Would you relish the opportunity to teach students the subjects of Criminology and Psychology within a college setting?

At Cirencester College, you would have the opportunity of teaching enthusiastic learners about the disciplines of criminology and psychology.

Our level 3 criminology course dives deep into the criminal world, journeying through an analysis of criminal acts, the legal implications of crime, and preventative measures. Our psychology A level on the other hand takes students into the minds of criminals, businesses, athletes, children amongst other populations; exploring the reasons for their behaviours.

If you have a background in the sector or previous experience teaching in associated subjects like sociology or psychology, then you would be well-suited to teaching criminology too. You would teach surrounded by a committed and supportive team who will readily share resources and best practices, and offer support whenever required. Within this environment we would help you further develop as a practitioner, as you in turn develop your students.
