An exciting opportunity has arisen to support the Learning Area Manager in Independent Living Skills (ILS). The Learning Area has a new Welsh Government led non-accredited curriculum, based on the 4 pillars; Community, Health and Wellbeing, Employability and ILS.

The pillars, combined with appropriate qualifications and the opportunity to develop literacy and numeracy, create a dynamic and flexible curriculum for students ranging from pre-entry up to GCSE.

The Assistant Learning Area Manager will support the Learning Area Manager in leading a team of dedicated staff to ensure the highest standards of quality are embedded within the provision. With a clear focus on developing the curriculum, managing student behaviour, tracking and monitoring student progress, managing cover and the management of staff.

Holding a degree or equivalent and a recognised teaching qualification (PGCE or equivalent), will be essential and you will ideally possess a Post Graduate/Higher degree in Leadership and Management or be willing to work towards one. Having previous experience of working in an additional learning needs educational setting will be highly desirable. The role will also carry a teaching commitment within the ILS department.

We are looking for candidates who can bring innovation, energy and a can-do attitude, supported by an extensive knowledge of additional learning needs.

Applications may be submitted in Welsh and will be treated no less favourably than applications submitted in English. Gower College Swansea recognises the importance of delivering its services in Welsh and recognises the need to grow its bilingual workforce. We therefore encourage applications from candidates who can demonstrate good Welsh Language skills.

Gower College Swansea is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. Appointments are subject to an enhanced DBS check and require registration with the Education Workforce Council for Wales.

Please note that we are expecting a high volume applicants for this vacancy. If we do, we may close the post before the specified date, therefore an early application is recommended.
