Media Teacher

We are looking for a passionate and inspiring Media Teacher within the Creative Industries Faculty based at Reading College.

This part-time post (currently 0.6 FTE) provides an excellent opportunity for a practitioner/tutor/developing teacher with passion and drive who is committed to enabling our students to unlock their potential and switch on to the power of learning. This role is incredibly varied, where no day is the same and you have the ability to expose students to a wide range of skills including filming, editing, animation, visual effects research techniques and more. We also hope to introduce a qualification in iMedia and Digital Art in 2022/23.

What do you need to be successful in this role?
Successful candidates will have an appropriate professional qualification and/or a degree in film production, media studies or relevant field. We would consider applications from unqualified teachers, with the ability to inspire our learners and a willingness to develop skills within teaching, who have a desire to become qualified.

Successful candidates should be able to demonstrate their desire and ability to work alongside the wider team to continue to develop links with local businesses and the wider community to build and engage students in valuable work experience and project-based learning. 

What are the benefits of this role?
The successful candidate will be joining an exciting, forward-thinking, innovative team who work collaboratively with colleagues across the wider Creative Industries faculty and you will also be joining one of the largest Education Providers in the UK. You will be provided with peer-to-peer learning, a formal development plan and support at every step of the way to set you up for success. We offer a buddy system, induction modules and a close-knit community across the Group to support the sharing of best practice and encourage individual growth.

What are the benefits of working for Activate Learning Group? 
At Activate Learning we are pioneering education with an unwavering focus on providing talent for business and transforming lives through our award-winning Learning Philosophy. Our student experience is the result of our attention to detail in recruiting, developing and retaining the right staff who match and promote the values and behaviours of our brand.

We reward our employees with generous annual leave entitlements, access to training and development, onsite parking (first come first served), plenty of public transport options for all sites, discounted membership to the Lifestyle Centre (on some campuses) and Employee Assistance Programme. The music department also boasts some of the finest resources in the locality and access to these is available to music staff as and when not in use by the department.

Applications are reviewed and shortlisted on a rolling basis and we reserve the right to interview, appoint and close adverts early due to the volume of applications we receive.

We therefore encourage you to apply at the earliest opportunity to avoid disappointment as once we have closed a vacancy you will be unable to submit your application form.

Activate Learning is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all its staff to share this commitment. Successful applicants will be required to undergo a DBS check at the appropriate level.

Applicants must be eligible to work in the UK as we do not sponsor work permits and work permits from other organisations are unacceptable as proof of right to work in the UK.

Applications are encouraged from all candidates meeting or exceeding the minimum criteria for the role regardless of age, disability, gender, orientation, race, religion or ethnicity.

Activate Learning are committed to employing people with disabilities and will ensure our recruitment process is inclusive and accessible. If you require any reasonable adjustments either at application or interview stage, please contact the talent team directly.

If an agency submits an unsolicited CV to any partner or employee of our company, you should be aware that they have no authority to enter into an arrangement with you. Should we require recruitment agency involvement, we will contact the agencies on our preferred suppliers list, and we would ask that you respect the relationships we have already built with these suppliers.
