Activate Learning is a forward thinking organisation, where people come first. Activate Learning’s standards of behaviour encourage staff to earn respect by aiming high and making things happen; this unique ethos cultivates creativity, innovation and an aspirational learning environment for both staff and students. Teaching and learning is at the heart of all we do.  Working at Activate Learning promises to be challenging, however, as a large organisation, we can offer staff exceptional opportunities to develop their own professional skills, supported and guided by nationally recognised teaching and learning experts.  

We welcome both applicants who have experience of teaching as well as those who do not have teaching experience but who are currently working in industry and who are interested in becoming involved in teaching, assessing and training. 

The Technology Faculty, covers Engineering, ICT, Motor Vehicle Maintenance, Construction and Vehicle Restoration provision across all Activate Learning campuses. Teaching staff are responsible for the teaching, learning and assessment of their specialist programmes, which may vary across different programme levels, depending on the needs of the learners and the faculty. We teach both full time students on Study Programmes as well as apprenticeships and Higher Education (HNC /HND).  The faculty has developed effective, supportive subject specialist communities, which ensure continuity of delivery, standardisation of practice and sharing of resources.  

The faculty prides itself on the close relationships developed with a wide range of different employers. Employers are instrumental in supporting the delivery of curricula through project-based learning, ensuring that delivery and course content meet the needs of local industry. All learners undertake extensive work experience placements and employers are encouraged to work with teaching staff to develop relevant and innovative learning environments.  

Teaching within the Technology faculty, develops not only personal teaching skills, but also ensures the continued development of staff employability skills, vital in ensuring that learners can relate their studies to real life working environments. Therefore, staff are expected to embrace new innovative teaching methods and challenge learners to explore opportunities beyond their expectations.     

The following positions are available.  Most of the roles are permanent and full-time but we would also consider part-time and fixed-term or temporary roles depending on the candidate's background and experience. 

  • Faculty Manager - ICT & Engineering (Banbury College) 
  • Work-based Assessor– Motor Vehicle Maintenance - Full-time and permanent (Banbury College) 
  • Teacher – Engineering – Full-Time and permanent (Reading College)
