What the school offers its staff

Rochdale Sixth Form College (RSFC) opened in 2010 to address the significant underachievement in A Level performance in the borough. Since then, it has raised achievement in the area dramatically and is recognised nationally as a centre of excellence. The college is rated Ofsted outstanding and, is consistently ranked as one of the highest performing colleges in the country according to the DfE's performance tables and national achievement rate tables.

Due to expansion and increase in student numbers, we are looking for an outstanding, enthusiastic and passionate Student Performance & Development Leader (SPDL), who is keen to work alongside our students and support them, both in their academic and personal development, during their time at college. Highly motivated and resilient you will have a genuine desire to improve the life chances of our young people. The successful candidate will work within a highly effective SPDL Team, which currently consists of 14 staff members and is led by the Lead Student Performance and Development Leaders. The SPDLs along with Subject Leaders form the middle leadership team. RSFC has an excellent reputation, and this is a real opportunity for you to make your mark.

The welfare of our students is at the centre of everything we do, and our Student Performance and Development Team are the main point of contact for teachers, parents, and carers. SPDLs hold weekly classroom tutorials and theatre sessions with all students, as well as one-to-one meetings. To support students, SPDLs also work closely with external agencies and attend safeguarding meetings. The team’s focus is to ensure students settle into college life and work alongside students to ensure they achieve their potential and help them on their journey to success. SPDLs are also a central supportive figure in the transition from college to higher education, apprenticeships, or employment.

You will be joining RSFC at a very exciting time in its development and there are always opportunities for career progression for hardworking and resilient colleagues.

Rochdale Sixth Form College (RSFC) opened in 2010 to address the significant underachievement in A Level performance in the borough. Since then, it has raised achievement in the area dramatically and is recognised nationally as a Centre of excellence. The college is Ofsted outstanding, and regularly one of the highest performing colleges in the country according to the DfE’s performance tables and national achievement rate tables.

The Altus Education Partnership was formed in April 2017. It is a multi-academy trust formed by the governing body of Rochdale Sixth Form College and dedicated to the improvement of education in the borough of Rochdale. The Trust’s mission arose from and built upon the successes and values of the sixth form college. In short, our mission is to create a family of academies from early years to 18 that enables students in the borough to progress to an aspirational career, a fulfilling life and to make a positive contribution to society.

To work at RSFC you must aspire to be an outstanding colleague. You must be willing to share and learn. You must be prepared to go the extra mile, be a leader not a follower. Above all else, you must like young people and aspire to make them outstanding citizens.

We wish to appoint someone who will help us to continue to make a positive difference to the lives of young people in the borough. In return we promise a supportive and enjoyable working environment, and the resources needed to carry out the role to the highest standards.
