The College requires a sessional Teacher of ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) to teach adults two evenings per week, and to assist with student assessments and cover work throughout the year. We are looking for a teacher with a passion for ESOL to join this friendly department in our successful and growing college. Please note that teaching hours are subject to successful enrolment numbers which will be confirmed in early September 2018.

A full mentoring programme is organised to introduce all new staff to sixth form college systems and procedures and to support and encourage professional development. We are looking for an exceptional candidate.
We are looking for an exceptional candidate. We expect high performance from all our staff, and are looking for an impressive individual to inspire College students. Candidates should demonstrate their ability and suitability to both the role and the culture of the College.
The Essential Skills department delivers ESOL courses for adults from lower Entry 1 to Level 2 both in the day and evening; these are held mainly in a community centre in the town centre but also at the main college. Students enrol at the beginning of each 15-week semester and work towards a reading, writing, or speaking & listening exam at the end. Most take ESB Skills for Life qualifications, but there is also a small EFL provision preparing students for FCE examinations.
Students come from a wide variety of backgrounds; most have come to settle in this country, and need English to function at work and in the local community. There is a growing number of Syrian refugees. We also have two classes of sixth form students who study ESOL as part of a wider programme.
Salary: £25.50 per hour - please note that teaching hours are subject to successful enrolment numbers which will be confirmed in early September 2018.
Closing Date: 9am, Wednesday 20 June 2018
Interviews: to be held shortly after the closing date
