Joining us as a Trainee Lecturer you must deliver excellent and inclusive teaching and learning in the classroom to inspire learners to succeed and progress. You will integrate appropriate and inspirational curriculum resources including ILT into lessons and plan delivery so that schemes of work, lesson plans, high-quality formative and summative assessments support achievement.

As part of the Taking Teaching Further programme, we are looking for people with excellent communication skills, drive and enthusiasm who would like to pass their knowledge and experience on to our students to ensure they receive the best possible learning experience.

The Taking Teaching Further programme has been developed to attract experienced industry professionals, with expert industry knowledge and skills, to work in FE. Their understanding of the latest skills, techniques, approaches and equipment has the potential to improve student outcomes.

Educated to degree level or equivalent in Games Art / 3D Digital Design or related subject, you must be willing to work towards a teaching qualification in Games Art/ 3D Digital Design.

Some industry experience is preferred however, the successful candidate must have a strong creative design knowledge of Adobe editing software and Blender. Knowledge of the UAL Creative curriculum would be advantageous.
