Part Time Teacher of English as an Additional Language

Rochester Independent CollegeRochester

Rochester Independent College is seeking to appoint a part time teacher of English as an Additional Language initially on a two term contract from January 2022, but with the possibility of it leading to a permanent contract in September 2022.

With over 30 students receiving specialist EAL support across the College, this is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and suitably qualified individual to make a significant difference to the learning opportunities and personal development of a number of largely overseas students, the majority of whom are in the Sixth Form and are College boarders. Highly experienced applicants are welcome, but the successful candidate will be committed to supporting the needs of EAL students in one-to-one and small group tuition sessions while working alongside their subject tutors to ensure that academic progress is sustained. Contribution to the wider life of the College will also be welcome.

We are looking to offer 0.8 contract. The role is an enriching and rewarding one and will see you contribute fully to the work of a small team dedicated to the welfare of the College’s EAL students.

Rochester Independent College was founded as a sixth form college in 1984 and offers a fresh alternative to traditional independent education. There is no uniform and students and teachers are on first name terms. Today, Rochester Independent College (RIC) has over 320 students from the age of 11 and offers places for boarders from the age of 15.

Classes are small. On average there are 8 students in each group. As well as a full secondary education from year 7 to sixth form, the College specialises in intensive one year A level and GCSE courses. We also have a good track record of excellent results on retake A level and GCSE courses for students aiming at competitive university courses including Medicine, Law, Veterinary Science and Dentistry.

Rochester Independent College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service.

Being You @ RIC:  Our students come from a diverse range of backgrounds and cultures and so do we. We want our staff to find a home at RIC and aim to give them the freedom to be themselves at work. We want our community to be an inclusive one where there are meaningful levels of representation across all parts of the College. A commitment to inclusivity is at the heart of RIC’s Project 2025 development planning. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment at RIC.
