The Role

The College requires an inspiring and enthusiastic member of staff to teach GCSE Biology and BTEC Applied Science as part of a maternity cover. We are looking for a part-time member of staff (approx 0.5FTE to 0.75FTE over 3-4 days) with a passion for science to provide continuity for students in our successful and growing College.

Applications from NQTs and Teachers in Schools and Sixth Form College sectors are welcome. A full mentoring programme is organised to introduce all new staff to sixth form college systems and procedures and to support and encourage professional development. We are looking for an exceptional candidate. We expect high performance from all our staff, and are looking for an impressive individual to inspire College students.

The Department

The Science Department consists of thirteen members of staff, including teachers and technicians. The college has eight teaching labs and two dedicated preparation areas in a modern, dedicated building which opened in Spring 2016. The college has approximately 800 student enrolments in A Level courses in Biology, Chemistry, and Physics as well as BTEC Level 3 qualifications in Applied Science, and Engineering and GCSE Biology.

The Science department is a friendly and successful team, with a passion for developing and sharing evidence-based approaches to teaching and learning. We help our students achieve outstanding results across the sciences by providing stimulating teaching and personalised support.

The department actively encourages students to pursue their interests in science outside of college. Many of our students participate in national science competitions and make use of extra-curricular opportunities to learn about employment in the scientific sector. We aim to maximise students’ achievements and aspirations through stimulating teaching and personal support.
