Develop your career with Activate Learning. We offer a wide range of opportunities across the following key areas.
We regularly recruit both qualified and unqualified teaching staff to deliver a high-quality learning experience. All teaching staff need a degree or equivalent qualification in their chosen subject. If not yet qualified, they must be willing to become qualified within two years.
Are you qualified?
You will need an appropriate teaching qualification at secondary or FE level. The main current qualifications are the B ED and Cert Ed. We also accept equivalent former qualifications and equivalent international qualifications. Qualified teachers must update their skills and professional development record and maintain their membership of the IFL. If you are unsure whether you meet the requirements for the qualified pay scale, please contact us for advice.
Are you unqualified but keen to teach?
Many of our academic staff joined the group as unqualified teachers with relevant professional experience and the desire and skills to become great teachers. Activate Learning is committed to lifelong learning for our staff. We support unqualified teachers to achieve their Cert Ed or PGCE within two years of their appointment. Our successful Teacher Training programme is run at both City of Oxford College and Banbury and Bicester College.
Vocational trainers teach manual and practical skills, covering a wide range of subjects including construction, motor vehicle, engineering, hairdressing and hospitality. We recruit vocational trainers with contemporary knowledge and professional skills to teach on these “hands on” courses, giving our students the skills to be active learners, employees and citizens and build a career in their chosen industry. Contemporary vocational and industry experience inspires our students, and gives them an edge in our competitive world.
Our Group Services division is responsible for running Activate Learning in an efficient way. This includes much of the daily work outside the classroom, essential to delivering outstanding customer service. Areas such as finance, IT, customer services, student services, property and environment, quality, marketing, human resources and Management and Information Systems work together to support students and staff across the Group.
