In October 2019 the College was officially commended as ‘Good’ by Ofsted, and we celebrated some of the highest pass rates in England, ranking us in the top 10 nationally for the third consecutive year. Our mission is ‘Realising potential, transforming lives’. Our environment is inclusive, friendly and supportive, with high expectations for both staff and students. To thrive in our environment, you will need to be resilient, positive, able to work autonomously, have a strong work ethic, and put our learners at the heart of everything you do.
Suitable candidates will have relevant professional qualifications and industrial experience in Mechanical Engineering to teach Levels 2 – 3. Candidates must have experience of working with Lathes, Milling machines and CNC machines.
