Part time FTE 0.8 Permanent – Brock Main Site – £15,847 - £28,895 pa

Are you a positive, innovative and enthusiastic individual with a passion for providing high quality teaching to students?

About Us

We are a high-achieving college, attracting around 2,500 sixth form students across the region each year.  We are based within the stunning New Forest National Park and offer our students a huge range of courses with excellent facilities.

The Role

The College is seeking to appoint an inspiring and motivated individual to teach Criminology to level 3 on the Criminology Certificate and Diploma and A Level Psychology.  Criminology is an area of growth in the College where approximately 100 students are taking the WJEC Certificate in Criminology and in addition 80 students will be taking the Diploma next academic year. It has been an extremely popular choice for students in our first year of offering the course.

The Advanced Level Psychology course is also very popular with around 340 students attending at Brock. Psychology is extremely well taught and the student feedback is exceptionally positive.  We have approximately 200 first year Psychology students and 140 second year students taught in 16 classes. We teach the OCR specification and we have an excellent record of success. Our results are consistently above the national averages, including both the high-grades rate and value-added scores. It is expected that the successful candidate would also teach a psychology first year class. Criminology and Psychology courses draw students equally from a range of interests and this is one of the reasons for their popularity.

Student recruitment in both social sciences continues to be strong and this is reflected in the growth of the team. The students are taught by a team of specialists in a department who have a continuous ethos of driving improvements coupled with close support for students.

The post is ideally suited to an enthusiastic and innovative classroom practitioner who is keen to work as part of a dynamic, inclusive and supportive team.  It is essential that the successful applicant be competent in the use of IT – or at least keen to develop such ability. The department’s success comes from very strong team work.

There are currently four full-time and one part-time members of staff in the Criminology and Psychology teams where we have a wealth of expertise including Examiners, authors of published textbooks and contributors to exam board endorsed materials.

The use of IT is fundamental to teaching Criminology where where each class has a majority of their lessons in our dedicated IT room.  The College has good IT and intranet facilities and a well-equipped Learning Resource Centre.  Our social sciences intranet sites are well resourced and utilised by all students.  We use enquiry-based learning with a student-centred approach.  This involves close team work, team teaching and shared resources, whilst giving the individual teacher and student the scope to pursue their own strengths and interests.

Criminology and Psychology together with Sociology, Law, Business, Accounting and Economics make up the Social Sciences and Business Curriculum area at Brock College. The team is friendly and supportive, self-reflective and very focussed on continuous improvement.
