across all of the science subjects.
