Reaseheath College and University Centre is a land-based provider based in Nantwich, Cheshire. Our beautiful, 330-hectare campus consists of parkland, forestry and woodland areas, with an on-site lake. Our state-of-the-art facilities include a sports hall, high ropes and equine centre, along side a fully licensed zoo and working farm, which we use to support our learners.
This fantastic campus makes for a lovely work environment. There’s a real variation in our provision types (ranging from college to degree level), so there’s always something happening on campus. We’ve got great links with industry, so whatever subject you are teaching you’ll have contact with leading industry partnerships. This helps enhance the teaching experience, providing opportunities for learners, as well as offering a supportive culture, with colleagues that you can rely on. Our specialist teaching and learning coaches will support you in your development, in addition to your colleagues and curriculum area manager.
There are many different routes at Reaseheath that you can enter into, such as learning support instructor, programme leader, lecturer and course manager, as well as opportunities to develop into managerial roles.
We are currently running an Aspire programme, with two cohorts, giving opportunities to staff members who aspire to be managers. There are various different sessions that run throughout the academic year, providing staff with the experience and information that they need if they were to pursue a management career. As part of the aspire to CMT programme, we have our mentees and mentors, who are matched at the beginning of the programme and mentored throughout. Mentees can approach their mentors to voice any questions or concerns, meeting monthly to discuss progress.
We know that teaching can be a very rewarding, but also a very competitive career, so there are a few things to think about before you apply. Why do you want to teach?

Be sure to mention this in your application.
