Are you an experienced and motivated Teacher of Construction or Design Technology specialising in Woodwork? We are offering an exciting opportunity to join our Applied Learning Team delivering theory and practical lessons in construction and the construction industry as a whole, teaching 14-18 year old full-time students.

The courses consist of a number of practical and theory based units, covering the industry as a whole and specialising in the following practical units: roofing, brickwork, and carpentry.
The successful candidate would ideally have City and Guilds assessor levels 1 and 2 qualifications to support with delivering the diploma. Level 3 would be desirable.
We are ideally looking for someone with experience in woodwork and/or in the brickwork area. Depending on the skills of the successful applicant part of the role will require you to deliver and support other practical areas.
While teaching, assessor and verifier qualifications would be desirable they are not essential. A candidate with the ability to encourage young people in their learning is essential.
