Contract: Lecturer, full time, permanent

We have an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and innovative lecturer to join the Foundation Learning Faculty at a time of rapid change and improvement.

If you are an expert in your field with excellent, proven classroom behaviour management and are passionate about teaching, we have the following opportunity

· Level 1 introductory Vocational studies with our 16 – 18 year- old learners

· Entry 3 Vocational Studies for our 16 – 18 year- old learners

The successful candidate will have the passion to create outstanding learning opportunities for those learners who have not yet achieved their GCSEs at grade 4.

You will need to be able to motivate hard to reach learners who struggle with mainstream education and have complex backgrounds. This can include learners who struggle with mental health issues and anxiety, as well as the impact of criminal behaviour.

Each learner can progress and reach their goals, and the successful candidate will play a pivotal role in helping them to achieve these. The candidate will need to respond to a diverse group of learners and provide opportunities to learn outside of the classroom through physical activity and outdoor experiences as well as within a classroom setting.

You will have excellent communication skills, empathy, understanding and the ability to inspire and engage young people with sometimes complex backgrounds to excel and achieve their learning goals.

The role will also include pastoral support, progress monitoring and report writing. The successful candidate will need to demonstrate that they can use new learning technologies and will continue to update their skills through CPD.

The successful candidate will respond to Teaching, Learning and Assessment strategies and findings and strive to ensure that these constantly improve.

Ideally you will hold a teaching qualification, however if you are new to teaching, we are able to support your professional development to achieve this.

The post will be shortlisted against the essential and desirable criteria at application stage from the person specification. Please ensure that you have a look at this specification attached to the Role Profile and complete your application directly from this, as these specifications are an integral part of the selection process.

For further details on this post which the job description and person specification cannot answer for you, please contact Yvonne Walker, Faculty Area Manager by email at

Interviews/assessments are planned for 22 June 2023
