Would you like to work for a national charity with wide reach into different ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) provision and a national policy role? If you answered yes to these questions, you might be interested in being our new National Coordinator!
The National Association for Teaching English and Community Languages to Adults (NATECLA) is recruiting for a new National Coordinator.

For over 40 years we have supported our members with professional development opportunities, individually and sector-wide. We connect ESOL professionals with their local peers and we have shaped the sector through our policy engagement at the highest levels. Most recently we have been influential in encouraging the government to create a national strategy for English language, part of the new integration strategy.
As our National Coordinator, you will be responsible for the day-to-day running of our membership charity, organising national events such as our popular and successful annual National Conference 2019, working with regional branches, and marketing and communications with partners and external bodies. You will supervise the Assistant National Coordinator, who is based in our Birmingham office, and work closely with her.
