About The Role

**Please note this is a part time role which requires the successful candidate to work 25 hours per week with a pro rata salary of £22,564 up to £24,745 per annum**
We have an exciting opportunity for a Lecturer of Creative Media at EKC Sheppey College. It is an exciting time to join the team, with a multi-million pound extension to the college planned to open in September 2025. Creative Media and Computing is one of our targeted areas of growth to lead into qualifications in Digital Design, Production and Development when our new building opens.
You will teach, train and assess students in a variety of learning environments, ensuring a high-quality learning experience. Your role will also include providing support to learners to enable them to achieve their maximum potential and to lead as appropriate on designated study programmes and/or courses, with a key responsibility for ensuring the design, delivery and evaluation of programme.
We pride ourselves in the support we can give those who are new to teaching, with ongoing training and coaching through our Teacher Academy. So, if you do not have any teaching experience or teacher qualifications but have a passion for sharing your knowledge and would like to be considered for this teaching role please apply.
Alongside our priority of excellent student experience, we also focus on our employees. Here are just some of our benefits when working for the East Kent Colleges Group:
  • Competitive salary and holiday entitlement 
  • If new to teaching, you will benefit from £7000 investment in your teacher training when you come straight from industry
  • Access to 100's of online discounts via our Rewards Scheme (Inc. Restaurant, Grocery, Retail, Gym, Holidays)
  • Access to cycle to work, car leasing and tech purchasing schemes
  • Generous pension scheme - 28% employer contribution
  • Being part of a company with a Eco-Sustainability focus of being Net-Zero
  • Time off for your child's first day at school, moving home and for interviews
  • My 10 Days initiative - bid for up-to 10 days off work to pursue voluntary work
  • Being part of Community Days and Annual Staff Celebration Day 

About You

You will be highly organised, creative and be able to plan and teach engaging and innovative lessons with demonstrated interpersonal skills.


With industry related experience in creative media - either photography, film or moving image, you will be able to bring the theory of the subject to life, giving students the opportunity to learn with different types of equipment and software including Photoshop and InDesign.


You will be responsible for assessing and tracking student progress, raising aspirations and planning further interventions where necessary to ensure that all students achieve their potential. This will be a vital part of the role and ensuring all students develop the skills they need to succeed. 

Ideally you will have experience of teaching or have delivered training in the workplace, although this isn't essential as training will be offered to the successful applicant. You must have a positive outlook, be empathetic towards learners and have strong classroom management skills.  

You will be able to teach a range of designated study programs and/ or courses from Level 1 up to Level 3 and will be able to motivate learners to achieve and succeed on their programmes of study
