We are not just looking for someone who will be a good Health and Social Care teacher, but for someone who can act as a role model to students and who ensures that they leave us with their desired academic qualification as well developing their individual potential as people and preparing them for their next steps.
This can be full or part time, please note on your application form your preference and working hours, if part time.

What do you need to be successful in this role?
Successful candidates will have an appropriate professional qualification or experience. Whilst we would prefer applications from qualified teachers who hold a PGCE or equivalent teaching qualification, we would consider applications from unqualified applicants, with the ability to inspire our learners and a willingness to complete a teaching qualification. Unqualified candidates would start at a lower salary point and this could be discussed at interview, if successfully shortlisted.
In addition, you will need to have a flexible approach, coupled with excellent organisational and interpersonal skills. You will have an open mind-set and attitude towards technology and virtual learning tools. Along with current Maths and English skills, you will also demonstrate the ability to engage and develop students and role model the attributes that we develop within our learners.
