Do you want to begin a truly rewarding career and make a real difference by training a new generation? Then this is the career for you!
Kirklees College is one of the biggest colleges in the country and we offer a vast range of courses and study options for applicants to choose from. Based in the heart of Yorkshire we have multiple learning centres across Kirklees, serving the local population, communities and businesses.
Nationally there is a challenge to improve young people’s numeracy and literacy skills. Considering recent changes to the funding methodology, this is also a challenge for the Further Education colleges. All students who have not received a grade A to C in maths and English when leaving school now have to continue to study alongside their vocational qualification.
This is an exciting opportunity for a bright, committed and innovative individual who has the ability to work with both mature and 16-19 year old learners as part of a large, dynamic and successful team within a well-established Further Education college.
The purpose of this rewarding role is to make a significant contribution to the effective delivery of the curriculum, in line with the College’s Quality Improvement Strategy and to ensure a high quality and relevant learning experience for all students on the courses.
The main responsibilities of the role will be to teach English related subjects at any of the College centres and to develop programmes of study to meet the particular needs of client groups served by the College. The successful candidate will also be required to assess students in accordance with the requirements of the programme and to contribute to systems of quality and advice and assist in the effective organisation of the department by the proper establishment of such syllabuses, schemes of work and records as may be necessary from time to time.
The qualifications deemed essential for the post are:
- A relevant up to date qualification in subject area at Level 3 or above in English or a related subject.
- Minimum of Level 2 qualification in literacy and numeracy (e.g. GCSE English and Maths at grade A*-C).
- A level 5 teaching qualification.
As a learning organisation and as part of our commitment to your continued professional development we may require you to complete an apprenticeship standard or framework that relates to this opportunity. The ability to converse at ease with members of the public and provide advice in accurate spoken English is also essential for the post.
Kirklees College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. As a College we are committed to Equality and Diversity Inclusion and welcome applications from all sections of the community.
