We are looking to increase our ‘bank’ of part-time lecturers with foundations studies experience for the new academic year. The Foundation department offers a wide ranging curriculum to students who experience barriers to learning. Experience of teaching within one of the following areas is essential:

Access Inclusive Learning (AIL) - AIL offers a unique curriculum for students who have SLD and focuses on the individual student; the timetable, target setting, review procedures and transition are person centred. At the end of the first year a Progression Pathway for each student is determined; this takes into account their individual aspirations.

Access Skills Development (ASD) - A unique course for students on the Autistic Spectrum. Some students use this course as the first step into College. Students who may be anxious of new places and people are able to be gradually introduced into a learning environment. ASD is based on the key communication models of TEACHH, PECS and Makaton.  We offer a broad, integrated curriculum incorporating Basic Skills (literacy and numeracy), ICT, Art, Music, Dance, Sensory Learning and Life Skills.

Access to Community and Education (ACE) - Access to Community and Education is a specialist learning programme designed to meet the educational needs of students with PMLD and SLD streamed via two pathways. ACE adopts a Multi-Sensory Curriculum adhering to the principles of Sensology. The timetable denotes its sensory focus integrating a plethora of Sense specific sessions.  ACE tutors incorporate a range of techniques to ensure that the learning style of every student is met, these include: TACPAC, Intensive interaction, Body mapping, tactile signing, TEACHH, PECS, Makaton.

Applicants should be well qualified with an appropriate teaching qualification and have the energy and enthusiasm needed to contribute to the team as part of an outstanding College.
