Would you relish the opportunity to teach students the subject of Sport within a college setting?

Within the sport curriculum we have two distinct pathways: sport and exercise science and sport coaching and physical activity. The sport science courses are geared towards students with sights on a career supporting sport performance, with alumni taking up roles as strength and conditioning coaches, biomechanists, nutritionists, physiotherapists, sport psychologists, and performance analysts. Our sport coaching and physical activity pathway is driven toward students who want active roles within coaching, teaching, or instructing sectors. This pathway emphasises the skills needed to thrive and succeed within these settings.

You would teach surrounded by a committed and supportive team who will readily share resources and best practices, and offer support whenever required. Within this environment we would help you further develop as a practitioner, as you in turn develop your students.

Who are we looking for?

A self-regulatory individual who can contribute significantly to the department through effective teaching and learning, offering sector insights, supporting student outcomes and exit routes, and being a good team player.

We want an individual who is adaptable, but who also has a clear USP within the domains of sport science or physical activity. This individual will readily ‘bring something to the table’.

If you want the opportunity to teach as part of the sport team we would like to hear from you.

The post holder will be expected to:

  • Teach to a high standard, and develop the relevant skills to teach truly outstanding provision
  • Be willing to teach, in-part, across other subjects if required (e.g., entry into the uniformed services)
  • Candidates should have a commitment to providing high quality learning to enable all learners to achieve their full potential.  The ability to truly work as a team player is also essential.  The post holder will be expected to demonstrate outstanding organisational and interpersonal skills.
  • Effectively prepare students for non-examined assessments and examined assessments.
  • Candidates should possess either proven experience in industry or a good honours degree in a related subject (or a combination of both). Ideally you will hold a teaching qualification, or be committed to obtain a suitable qualification once in post.
