professional development and training opportunities

At the Chichester College Group, we have a range of interesting and engaging professional development and training opportunities available to staff.

Continuing Professional Development is encouraged by the Group and is a great way to gain new skills and knowledge and enhance your career. Our professional development and training opportunities include:

  • Development days throughout the year, including two development days unique to your team and a ‘back to industry’ day for academic staff.
  • Free Level 2 Vocationally Related Qualifications (VRQs)
  • Leadership and management development, including the Group’s Management Development Centre
  • Online SPARK training sessions
  • Weekly Continuous Professional Development offerings for both business support and academic staff
  • The Level 3 Award in Education and Training is funded by the Group for new Lecturers who do not hold a teaching qualification

Your pathway into teaching

We are regularly recruiting for outstanding staff to teach across a variety of curriculum areas, including areas based in industry such as engineering, construction, hairdressing and hospitality.

However we recognise that moving into a teaching role can be daunting, especially if you have always worked in industry or are unfamiliar with working in Further Education.

Therefore we have put together a pathway into teaching, which outlines your journey to becoming an outstanding lecturer or teacher at the Chichester College Group.
