With ambitious plans for the future, and with the recent approval to build a multimillion pound new campus which will become a centre of excellence, this is an exciting time for us.  Your knowledge, skills and experience will help us achieve these plans.

We operate two academic faculties:

Faculty of Technology

Including – Technology, Engineering Craft, Construction Craft and Forestry/Arboriculture

Faculty of Life Sciences, Business and Creative Industries

Including - Health/Care/Education/Supported Learning, Business/Management/Accounting/IT/ Hospitality and Cooking, Science/Sport/Hair/Beauty and Art/Drama/Media/Languages/ESOL

Additionally, there are a diverse range of support services working closely with the academic faculties to deliver a high quality learning environment while contributing to both research and commercial activity.

If you are motivated to support us in achieving our aims, are committed to the delivery of high quality education and are excited about the challenges ahead, we would be interested to hear from you.  All college vacancies are advertised on the following pages.

Completing the application form

Do not attach a separate CV as this will not be referred to. You are advised to carefully read the job description and person specification for the post to ensure that you meet the relevant criteria.

Further information in support of your application

This section provides the opportunity for you to present your skills, experience, knowledge, qualifications and personal qualities, which are relevant to the Person Specification and Job Description. You do not have to copy the text from the Person Specification, but please provide the information in the same order as the Person Specification. You should respond to each item on the Person Specification in detail, indicating how you meet or have the potential to meet the criteria. Remember to: -

  • be specific about your relevant skills, knowledge, experience, qualifications and personal qualities
  • explain how you have used them and with what results
  • explain how you would use them for the post applied for
  • use information about your current and/or previous employment and voluntary work, community or leisure interests to respond to the items on the Person Specification

The selection process

When the application period for the advertised post has closed, all applications will be short listed against the Person Specification. Where applicants’ information on their application evidences that they meet the criteria identified on the Person Specification, they will be invited for interview.

The elements of the selection process will vary, dependent upon the post applied for. In all cases, short listed candidates will be invited for an interview. In addition, where appropriate for the post, interviewees may be required to undertake a practical, written or group exercise, take a written or online assessment or deliver a presentation to the selection panel.

If you are invited to attend an interview you should ensure that you bring with you the originals of any educational certificates that you hold, and proof or your eligibility to work in the UK.

Supply/bank staff

We would also like to hear from professionals who are interested in teaching on a supply basis.  Teaching on a supply basis is an excellent method of updating your own CPD while passing on your current industry experience to those who are keen to learn.  It doesn’t need to be an extensive commitment and is potentially something that you can either undertake in the evenings or during the day in conjunction with your main employer.

Please refer to the Job Description and Person Specification when completing your application.

If you are interested in applying to be available on the supply bank for one of the subjects mentioned above, please complete and submit a speculative application form clearly labelling the subject you are applying for.
