The post holder will lead on ensuring Quality in the Classroom through performance management and professional development of Teaching Professionals.  They will ensure learning methodology is consistent with British Council Brand standards and teaching delivery exceeds customer expectations and is in line with latest thinking in pedagogy.   
This post will also play a key role in delivering the Maghreb Cluster’s (Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia) ambitious vision to become a hub for innovation and creativity in teaching and learning; while delivering on rapid expansion plans and working with colleagues across the three countries to realise the significant opportunities unlocked by greater alignment and collaboration. 

Function Overview

The British Council Morocco has Teaching Centres in Rabat and Casablanca and offers high quality English language learning opportunities for Young Learners, Adult students, and a growing number of private and public sector clients. Our Exams business administers over 5,000 English language exams including IELTS for work/study overseas, examinations for British curriculum schools and for a number of UK  professional and educational bodies. We also work with partners in the education, government and corporate sectors to provide a range of English language services. 

The Casablanca Teaching Centre is currently the largest teaching business in the Maghreb cluster in terms of income, with over 1,500 Primary and Secondary learners attending courses per term as well as 350 Adult learners. The teaching team currently consists of about 30 teachers, a Senior Teacher and two Coordinators for Young Learners, an Adult Course Coordinator, and a Learning and Development Coordinator. Many of our teachers join the team after graduating from our annual CELTA programme and as such the L&D programme is a strong and important part of centre life. Learning and innovation is a shared priority across Morocco, and we work closely with the team in Rabat to ensure our teachers and colleagues working with the teaching centre benefit from opportunities and share their experience across the country as well as across the Maghreb cluster. 

The Casablanca office is predominantly a teaching centre operation. Back office space is shared with a small Exams team, with a friendly Customer Service team welcoming both teaching centre learners and exams candidates through the front office. The Country Director, DELS Morocco, BSS and Programmes teams are normally based in our main office in Rabat, though several colleagues travel regularly between the two cities and the journey takes roughly an hour by car or train.
