We are looking for a highly motivated Teacher of Humanities who wants to make a difference to the education and learning experiences of our students.
We would welcome applications from both experienced and newly qualified teachers. If you have excellent organisational skills and the capacity to work with others to raise achievement through motivating and inspiring students, then we would like to hear from you.
We are looking for a well-qualified and enthusiastic specialist to teach across both Key Stage 3 and 4. There is the opportunity for suitably qualified and experienced individuals to teach at A Level.

You must be able to plan engaging lessons and work collaboratively alongside a talented and hardworking staff who are committed to providing outstanding opportunities for our students.
While mid Powys is a great place to work, it is also a truly great place to live with friendly, close knit communities and a stunning natural environment. Work life balance here is easy to achieve and we have so much to offer our local population. We have a wide range of sporting, cultural and arts opportunities for all ages. Golf, fishing, walking, cycling, mountain biking, theatres, cinema, the Hay Festival and the Royal Welsh show are all on the doorstep and a wide range of clubs and groups exist to appeal to different ages and interests. Just a little further away are the bright lights of Cardiff, Hereford, Aberystwyth and Swansea and the area is served by the scenic Mid Wales Line and bus links to help provide easy access.
Mid Powys is well known as a very safe and desirable place to live with low crime rates, affordable housing, beautiful scenery and friendly, active communities - even your car insurance will be lower than most parts of the UK. Mid Wales really does have it all. It was voted as the happiest place to live in Wales in a 2017 survey.
