Why work for us?

When you work for the college, you become part of our greatest asset: our people. We know that by treating you with excellence, we will receive excellent work in return.

Imagine this:

  • Working for a college based around the principle that ‘people work best when they feel good about themselves’.
  • A workplace where, instead of levels of approval, people are trusted to make the key decisions for themselves.
  • Managers who’ll trust you to work out your own balance of life and work.
  • A blame-free culture where mistakes are celebrated as a tool for progress.

Wouldn’t you want to work there?

We aim to recruit people who:

  • Are excited by their role and by the prospect of working with all young people, including  those who are less well motivated;
  • Are passionate about the processes of learning and teaching and are keen to continually develop their own skills;
  • Meet the demands of the job with enthusiasm;
  • Will subscribe to the ethos of the College and go the extra mile in terms of time and commitment to get the very best from our students;
  • Are quick to praise and slow to criticize;
  • Are not afraid to admit to seeing themselves as potential leaders of the future;
  • Strive for excellence in all aspects of their work.
