  • Are you ready to join a growing team of enthusiastic educators in a thriving community setting?

If so, we want to hear from you!

Morley College’s North Kensington Centre is about to undergo a large-scale refurbishment and will emerge as a state-of-the-art, community focused learning hub. We are looking for an enthusiastic, innovative and pro-active subject leader who can help to shape our curriculum offer in the area of Music, Art and Design. An individual who is forward thinking and progressive in their approach to education and its possibilities for all.

Your role will be to grow our existing provision in a wide reaching and established Access programme whilst developing opportunities for study in a broad range of courses. This will include 16-18 study programmes, full-time adult provision, higher education and part-time courses. In addition, you will oversee existing programmes and staff. Teaching experience in Music, and/or Art and Design is preferred but not a requirement.

In addition, you should be an outstanding practitioner of teaching, learning and assessment with the ability to support others to develop their own professional skills.

Morley College London aims to have a workforce that is as reflective of the diverse population that it serves. The College particularly encourages applications from ethnic minorities and disabled people who are currently under-represented within the College at this level.
