Lecturer in Skills for Life (0.6fte)


The School of Skills for Life is looking for an exceptional part-time lecturer to join their team. This is a key post which requires an understanding of Special Educational Needs.

We are looking for an exceptional lecturer, with the qualities to make a difference to our learners. Experience within foundation learning would help, but if you have teaching ability and could adapt your skills, we would love to hear from you.

As part of a specialist team, you will be expected to deliver high-quality provision and personalised learning, encouraging learners to enhance their skills and achieve their full potential set out in their Educational, Health and Care Plans.

This role would suit someone capable of creating and developing a range of learning opportunities to meet the needs of our students and the relevant awarding bodies from pre-entry to Entry level 3.

Understanding complex learner needs and ensuring that barriers to learning are removed will be essential for this role. An understanding of the SEND reforms and how the Code of Practice impacts on FE courses is also important.

This role requires a problem-solver with high expectations of themselves and our learners. This position will suit a flexible and highly organised individual that can plan and deliver sessions that meet the needs of young people in the department.

Good attention to detail is important with the ability to maintain accurate records utilising the College systems.

You’ll have the full support of a dynamic team and opportunities to bring your ideas to the role. Training and development are at the heart of everything we do so you’ll be actively encouraged to upskill.

You can access a wide range of discounts and benefits, free on-site parking, family friendly leave policies including generous maternity and paternity leave.  We offer a generous pension scheme, up to 35 days holiday plus bank holidays and additional time off at Christmas.

The successful candidate will join the School of Skills for Life reporting to Head of School Sandra Stack.

The closing date for applications is Friday 1st July 2022.
