The post of Teacher of Children’s Play, Learning and Development (Early Years) is a unique opportunity for an exceptional teacher to join our College. If you are aspirational for all young people and want to play a part in shaping their futures, we would really like to hear from you.
We are seeking to appoint a well-qualified, committed and inspirational teacher to teach a range of Childcare BTEC courses. The successful candidate will have an appropriate teaching qualification and be qualified to degree level.
As well as for teachers of post-16 education, this post would also be an excellent opportunity for a serving practitioner in an Early Years setting, such as a nursery or primary school, who would enjoy working with older students to train them as future professionals. We do not expect all applicants for the job to be experienced or qualified in post-16 teaching.
In 2017, Joseph Chamberlain College achieved A level pass rates of 99% for the fourth year running. In our last inspection in 2014 we were graded as ‘good’ overall and ‘outstanding’ for the effectiveness of leadership and management. Since then, we have continued to provide a broad, inclusive and high quality education to all of our learners that results in some of the highest levels of progression to Higher Education in the sector.
The College is situated within easy reach of Birmingham city centre in a state of the art building with superbly equipped classrooms and outstanding facilities. We were featured in the 2015 Parliamentary Review for best practice in further education and were awarded the CPD Mark last year for our comprehensive package of innovative and high impact professional development. We support all newly qualified teachers to achieve QTS or QTLS, and are part of a local teaching alliance. We have also been short listed for the 2017 TES Sixth Form College of the Year Awards.
