Bilborough College Nottingham
Language Assistant – French - Part-time, 6 hours/week Term Time Only
Fixed Term from 1 September 2017 – 31 May 2018
£439.50 per month
Speaking languages is a key part of the examination process and so the role of the Language Assistant is vital to the students’ development and progress.
The salary for this position will be £439.50 per month, based on 6 hours per week, term time only. These hours are likely to be spread across 2 days to allow students more flexibility with their timetables, especially in the run up to exams. The days and times of your working hours will be as agreed with your manager, in line with the department needs. Flexibility will therefore be required.
The Language and Humanities Faculty is managed by the Head of Faculty, along with Course Leaders who have responsibility for individual curriculum areas.
The teaching of Modern Languages is supported by a wealth of high quality resource material and the department works closely as a team. The subjects are currently delivered in a suite of teaching rooms with networked PC access and electronic whiteboard facilities in every room. There is a well-equipped language laboratory which is used by all students weekly.
Should you be successful at the shortlisting stage you will be invited to interview on Monday 3rd July 2017 and we would aim to contact you by the end of Tuesday 27th June. Part of the interview process will involve you engaging 4-5 students of A Level French in a 10-15 minute speaking session on a topic of your choice related to French Youth Culture. You will be expected to deliver this in the target language and encourage students to speak in French during the session.

We particularly welcome applications from black and minority ethnic candidates as they are under-represented within our staff.
