  • You will have a proven and established track-record in delivering Functional Skills Maths and English, incorporating Entry 1 to Level 2
  • You will be able to work independently both in college and in the workplace, whilst maintaining and developing a collaborative professional relationship with students and colleagues.
  • You will have a flexible and adaptable approach to teaching apprentices whilst understanding the support and guidance they require.
  • You will be passionate about students achieving their potential and be proactive in putting the mechanisms of support in place to make sure we prepare students not only for college life but also for life and work beyond college.
  • You will have excellent communication skills across varying levels of learners and colleagues.
