SGS Sixth Form has an excellent reputation for delivering high-quality teaching, learning and assessment. We pride ourselves on ensuring that all students receive a well-rounded, holistic education that ensures they can progress onto their next stage of learning, whether that be university, an apprenticeship, or the world of work. Our Humanities Department is growing year on year and we have nearly 500 enrolments across a range of subjects including Sociology, Criminology, Psychology, History, Geography and Philosophy.

We are looking for someone who has expertise in delivering A-Level Sociology but due to growth in learner numbers, could potentially contribute to other subjects including WJEC Criminology and AQA Psychology; the successful candidate will join a well-established team of professionals, many of whom have worked for the college for five years or more. Ideally, you should have several years experience of teaching AQA Sociology at AS and A2 and experience of external examining is a significant benefit, as is being a course team leader.

At SGS Sixth, we fully embrace holistic study programmes, and the successful candidate will also be asked to deliver a subject related enrichment programme and contribute to our highly successful tutorial programme. We want our students to be well-rounded, confident, articulate individuals who value skills as much as qualifications. Applicants for the above post will be joining a successful department with achievement rates in the top 10% of all colleges in the UK. The successful candidate will have an excellent track record in teaching and demonstrate commitment to achieving the best for each student to maintain the high standards within the department.

The post requires at least a degree level qualification in a related field, and candidates should hold, or be willing to work towards, a PGCE or qualified teacher status.
