We are primarily seeking to recruit a tutor to deliver sessions at the Winsford campus on Wednesday daytime, which are planned to run throughout the year.

Ideally the successful candidate would also be available to deliver classes in the community in both the Warrington and Vale Royal areas.

We offer an excellent salary and benefits package, which includes:

· A competitive salary

· Full programme of training and mentoring

· Induction programme and buddy scheme

· Flexible working, where appropriate

· Focus on sustainability

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.

The college is proud to hold the Gold accreditation in the Investors in People framework. We have been assessed against the criteria of Leading, Supporting and Improving, and the Gold award means that the college has the right principles in place, and our people and leaders demonstrate a commitment to best practice, people management and personal development.

Suitable candidates should have experience in the field of floristry and at least a level 3 teaching qualification or working towards it. Being ICT literate is also an advantage as the college uses Google Classroom as support for classroom-based courses.
