Are you an experienced Plumber or Gas Engineer looking to pass on your skills to the next generation?

Or are you an experienced Plumbing & Heating/ Gas/ HVAC Lecturer/ Assessor looking for a new opportunity at a brilliant new Construction Skills Centre?

If so, we want to hear from you!

Designed specifically for apprentices, existing trades people and employers, the Bicester Construction Skills Centre is a professional environment which feels much more like a workplace than a college or school. We have a brand-new Blue Flame accredited Gas Centre providing Gas Safe qualifications alongside our apprenticeship provision. Apprentices develop the workplace skills that we know are in high demand, like punctuality, teamwork, and communication, whilst learning the very highest level of practical skills in brand new workshops with state-of-the-art equipment and materials. Adults can upskill or re-certify in a professional environment, working alongside our experienced team of trainers who genuinely understand their industry.  

Working as part of small, enthusiastic, and highly committed team you will work with apprentices in the classroom and workshops and will also carry out assessments in the workplace. If you have not taught or demonstrated practical skills before, then do not worry – no teaching qualifications are necessary! We will help you to qualify if you want to – what we ask to start with is that you are enthusiastic and passionate about transferring your skills on to the next generation of industry professionals. We can teach you to teach!  

If you are already an experienced lecturer, then our award-winning Teaching Skills Academy will help you to develop your teaching skills further and our Leadership Development Academy can support you into management, if that is your next step. Our small class sizes, new facilities and supportive friendly culture really help us to stand out as a Further Education employer – you will definitely notice the difference! 

For the right candidate, this post could be available on a fixed term or permanent basis, with full or part-time hours. In return, Abingdon & Witney College offer excellent benefits to our employees including generous pension and holiday schemes (38 days paid annual leave plus bank holidays and potential Christmas closure days), flexible working options, corporate gym membership, cycle/tech scheme and more.
