The Role

Start Date: September 2020

Duration: 1 year Fixed Term

Disclosure Level: Enhanced

Reporting to: Head of Psychology, Senior School

Hours: Part time, 0.3 full time equivalent 

Salary: As per Wellingborough School Teachers’ Pay Scale

The Psychology Department enjoys large A level numbers and several pupils each year go onto study Psychology at highly selective universities.  

The post would suit a well-qualified applicant who is a new or relatively new entrant to the profession, who is keen to develop within this vibrant department or an experienced teacher who is keen to gain experience teaching A Level Psychology. 

Psychology at Wellingborough School

Psychology is taught In the Sixth Form, (Edexcel) where pupils are expected to follow 3 subjects as the norm.  More able students may follow 4 subjects if it is felt this will not compromise quality. Typically, there are two Psychology groups in each of the Lower and Upper Sixth and Psychology is a popular option. The School has an expanding programme offering the Extended Project Qualification which could be used to extend the subject knowledge of an individual pupil with particular interest in this area.

Due to the growing numbers of pupils selecting Psychology, there is a need for an additional teacher to work alongside the Head of Department. All pupils have access to resources which can be used to give variety to lessons. The classrooms in the School each have a networked PC and a ceiling mounted projector.  

The post advertised would require 0.3 full time equivalent for Psychology although this could be enhanced by a timetabled contribution to the Games or Enrichment programme.

At times, it may be necessary to work beyond your normal hours in order to meet deadlines.  Where this is necessary, any additional hours will be agreed with the HoD.
