Our staff play an important role in preparing students for the world of work, so we aim to ensure they are rewarded for their efforts.

Salaries and conditions for college staff are now agreed nationally, but at NCL our salaries are competitive and we offer a range of benefits and service to staff, to ensure you have the work/life balance just right. We offer a standard working week of 35 hours, but part time, term time and flexible working options may also be available. Just some of the benefits we offer include:

  • Membership of either Scottish Teachers’ Pension Scheme or Local Government Pension Scheme;
  • Childcare Vouchers Scheme, providing assistant with childcare costs; • Cycle to Work Scheme;
  • On-site staff gyms and health and wellbeing discounts;
  • Retail and other discounts provided by local businesses to college staff.

Our focus is always on helping to develop and support staff, which is why the College recently gained a Healthy Working Lives Bronze Award, and continues to strive towards a Silver accreditation.

We are also proud of our Investors in People accreditation, which demonstrates our commitment to continuous professional development. We encourage and support staff to undertake training and development opportunities which will enhance their current skills and future careers.
