Hours: Part time 0.4 (with potential for more hours if also able to teach A Level Sociology)

Contract: Permanent

Required from: September 2021

Brighton Girls offers an exciting part time opportunity to teach A Level Psychology to confident, passionate and kind girls determined to achieve the highest standards. You will be joining a dynamic, creative and friendly environment where a tailored and individual teaching style is encouraged.

As Teacher of Psychology, you will share your expertise and enthusiasm of the subject, offering support to the learning of individual students and contributing to the school’s pastoral system. The role is available on a part time basis, however, for the right candidate there may be the possibility for more hours as we look to introduce A Level Sociology in the future although this is not an essential requirement.

Applications are welcomed from recent graduates, experienced teachers (either within the profession or looking to return), FE or HE lecturers or industry professionals able to demonstrate a strong aptitude for teaching Psychology at A Level (a willingness to gain Qualified Teaching Status, if not already gained, is essential).
