Ever considered a teaching career in Further Education (FE)?

Working in FE really makes a difference to the individuals you are teaching. All sorts of students come through the door of an FE college: the 16 year old who senses that it’s time to leave school, the adult facing unemployment who wants to retrain to find a job, the non-native speaker looking to master English or the individual who wants to follow a vocation rather than take a degree. They all have an eye on their future and this job will help them achieve their goals.

We are offering a new and exciting opportunity to train while you earn as a Trainee Teacher at Shipley College. We are looking for a range of Trainees - you will receive a salary for two years while studying part time, at no cost to you.

We are looking for people with industry experience in Health & Social Care, Childcare, Finance/Accountancy and Computing/Digital who want to change careers and pass on their knowledge and experience to others. Please see our website for job packs for each role available by visiting
