Nottingham College is offering a fantastic opportunity for an outstanding catering professional looking for a new challenge to begin, or to continue with, their career in education. We are a high performing vocational area based at the recently opened City Hub and we offer a wide range of courses for learners from Entry Level 3 through to Foundation Degree. With the growth of the area, we are looking for an enthusiastic and innovative chef lecturer to join our team, initially on a sessional basis. We also work closely with industry to ensure our students receive the best skills and knowledge for industry as possible.

Candidates should therefore:

  • Possess suitable experience of working in the Catering & Hospitality industry. You need to be suitably experienced in different levels of cookery and patisserie and be passionate about teaching and learning.
  • Be student focused, have passion, drive and vision that shines through to create outstanding learning opportunities.
  • Have excellent communication skills, empathy, understanding and the ability to inspire and engage young people to excel and achieve their learning goals.
  • Demonstrate that you have experience of using a range of technologies as well as a willingness to continue to update your skills through directed and self-directed CPD for learning technologies, e.g. Google Classroom and Microsoft Teams.
  • Ideally the successful candidates will hold an assessing or teaching qualification, however professional development and training is available to support this.
  • Will work occasional weekends or additional hours for college special events.
  • The roles will also include additional duties such as pastoral support, progress monitoring and report writing.
  • Holding the A1 IQA, TAQA or Level 4 IQA is desirable but not essential.

Our hourly paid lecturers also have 40% admin time for each hour of teaching and 45 days annual leave (pro rata)

The post will be shortlisted against the essential and desirable criteria at application stage from the person specification. Please ensure that you have a look at this specification attached to the Role Profile and complete your application directly from this, as these specifications are an integral part of the selection process.
