Lecturer in Engineering (Internship)

Loughborough College is introducing a Graduate Teaching Internship Programme commencing in the 2022-2023 academic year to encourage graduates in Engineering, or other subjects with a high proportion of Engineering, to consider a career in teaching. 

The programme offers graduates the opportunity to spend time working directly with young people and inspirational lecturers to gain hands on experience in a dynamic and vibrant College. The internships are designed to help people with a passion for Engineering, and a curiosity about the world of further and higher education, to assess whether teaching is a viable and long term career pathway for them. 

Each internship will be structured across two full academic years and will include a blend of work shadowing, teaching observations, team teaching and individual teaching. Each intern will be assigned a specific development mentor, usually an experienced lecturer, to support their development throughout the programme. In addition to gaining invaluable hands on experience, each intern will be supported to become a fully qualified teacher via attainment of the Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training over a two-year period. 

To be eligible to apply for a place on the scheme, candidates must hold a Level 3 qualification in Engineering, have a genuine passion for Engineering and interest in developing a career in teaching, and be able to commit to the programme for the minimum two year duration.
