In this role you will provide high quality learning, teaching and curriculum development in Education and related programme areas. You will be an excellent communicator and will be able to support and motivate students from a wide range of backgrounds. Demonstrating sound pedagogic practice and creativity you will use a wide range of approaches and learning resources to ensure that students engage fully in their learning experience, motivating good attendance, retention, achievement and progression.
