Based in Stoke on Trent with easy transport links from the North West, West Midlands and East Midlands, Stoke on Trent College is the largest provider of further education in Stoke and North Staffordshire, with around 10,000 students each year on full-time and part-time study programmes, apprenticeships, professional qualifications and university-level courses. We also help thousands of local people each year to gain the basic skills needed for work, be it English and maths, employability skills or specific work-related qualifications. Our students routinely win awards in regional and national competitions and the challenge helps to unleash their talent and prepare them for the competitive world of employment.

As a Lecturer in Foundation ESOL you have a chance to work with a diverse mix of mature students with English as a second language. We’ll look to you to carry out initial screening and diagnostic assessment, develop learning plans for individual students, and monitor progress, attendance, and punctuality. A confident team player, you’ll also undertake administration to ensure the smooth running of your course and collaborate with colleagues on course materials.

You’ll come to us with a recognised ESOL qualification, such as CELTA or Trinity TESOL, together with a proven track record of developing the ESOL curriculum. A teaching qualification such as the CTLLS (CET), Cert Ed, PGCE or DTLLS (DET) would be desirable. Naturally, you’ll have a commitment to diversity and equality of opportunity with a sympathetic and flexible approach to supporting students to achieve their full potential.

Our staff put teaching, learning and assessment at the heart of everything they do, with a commitment to excellence and continuous improvement we respect and value all individuals and behave with honesty and integrity. As such we have a united staff culture where we seek and share best practice helping us to prioritise learners.

In recognition of the vital role our staff play in our ongoing success we offer fantastic rewards beyond your pay slip that include a competitive pension package, enhanced leave policies, support for continued professional development, health related benefits including individual health care plans and access to a state of the art gym, childcare vouchers, onsite nursery, on site parking, on site restaurant facilities and a cycle to work scheme to name but a few!
