An Exciting Opportunity to Join an Outstanding Team!

An exciting opportunity to take your subject knowledge of either sport or law into a new direction, teaching level 3 BTEC Public Services at our outstanding rated college.  Level 3 BTEC Public Services at New College Pontefract is very popular course, covering a diverse range of subjects. Proposed units for 2019 include Government and Protective Services, Citizenship, Fitness Training, Global Current Affairs, introduction to Criminology and Planning and Responding to Emergency Incidents. We are therefore looking for teachers either experienced in teaching public services already, or relevant subjects such as sport and law.  As the Teacher of Public Services, using your subject knowledge you will prepare students for careers within the armed forces, emergency services, Customs and Excise or the Prison Service.

The successful candidate will be able to evidence a proven track record of achieving good or outstanding results, though we also welcome applications from NQTs.  Able to demonstrate a genuine enthusiasm for your subject area and the ability to engage, motivate and inspire students of all abilities, you should have a commitment to raising achievement, raising aspirations and going the extra mile.

New College is an outstanding place to work and study, regularly near the top of UK Sixth Form College results tables and awarded outstanding in all areas by Ofsted in 2014.  With a dynamic, positive and supportive culture for staff and students, we have an enviable reputation for staff career progression and development.  With over 2400 students, New College Pontefract is the founding member of the New Collaborative Learning Trust (NCLT).  New College Pontefract, New College Doncaster and New College Bradford (opening September 2019) work closely together, presenting exciting opportunities for collaboration, support, development and progression.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious candidate to join our dynamic team at the forefront of change and to make a real difference to raising standards of education in the local community.

If you believe that you have the skills and abilities to take on this role, we’d love to hear from you.
