We are one of the top-performing colleges in the country, situated in the cosmopolitan seaside city of Brighton & Hove. Working here offers the combination of both a wonderful place to work and a great city in which to live. Our students and staff are colourful, aspirational and hard-working – which is perhaps why 94% of employees would “recommend BHASVIC as a good place to work” and many of our students go on to Higher Education.

We are seeking to appoint someone to provide excellent Additional Learning Support teaching and learning for students with SEN and disabilities from across a range of A level, BTEC level 3 and GCSE Maths or English re-sit groups.

Fundamental to the ethos of the Additional Learning Support Department is a respect for the student as an emerging adult. We want to work ¬with the student to empower them to develop the strategies and skills needed for successful completion of their chosen courses, as well as taking a full place in the life of the College. We are working towards enhancing self-confidence and self-esteem to ensure that students have the necessary skills to achieve independence and their future aspirations.

You will join an enthusiastic team of teachers and learning support assistants. The main focus of the position will be to support students studying A levels and BTECS across a range of subjects. You will be required to work collaboratively with your colleagues in the ALS department and curriculum areas to ensure that students receive appropriate support and guidance.   

As a college, we are ambitious for our students and we are seeking to appoint staff who can bring the right blend of flexibility, commitment, energy and vision. We welcome applications from teachers with ideas, enthusiasm and strong teaching ability, who can work within the diverse demands of the department whilst maintaining its recognised strengths and attributes.

Join us and you can expect competitive pay and an excellent pension scheme, family-friendly working and a collaborative culture where ideas take flight together. Our Cycle to Work scheme, free counselling and occupational health service, discounted gym memberships and staff wellbeing events will keep you sharp, whilst our tailored induction programme and investment in your professional development – along with the possibility of funding for additional qualifications and to even take a sabbatical – will ensure an exciting future.

The current full-time salary range for qualified teachers is £24,098 to £39,329 per annum (depending upon experience).
