TEACHERS OF GEOGRAPHY

 Post 1: Fixed term (Maternity Cover), Full time

To start 1 September 2021 to March 2022 (or return of the current post holder if earlier)

 Post 2: Permanent, Part time (with an FTE of 0.6087, equivalent to teaching 14 hours per week)

To start 1 September 2021

We are seeking to appoint enthusiastic, experienced and well organised teachers to contribute to the teaching of Geography at A Level.

The BHASVIC Corporation has adopted the conditions of service and salary scales applicable to sixth form colleges. The current full-time salary range for qualified teachers is £25,260 to £41,226 per annum (depending upon experience).

The Humanities department offers well established courses in Geography, Modern History, Early Modern History, Classical Civilisation and History of Art.  We are well resourced, occupying a suite of rooms for the majority of our teaching, with an extensive departmental library and an expanding range of online resources accessible through the college VLE and Microsoft Teams.

Geography is a proven and popular subject at BHASVIC with over 300 students currently following the EdExcel specification for the new Linear A Level. The course currently focuses on Coasts, Globalisation, Tectonics and Regenerating Places in the first year. Second year students undertake the NEA Independent Study, and look at Migration, Identity and Sovereignty, Water and Water Insecurity, Carbon and Energy security and Superpowers. There are currently one full-time and three part-time members of staff teaching on the course. 

Geography has a long tradition of strong exam results and high levels of retention. We are committed to inclusive learning. All groups are mixed ability, some taught by a single teacher and others shared between two teachers. We are keen to extend our existing departmental strategies concerning formative assessment, flipped and active learning, and differentiation. There is a strong team ethos and much planning and resourcing is carried out collectively. Above all we aim to engender enthusiasm for the study of the world, both in its own right and in its contribution to the development of motivated, reflective and independent-minded young people

The department has a strong ethos for encouraging student enthusiasm.  A wide variety of trips and lectures after college are normally offered to students.  It is expected that the new members of the team will continue to develop the provision on offer, and work with us to adapt our provision to these unusual times.

Please clearly state in your covering letter which post(s) you are applying for.

The deadline for receipt of applications is 9am on Thursday 13 May 2021

Interviews will take place on Thursday 27 May 2021

For applicants who are invited to interview there will be ample opportunity to learn more about our provision and needs through discussions with staff. 

BHASVIC is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, committed and skilful teacher of Sociology. The successful candidate will have excellent subject knowledge and a passion for inspiring students of all abilities to exceed expectations.  A willingness to contribute to the teaching of Health and Social Care would be welcome but is not essential.

As a College we are ambitious for our students and we seek to appoint staff who can bring the right blend of flexibility, commitment, energy and vision. We welcome applications from enthusiastic and versatile teachers at any stage in their career.

In addition, a small number of second year students work towards AS Sociology in a dedicated group.

As well as teaching the above courses, members of staff promote enrichment trips to conferences, universities, museums and prisons, and hope to restart this provision as soon as COVID restrictions allow. Students are expected to work independently on activities such as reading, research and note making and also to actively engage in group activities. Students are assessed regularly and are supported to set targets to ensure that they achieve their potential.

The team works closely together and teachers support each other both informally and through regular meetings.
