About the College

Worthing College is a very popular college with over 1450 students.  Our recent Ofsted inspection judged us to be ‘Good’ in every respect.   Our mission is to inspire, build confidence and prepare our students to live the life they want to live and is underpinned by our strong desire to become outstanding in the near future.   Above all Worthing College is a very friendly place with a strong sense of purpose, where teaching, learning and student success are second to none.

Background to the Post

As well as a nursery we also run a holiday club based in our forest school for children aged 4 -11 years.  A casual Forest school leader is required to lead Forest School sessions in the school holidays. In February 2014 we created the holiday club for school children aged 4 to 12 years old with the philosophy to encourage and inspire individuals of any age through outdoor experiences. This role is to lead the sessions with the help of other staff members.
