Lecturer in A level History

This is an excellent opportunity to join a growing team of highly committed A level teachers in a positive and supportive environment where staff enjoy a good sense of camaraderie and have high expectations of themselves and their students. The A level team enjoy their own Sixth Form building with base rooms, resources are available and readily shared within the A level team and weekly team meetings ensure clear communications on key issues.

You will be a good team player who is happy to participate in departmental events, well organised and shows good initiative, introducing useful ideas to contribute to the ongoing development of the department.
