At Kirklees College we are always looking for new talent, and welcome applications from all sectors.

Whether in a teaching & learning role or in one of our specialised Business Support functions, you’ll be involved in nurturing and developing the next generation of construction workers, engineers, health workers and countless others.

We’re already a successful college, but we’re continually striving to be better and do better - be part of our story!

In the role of Curriculum Area Manager (CAM) in Science your focus will be leading the curriculum area in delivering an overall student experience that promotes the College values of Kindness, Unity and Excellence.

Your key responsibilities will be driving excellence in teaching and assessment, motivating staff to ensure continuous improvement and contributing to the delivery of College strategic goals.

It’s important that you’re able to communicate easily with a wide range of stakeholders, engage with young people and demonstrate commitment to your own professional and personal development. The science area has a thriving Study Programme, Access, Adult and Apprenticeship so experience of each of these funding streams would be advantageous.

Due to the nature of our work, it’s essential you’re committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults.
