Common Leys Campus 


Start date 25th October 2021 


Due to growth in our Animal and Agriculture student numbers this year we are now recruiting for a full-time lecturer. We offer City and Guilds level 2 and level 3 qualifications in Animal and Agriculture as part of our study programmes for young people.   

The successful candidate will be well organised, an excellent communicator and passionate about preparing young people for a career in this rapidly changing and diverse industry.  You will be based at our Land based Campus, Common leys Farm campus, just outside of Witney where we prepare students for careers in a range of land-based subjects including agriculture, animal management, equine management, horticulture and countryside management.   

You should be qualified to degree level in either animal, agriculture or a related subject and have wide experience of working within the industry.  Ideally you should be an experienced teacher and hold a teaching qualification but for an exceptional candidate coming from industry the college would support your development to obtain the required teaching qualifications.  The successful candidate should have the ability to course lead and drive forward the development of animal and agriculture teaching in preparation for the new T levels.  An interest in teaching a wide range of subjects, to include; Livestock, Animal Production, Grass and Forage, Plant and Soil Science Habitat and Conservation and Estate Management is required.  

Agriculture is a small but growing part of our curriculum and we have recently invested in a Livestock Technology Centre with modern industry standard equipment and facilities. You would be part of a dedicated, flexible team of lecturers, instructors, technicians and support staff based at the farm.  

This role may be eligible for the ‘Taking Teaching Further (TTF)’ programme, which supports industry professionals coming to teach in further education. The support which could be provided through the TTF programme includes enrolment on to a 2 year, Level 5 Diploma in Education & Training (DET) and an initial reduction in teaching workload 

In return, Abingdon & Witney College offer excellent benefits to our employees including generous pension and holiday schemes (with potential Christmas closure days), continued professional development, flexible working options, corporate gym membership, cycle/tech scheme and much more. 

Closing date:
