Oxfordshire Adult Learning (OAL) are recruiting for an hourly paid Gardening Lecturer to join our teaching team in the community. 

OAL is a large, award winning faculty of Abingdon and Witney College. We aim to maximise access to learning for adults in Oxfordshire, widening participation and transforming the health, social and economic wellbeing of individuals, families and their communities. We offer a wide range of courses including GCSE and Functional Skills in English and Maths, ESOL, Community Learning, and leisure learning courses at a variety of venues throughout Oxfordshire. 

The successful candidate will inspire and educate learners around the theoretical knowledge and practical aspects of gardening. You will foster a love for nature and sustainable practices. You will design an engaging curriculum covering various aspects of gardening, including plant biology, landscaping, sustainable practices, and horticulture. You must have the ability to engage and connect with learners with diverse needs and backgrounds in the community. 

 

Although a teaching qualification is an advantage, training opportunities exist within the College and we can support you in gaining your Award in Education and Training Level 3 Qualification (AET), within your first year of joining the college. 

This role may be eligible for the ‘Taking Teaching Further (TTF)’ programme, which supports professionals as they move into teaching in the further education sector. Support from the TTF programme can include an initial reduction in teaching workload and enrolment onto teacher training. 

 

In return, Abingdon & Witney College offer excellent benefits to our employees including generous pension and holiday schemes (with potential Christmas closure days), continued professional development, flexible working options, corporate gym membership, cycle/tech scheme and much more. 

 

Closing date: 15th February 2024 (Midnight) 

 

No candidate will meet every single desired qualification / criteria. If your experience looks a little different from what we’ve identified and you think you can bring value to the role, we’d love to learn more about you! 

AWC values diversity and encourages applications from all sections of the community. We are committed to safeguarding and expect all our employees and volunteers to share this commitment. We are exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and all appointments are subject to satisfactory clearances including enhanced DBS checks. 

Abingdon and Witney College are committed to safer recruitment practices. In addition to our pre-employment checks, we will conduct an online search. This includes checking Google main results feed as well as the ‘News’ and ‘Images’ tab.  We will be checking for any publicly available information that suggests the applicant may not be suitable to work with children or young/vulnerable people or content that could potentially damage Abingdon and Witney College’s reputation.
