As an employer, Furness College will aim to provide you with an inspirational environment, guidance and professional development as you work towards your career goals.
Our hard-working staff are our key resource at Furness College and we want them to enjoy a rewarding and fulfilling career with us.
We offer staff a range of benefits, including a generous annual leave entitlement, substantial pension contributions and private health treatments.
In addition, staff can make use of the fantastic facilities at our Channelside and sixth form campuses, which include a state-of-the-art gym and fitness facilities, 3G pitch, The Salon, Restaurant and free car parking.
We continuously look to develop the curriculum we offer at Furness College to ensure we meet the needs of local businesses, and we are always keen to speak to qualified Lecturers, or those interest in training to be one. At Furness College, we can provide you with all the information, advice and support you need to become a Lecturer, if you have the right industry skills and qualifications. If you are new to teaching, you will be expected to complete the Certificate in Education or PGCE at the College within your first two years of appointment. In ensuring that the quality of teaching, learning and assessment continues to develop, we have a number of Teaching and Learning Coaches available, providing advice and support to Lecturers.
Our Business and Employment Support Team focuses on employer engagement and apprenticeships, actively supporting employers in the Furness area to grow and develop their workforce. The team also includes our Business Development Coordinators and Recruitment and Development Coaches who are responsible for marketing to both employers and apprentices, while monitoring the progression of their current apprentices. In order to meet the needs of local businesses, Furness College often needs staff to deliver training outside of our curriculum provision. If you feel you have a set of skills that could contribute to local employers and are interested in joining our register of delivery staff, please contact Human Resources.
In order to ensure we are providing the best service to our students, their parents, schools, employers and other stakeholders, there are a number of support functions across the College. Whether it be Technicians, who work directly in the Curriculum Areas, or customer-facing functions such as Student Services, there are lots of opportunities to play a key role in supporting our curriculum and commercial aims.
The College also aims to recruit its own apprentices. These positions are a great opportunity for those looking to gain experience in a post-16 education environment and work as a member of support staff, or work towards a management role. Our apprenticeship programme has been very successful and a number of our apprentices have gone on to secure permanent roles across the College in a wide range of functions.
We have a dedicated Learning Support team made up of Learning Mentors and Learning Support Assistants whose primary role is to help our learners achieve, and support those with additional needs. Students can receive extra tuition or support which is delivered by our learning support staff as in-class support.
