Psychology & Sociology Teacher - BARKING & DAGENHAM

An ever improving Secondary school situated in the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham is seeking to appoint a full time teacher of Psychology & Sociology immediately after the half term break in February 2018. The position is to cover maternity leave for one year with the potential to stay on permanently as the school is looking to expand its Social Sciences department.

Are you a teacher committed to seeking out new challenges in a school that adheres to the traditional values of uniform, discipline and respect?

Are you open to covering maternity leave for three terms with the potential for the position to become permanent?

The role includes delivering Psychology and Sociology to Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5.

The Psychology department is committed to making the subject fully interactive in order to facilitate the development of understanding and for all students to acquire as much knowledge as possible.

Within Sociology, the department strives to focus students' minds on the unparalleled changes that constantly occur in the world as well as the ever changing patterns of relationships amongst all people within society. Sociology is a subject that each and every student can relate to, perhaps more than any other, as they can engage with the subject immediately.

This is a school that recognises the importance of delivering an education that meets the requirements of every student whilst ensuring that they are also fully supported as a unique individual, a member of a team and as a future employee.

The aforementioned support includes each pupil becoming fully involved in their learning in an environment that sees them flourish as they enter their formative years of adulthood. One of the school's long term goals is that every student, when the time comes, is offered the opportunity to study at the University of their choice.

The school is extremely proud of the strides it has made in relation to improved exam results over the past three years and this has been the result of a renewed commitment to teamwork throughout the school as it was realised that without doing so would ultimately create less opportunities for the students.

The school is served by excellent transport links, including railway stations and a variety of local bus routes.

Applicants will need to hold QTS or be suitably qualified to be able to teach in schools in the UK as well as possessing effective classroom management strategies.

Should you wish to apply or would like more information, please contact Rob Davies at Randstad Education.
