Thank you for your interest in this post at WQE.
We believe that this is a particularly exciting time to be joining us, offering a real opportunity to make a difference in this thriving and vibrant Sixth Form College. We strive for excellence in all aspects of our work with students; their academic and wider achievements, their learning experiences, the support they receive in their academic progress, their learning environment and their wider experience of College life. The College operates across two closely located campuses, next to the University of Leicester on University Road and a smaller campus at Regent Road.
In this context, we are looking to appoint a French Language Assistant to deliver conversation classes to students preparing for examinations. The appointed person will be working with small groups of students to improve their oral and comprehension skills in the language in preparation for their examinations. The assistant will be responsible for preparing resources for these lessons under the guidance of the teachers of French and the Head of Department. The appointed person should be able to motivate and encourage students to participate in discussions, and should be prepared to deal with a wide range of topics and issues relating to France and the French-speaking countries. Experience of working in a College or school context would be an advantage.

The salary will be on the Sixth Form Colleges’ Support Staff pay scale point 41. The actual starting salary for this post is £8,788 per annum.
