The Social Science Department at Salesian

The Social Science Department at Salesian is a dynamic and progressive department which has learning and teaching at the heart of everything it does, this is evidenced by the number of students who go on to study Social Science subjects at university. The Social Science department offers a range of subjects including Sociology, Psychology, Health and Social Care and the introduction of the new T Level in Childcare and Education in September 2021.

We are exceptionally proud of our results:

• 72% A*-B at A2 Sociology

• 69% A*-B at A2 Psychology

• 100% D*-M at BTEC Health and Social Care

We are seeking to appoint a specialist in Sociology and/or Health and Social Care who may also be willing to be involved in the delivery of our new T Level in Childcare and Education.  The successful candidate will bring with them passion for their subject area and an ability to engage with students to develop our successful and growing department.  A Level Sociology follows the AQA examination board specification, and we would normally expect to have four classes across year 12 and 13.  Health and Social care follows the Edexcel BTEC Level 3 specification.

We are passionate about constantly evaluating and improving our pedagogy and consider ourselves a department that can deliver exciting lessons against a background of topical new events that bring subject(s) to life.  We also run various extra-curricular activities including annual visits for A Level students to conferences such as Behind Bar, Sociology in Action and the Zimbardo Psychology lectures.  Health and Social Care students have also taken First Aid courses and volunteered in local Health and Social Care Facilities.

The school plays a lead role in the Teach South East SCITT and we therefore have opportunities for colleagues at all stages of their career development from NQTs to those seeking positions of responsibility such as mentoring, training, and developing others.

We are extremely proud of our department at Salesian and look forward greatly to welcoming a colleague who is passionate about the progression of our students both academically and spiritually, as we are.

Head of Social Science
