The UEL student body is rich in its diversity; students are drawn from a wide range of backgrounds and age-groups, with a high proportion from low income groups. We look for outstanding teachers, who exude a love of teaching, who inspire students and colleagues through their approach to teaching, and who are strongly committed to raising levels of student achievement.
