This role is open to remote working meaning you will be able to do some of your teaching and supporting roles remotely. We're less about you driving to work and more about us collectively driving down our carbon footprint. We care about how you work rather than where you work, the people rather than the postcode. In support of our people and our greener futures strategies, we'd welcome a conversation with the successful candidate on what remote working may look like for you. 

Surrey Adult Learning (SAL) provides a wide range of part-time day and evening courses to adults. Most courses are community learning, but we have a growing provision of courses leading to formal qualifications. SAL makes an important contribution to Surrey County Council’s Community Vision for Surrey in 2030 and Surrey’s Health and Wellbeing Strategy.

Surrey Adult Learning (SAL) is seeking an enthusiastic and well organised individual to plan and deliver high quality learning for adults in English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) and act as an expert practitioner in the delivery of accredited programmes

  • To act as a critical friend while promoting the sharing of good practice, leading to higher standards of quality in teaching, learning and assessment
  • To assist in the role of programme planning and quality improvement for the ESOL curriculum area.

You will support the Curriculum Manager and Assistant Curriculum Manager in developing the ESOL provision across all Surrey Adult Learning centres and online. You will also complete and maintain all required quality documentation necessary for the course and to meet external awarding body requirements.

The role will be based at one of our Adult Learning Centres (which will be discussed further at interview). Travel within Surrey to our other centres and venues will be a necessity, so the post-holder is required to be a car user. The post-holder would be required to do some evening work.

  • Experience of successfully working within an Ofsted inspection framework to ensure a high standard of provision and care for learners
