Based in Ashton-under-Lyne, Greater Manchester, Tameside College is a further education college that offers a wide range of courses including Full-Time, Part-Time, Apprenticeships and University Level. We aim to give all our students an exceptional experience.
We believe in excellence and back that up with high standards, real working environments and great teaching. We also believe that attending college is about more than achieving a qualification, important though that is. That is why we aim to give every person the opportunity to develop their full potential in a supportive and friendly environment.
As a Head of English and ESOL, you will support the development of the English & ESOL provision across the College and support the management team in maximising the use of physical resources and utilisation of staff.
Developing and implementing policies and procedures which support the quality improvement of English & ESOL, you will encourage members of the team to deliver appropriate curriculum and ensure the sharing of good practice whilst actively leading on quality compliance and enhancement.
In addition, you will also act as a course coordinator for a group of programmes and plan and deliver teaching/learning programmes using a flexible range of strategies and teaching materials.
Applicants for this role must have recent experience of teaching and leading on a range of programmes up to level 3, of developing and planning programmes and setting and achieving improvement targets. With a relevant degree or equivalent, you must hold a teaching qualification (Cert Ed or PGCE) and have up to date knowledge of current standards.
