The Leisure and Public Services Faculty is seeking to appoint a Curriculum Leader in Public Services.

You will lead a team to provide high quality teaching, learning and assessment, and contribute to our strategy of creating and maintaining a culture of excellence in the faculty area. You will be able to support and lead your team in planning and delivering outstanding lessons in a variety of learning environments. A highly engaged, positive and inspirational leader, you will also have a genuine desire to improve the life chances of learners.

You will work with the Faculty Manager, the HE Curriculum Leader and your team to develop and deliver a dynamic study programme that encapsulates a broad range of industry topics and effectively prepares young people for their future careers. You will also develop and implement strategies to improve learner attendance, retention and achievement. You will be responsible for the day-to-day management of your curriculum area and, occasionally, may stand in for the Faculty Manager if required. This role is a great opportunity for those seeking to use their existing management and teaching skills to benefit the lives of young people.

You will be highly motivated and able to build positive relationships. You will be committed to continual professional development. Your planning, organisation skills and attention to detail will be excellent. As your duties will include delivering high quality teaching, learning and assessment, you will hold a Level 5 teaching qualification (DET/PGCE) and a minimum Level 3 industry qualification and/or exceptional experience in a public services area. Ideally, you will hold an assessor qualification, or be willing to work towards it.

The College offers many good employment benefits including 37 days holiday entitlement plus Christmas close down (or additional payment for hourly employees), access to the Teachers Pension scheme, and many on-site benefits and facilities, including a gym and on-site nursery. This position will be based at our Peterborough Park Crescent site.
