We are one of the largest partners of the University of the Highlands and Islands, a partnership of 13 colleges and research institutions comprising Scotland’s newest university.

As the UK’s leading tertiary education provider, we deliver both further education and higher education courses and that makes us different from traditional institutions. Through an innovative approach to learning and some of the best online learning technologies, we offer our students the complete learner journey, where they have choice and flexibility to study from access level right through to PhD.

Inverness College UHI is at the heart of the community. Working closely with businesses and stakeholders, our curriculum and research capacity is designed to meet the ever-evolving needs of industry and support the strengths and ambitions of the region. Through a personalised approach, we help our students discover their right path, providing them with a combination of qualification and job-ready skills to succeed in the workplace. Inverness College UHI has locations at Inverness Campus and also the Scottish School of Forestry (Balloch), a growing hub for research, innovation and enterprise set within a 215 acre site. 

Due to the rapid expansion of our Modern Apprenticeship programmes, we are seeking an Assessor/Trainer in Carpentry and Joinery.

This is an exciting opportunity for people with industry experience to train as Assessors and put their knowledge to use in assessing (and training where required) Modern Apprentices.

We are happy to take applications from people who are already assessors or to train people from Construction trades to assess.

Assessment and Training is mostly carried out at the Modern Apprentice Employer’s workplace, so good communication skills and customer service are essential, as is a current driving license.

For further information or an informal discussion about the role, please contact Georgina Parker on 01463 273651. 

Please note: the successful post holder will need to pass a satisfactory PVG scheme membership prior to commencing employment.
