Teacher of Social Science / Humanities

Teacher of Social Science / Humanities


September 2022

Full Time or Flexible Working Options available

Fixed Term

The Elizabethan Academy is a successful 11-19 stand-alone academy. Students and staff benefit from excellent facilities in our modern and purpose built school. We are looking to recruit a Teacher of Social Sciences within our Humanities faculty to share our commitment and determination to providing a learning environment that enables all young people to thrive. We have all-encompassing professional development opportunities with a structured path to enable career progression. This includes secondments at other schools in the East Midlands and staff coaching.

We are also a "Brilliant School" and are working towards the Wellbeing Award for Schools.

This post could suit an NQT as well as a more experienced applicant. This post will initially be recruited for a fixed term of 1 year.

The successful candidate will join a hardworking, forward thinking and supportive department at an exciting time. We are seeking a candidate with a passion for delivering psychology, sociology and criminology as student interest in these areas continues to increase.

The Academy also has an off-site alternate provision centre at the beautiful Idle Valley Nature reserve which could provide the successful candidate with an exciting opportunity to be involved in something different.

Our ideal candidate will:

  • be passionate about teaching humanities, specialising in Social Sciences, and committed to achieving excellent results for their students. An ability to teach Geography would be an advantage but is not essential.
  • demonstrate high levels of ambition and optimism regarding what the academy and its students can achieve
  • have the resolve to make a real difference to the lives of pupils
  • be committed to the Academy’s ethos of high expectations with no excuses
  • be flexible in their ability to teach across social science and humanities

The Academy is committed to equality of experience for all staff and students.  We operate safer recruitment, robust child protection procedures and require evidence of DBS clearance for all employees. Checks will also be made with previous employers. 

Please apply by submitting your completed application form to our HR Manager, Helen Upson. You can also contact Helen with any queries or for application assistance on 01777 713705 or email  

Visits to our Academy are warmly welcomed by appointment.
