About New College Pontefract

New College Pontefract is an outstanding college, recently receiving Sixth Form College of the year and FE Provider of the year in the TES Awards. Our A level Value Added consistently places us in the top 10% to 15% of providers nationally and our BTEC Value Added places us in the top 10% nationally. The large majority of our A level students proceed to higher education at over 60 different universities, including Oxford and Cambridge. We also provide a small Level 2 provision for GCSE English and Maths resits.

We provide a wide range of extra-curricular and personal development activities, including sports and college production; we want New College Pontefract to be a vibrant community that students and staff will be eager to join.

The college is outward facing and believes strongly in collaboration, being the lead partner in our teaching school, collaborating with over 30 schools and colleges. The teaching school creates opportunities for staff to access a range of CPD, to deliver on CPD events and to support colleagues and departments in other schools/colleges.

Whilst we are unapologetically driven to achieve the best possible outcomes for students, we also operate a very supportive environment in which we give every member of the team the help they need to flourish as an outstanding member of staff. Having been awarded Leaders in Diversity and Investors in People Gold status, we have been recognised for our ongoing dedication to our people management practices, investing in the development and performance of our staff and creating an inclusive environment in which diversity is celebrated. The college is situated next to a large park containing Pontefract Racecourse, and is less than five minutes from the M62, making commuting for staff easy.

As an employer, we strongly believe in recognising and rewarding outstanding performance in all our staff and have an excellent reward and recognition scheme in place. The college has a warm and friendly atmosphere, making it an exciting and enjoyable place to study and work. We have lots of great benefits to offer staff and we always have plenty going on, whether it is our annual well-being day, Christmas party, coffee mornings or social gatherings.

Why not consider joining an outstanding team!
