The Faculty listens to its learners and we have positive learner feedback. You will be joining an experienced, supportive team with a strong commitment to sharing ideas and resources. You will also benefit from support within the Faculty including a mentor, Tutorial Lead and Curriculum Area Manager as well as working with an Advanced Teaching Practitioner.
