Teaching roles

Teaching in Further Education is an exciting and highly rewarding career choice for both experienced and newly qualified teachers.

Some of our teachers choose to work on a part-time basis so they can continue to work in their chosen industry. This allows them to keep up-to-date with important developments and to continue forging links and contacts that benefit our students.

Why teach in Essex?

Relocating can often be daunting but here are some reasons why you should consider Essex.

Good value housing

Compared to London and many parts of the South East, you can still get good value in Essex and more chances to get on the housing ladder. Ideal for first time buyers, there are many opportunities for shared ownership and other affordable housing options.

Loads of green space

Essex is a great place for adventure seekers. There are numerous parks, public gardens and woodlands. Sports include mountain biking (we’re home to the Olympic mountain bike course), trekking and water sports.

Great schools

Essex is a great place to bring up a family, with plenty of different schooling options.

Seaside lovers

Many people dream of living by the sea (or at least very near it). Move to Essex and you can do just that.

Loads going on!

Festivals, theatre, cultural events… Essex is full of great things to do without the stress of London commuting.
