This is an extremely exciting opportunity for a modern, forward thinking, professional from the Engineering sector to join our thriving College and be at the forefront of the new T Level qualifications. The College is continuing to implement new T level qualifications as they become available, and this is a unique opportunity for the right candidate to work with us in developing our curriculum.

We are looking for lecturers to join the STEAM faculty to join our growing team of Engineering lecturers. The T levels are very broad and we would encourage applicants from any area of Engineering, however we are particularly interested in candidates with experience in Mechanical Engineering, including maths and science. We have just opened our brand-new T level building, and we continue to transform our environment with state-of-the-art developments. The building includes three purpose built engineering workshops, including an electronics and materials testing lab, a design and 3D printing lab, and a workshop with CNC capability.

This post would be suitable for an experienced teacher, or someone looking to move into a career in teaching from prior work in the Engineering or Construction industries. 

The successful applicant will have an opportunity to develop their passion for education within a supportive and quickly developing area, playing a pivotal role in the continued development and delivery of the innovative T levels.
