Bodmin College is a large 11-19 establishment (with Area Resource Base - ARB) providing, extensive, high quality education and care. We maintain high standards of achievement and traditional values within a disciplined and caring environment. Students are encouraged to enjoy their education, to develop respect for others and, through assuming responsibility, to develop as reliable and mature individuals ready to take an active role in adult life. Our College is characterised by its vision of, ‘striving for excellence by putting the learner first’. We aim, in all that we do, to put students at the centre of our decision making processes and at the heart of our four key objectives which are: • To improve the attainment and progress of all students in all subjects • To improve the educational opportunities for all students in all subjects • To improve the quality of the learning experience for all students in all subjects • To assist and work in partnership with parents and carers to improve students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development This vision and our objectives are underpinned by an ethos in which we expect everyone, ‘to be kind, be polite, to be honest and to work to the very best of their ability. With notable success as a finalists in the UK Social Mobility Awards for two consecutive years, we pride ourselves on opening doors, creating opportunity and raising aspirations. More recently, our journey with the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust has seen our committed involvement in ‘The Framework for Excellence. A journey towards a world-class education system’. Within this structure, assessment has been robust and challenging, yet one in which we have been successfully recognised as providing ‘exceptional education’ through our ‘principled curriculum design’, ‘leadership through moral purpose’ and in our ‘climate for learning’ (SSAT, 2017). We have received national recognition for raising aspirations, removing barriers to social mobility and opening up world-class opportunities to our students. Bodmin College has recently been invited to participate in the ‘Connect the Classroom’ scheme through the DfE. This scheme will see a significant investment in the IT infrastructure within the college to improve WiFi and connectivity throughout the college campus. In addition, the college has also been successful in the exciting School Rebuilding Programme which will see another significant level of investment to improve the buildings on our site. We are hopeful that this award will assist us in continuing to develop the learning environment for all our students and staff. It is a long term project which will help us to deliver our vision for excellent education in the local area. We achieve this only through the dedication, commitment, passion and hard work of our staff. Our staff body are valued and cared for and their wellbeing, professional development and input are important to us. Please note that Bodmin College is not a sponsoring organisation. Therefore the successful applicant must already possess the right to work in the UK or be able to secure the right to work in the UK independently.
