Lecturer in Psychology and Criminology (Maternity Cover)
Required from March 30th 2020
Salary range 1-12: £23,488-£37,370
(Starting salary dependent upon qualifications and experience)
Not only can we offer the chance to teach successful, intelligent and ambitious students across a range of courses including psychology and criminology, but we can do so in the beautiful Cotswold setting of Cirencester. The department itself is a vibrant, supportive and forward-thinking team; the teaching staff work together closely and have a genuine passion for the subject. We are seeking adaptable and creative individuals to join our high achieving team and contribute to curriculum initiatives. Candidates should also expect to act as a personal tutor.
Most of your teaching timetable will involve A-Level psychology; a great opportunity whether you are experienced, new to the profession or want to make the switch from an 11-16 school.
Candidates should have a commitment to further education and be motivated to achieve high standards in teaching and learning. The ability to work well within teams and to adapt to curriculum demands is essential. Ideally candidates should possess a good honours degree in a relevant subject and a teaching qualification. It would be advantageous to have had experience teaching (or willingness to) teach a second subject, such as law or psychology.
The College is very supportive of new entrants into the teaching profession and we are therefore willing to consider applications from graduates who are willing to undertake a supported PGDE as part of their professional development.
