Previous experience is not essential, but you will need to be a fluent speaker of Spanish or be suitably qualified, having completed a foreign language course or degree in Spanish.

New College is an outstanding place to work and study, regularly near the top of UK Sixth Form College results tables and awarded outstanding in all areas by Ofsted.  With a dynamic, positive and supportive culture for staff and students, we have an enviable reputation for staff career progression and development.  With over 2500 students, New College Pontefract is the founding member of the New Collaborative Learning Trust (NCLT).  The Colleges and Schools within the Trust work closely together, presenting exciting opportunities for collaboration, support, development and progression.
