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 MGL you’ll predominantly be based at Huddersfield and your focus will be on delivering bespoke and personalised programmes to students with SEND.

Your key responsibilities will be to:

• Contribute to curriculum development, design and delivery in response to changing requirements and new demands.

• Maintaining and monitoring college systems

Ideally, you’ll have PGCSE with a specialism in SEND and demonstrable experience in teaching young people with SEND. It’s important that you’re able to communicate effectively and engage with young people with a wide range of learning needs and demonstrate our College values of Kindness, Unity and Excellence in your role.

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. We believe learning is not just for our students: it’s an important part of working here too. Staff development opportunities include a mentoring scheme, financial contributions for external qualifications and skills development for current and aspiring managers. You’ll also have access to a range of staff benefits including an employee assistance programme, retail and leisure discounts and reduced Metro travel. We want people who believe in the value of education, and who can contribute to our culture of supporting and challenging one another.
