The position is full time, fixed term for one academic year, and attracts a salary dependant on teaching experience.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and expect all staff to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS check will be undertaken. We are an Equal Opportunities employer with excellent CPD provision.

The position is offered as a full–time role.  It attracts a salary of between £26,910 – £41,597, pro rata, dependant on experience.

Candidates shortlisted for interview will be expected to teach a micro-lesson as part of the selection process.

Benefits include excellent staff development provision, on-site canteen and gym. Free onsite parking. Excellent location.

The College operates a Sixth Form College academic year and therefore the Autumn Term begins in late August to allow for enrolment activities.

Please be aware that St David’s College reserves the right to close any vacancy earlier then the listed date if we have received a high level of applications. We would recommend that if you do wish to be considered that you complete the application as promptly as possible.
