With this in mind, our recruitment process reflects the Gloucestershire College values at every stage, to ensure that we not only recruit the very best talent, but also people who fit the culture of the College and believe in our values.

Values are important to describe the attitudes, motivations and behaviours the College aspires towards, providing a framework for identifying actions and activities that create alignment with our vision.
GC has identified six core values to underpin its work. These are:
The College wants to be the very best it can become for its students - it measures its success by their success. GC values what it does because it matters. GC believes that every learner can achieve their potential.
The College is committed to continuously improving everything it does for the benefit of its students. GC actively invites feedback from its customers, regularly reviews completed tasks to identify opportunities to improve, is receptive to new ideas and learns from its failures as well as its successes.
• Team work
The College’s success is based on its staff. We work collaboratively utilising the different knowledge, skills and experiences we each have; we openly communicate, resolve issues and learn lessons.
The College’s success is built on each member of staff taking personal responsibility for their own actions and work, and committing to doing their best every time. The College avoids micro-managing; giving members of staff the freedom to perform and to hold each other to account for results.
Everyone is informed, listened to and involved; the College takes collective responsibility for achieving its vision; and expectations are clear.
The College believes that trust, respect and civility bring out the best in people. Members of staff celebrate differences and treat each other and GC students in ways that promote mutual respect.
