We are Nottingham’s College and together, we make a positive difference to our learners, to our communities and to each other. We’re building better futures, for others and for ourselves. Our teachers bring experience, flair, industry connections, passion and care to their roles and in return we invest in them. Here, you have the freedom to work in a way that suits you, the support to thrive and the opportunity to shape your career.

Who we need

Our established Automotive department continues to grow and we are therefore seeking an enthusiastic automotive industry professional to join our teaching team. This is a part time student facing role, where we are happy to consider flexible working hours to support with an individual who wants to work around family or other work commitments.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a current mechanical professional to make a career change or a former industry professional to return to their passion, by moving into teaching, sharing their knowledge and experience with the industry professionals of tomorrow.

You may be an experienced tutor or assessor, looking to reduce your hours whilst embarking on a new challenge. Whatever your reason, this role will give you the opportunity to make a real difference. We are growing and developing our curriculum which requires passionate, industry experienced and committed individuals to help us achieve our goals and develop our faculty area.

The key roles of our Lecturers are:

· To bring your passion, knowledge and experience of the industry as well as your creativity to the teaching of both practical and theory sessions to learners from E3 to L2 in Light Vehicle Maintenance and Repairs.

· To work as part of our wider team to support the planning, development and implementation of new courses and qualifications as we continue to provide the local Automotive employers with their future employees.

· To work within the college quality framework to deliver education and training to high standards along with preparing student materials, assessing and marking student work and carrying out student assessments to ensure each student is achieving their best during their time in the college.

What you’ll bring

The successful candidate will be an Automotive lecturer who will want to work as part of a team, to equip our diverse range of students with the skills they need for their future, through the delivery of outstanding education. This role offers you the opportunity to do this every day and it is the job satisfaction that comes from this that makes teaching so special. You will bring:

· Your passion, knowledge and experience of the industry

· Your creativity to engage and enthuse our learners in both practical and theory sessions

· An understanding and appreciation of the key employability skills that the Automotive industry requires

Interviews / Assessments are planned for: 28th Nov 2023
