About the role

We are looking for a well-qualified, passionate and innovative teacher to join our highly successful and experienced Humanities department. We are particularly looking for a teacher who is committed to inspiring young people with a love for and a confidence in their subject, who are open to adopting a range of creative pedagogical approaches.

Initially, this will be a fixed term part-time role for the first term of the academic year, but there is potential for this to extend and to grow into a full-time permanent position.

The post is suitable for experienced teachers or Early Career Teachers.

Dependent on teaching experience to date, the posts will be paid from £30,500 to £47,133, rising incrementally, subject to satisfactory annual review. Full-time teachers teach a maximum of 20 x 65min teaching periods in the college week. It is envisaged that this post will start on 8 periods of teaching (40%), but could increase to 60% or even to full-time depending on need.

For Early Career Teachers, there would be an appropriate additional amount of remission built into the timetable allocation for the first year of teaching to support the gaining of QTS or QTLS status. All new members of the department are supported by the Head of Department who provides ongoing support and advice. For ECTs, this support would include induction into post-16 education. Additionally, there is a comprehensive induction programme for all new staff organised by Human Resources.
