We are seeking to recruit an outstanding teacher of Social Sciences to join a successful and innovative team in September 2018. An exciting opportunity has arisen to appoint a qualified teacher of Psychology and/or Health and Social Care and Child Development.
Subjects offered in the Social Science faculty at Tudor Grange Academy Kingshurst include Psychology, Child Development and Health and Social Care, both at Key Stage 4 and post 16. Social Science subjects are highly popular options with our own students as well as attracting many external applications at post 16. The successful candidate will have knowledge of teaching A level and GCSE Psychology and hold relevant knowledge of teaching BTEC Health and Social Care and Child Development.
We are looking for a dedicated and reflective practitioner with excellent organisation and communication skills. You will be able to act as a role model in creating, planning and delivering high quality lessons to facilitate students in making excellent progress. Much time is committed to developing a wide range of teaching and learning strategies to be implemented within the subject, with a focus on a collaborative approach to planning with centralised, shared units of work and resources. The successful candidate will contribute to developing the curriculum at KS4 as well as KS5.
Additionally, you will benefit from:
• teaching in a forward-thinking department with excellent resources and facilities for teachers who love their subject
• working in a multi-academy trust with the potential for opportunities of collaboration and leadership across the four other secondary schools, as well as large scale Trust Insets with opportunities to network and share best practice and share resources across the Tudor Grange family of schools
