Morley College London aims to have a workforce that is as reflective of the diverse population that it serves. The College particularly encourages applications from women, ethnic minorities and disabled people who are currently under-represented within the College at this level
Established in 1889, and with our roots stretching back even further, Morley College London is one of the country's oldest and largest specialist providers of adult education. At Morley College London, we provide long-term, sustainable and affordable programmes of lifelong learning across three centres – North Kensington, Chelsea and Waterloo – including 16-19 provision at North Kensington and Chelsea.
As one of only nine Specialist Designated Institutions (SDIs) in the UK, we serve more than 17,000 students through a coherent, student-centred course offer, underpinned by our mission to empower individuals and strengthen communities through education in Arts, Culture and Applied Sciences. Whether studying for personal development and well-being, to gain essential skills (English, Maths, IT), to access higher education, or for career development or change, our vision is for ambitions to be inspired and achieved through learning.
Following Morley College’s merger with Kensington and Chelsea College in February 2020, the College has restructured its curriculum to facilitate its ambitious plan for development and growth, with the aim of the North Kensington Centre becoming a hub for transformative education opportunities that serves the needs of a richly diverse community.
The College is now looking to appoint Head of Essential Skills for the College’s North Kensington site to provide leadership and management of the subject areas within Essential Skills to ensure consistent and high quality curriculum delivery at Centre and in line with the overall College strategy for essential skills. You will promote high student achievement, progression and satisfaction for both adult students and those on 16-19 study programmes. The Head of Essential Skills will have some teaching duties and line manage the Subject Leaders in English, Maths and ICT and ESOL.
With a substantial academic background in Essential Skills with an excellent understanding of the diverse needs of adult and 16-18 year old learners and the ability to respond to those needs to support progress, you will have experience of successfully leading and managing a team of teaching staff to raise standards and achievement.
