Are you ready to take your next step in your career?

We are passionate and dedicated in leading innovation and skills in our communities. Our commitment is to ensure we give our students the opportunities and inspire them to achieve their potential through outstanding quality of education and develop their skills for the future. This role is crucial in helping us to achieve this.

We recognise we need to change our ways of working and the Advanced Industry Skills Coaches will help us to do this. As a person who has industry skills knowledge and expertise you will help us to develop our sector curriculum specialism and campus USPs. We are keen to support you to make the transition from industry specialist to an Advanced Industry Skills Coach by offering flexible contracts (full time and pro rata) and professional development that helps you to develop the teaching skills you need to plan and deliver high quality education and training.

It is the job satisfaction that comes from this that makes this unique industry skills teaching role special. In this role you will use your expertise and technical skills to provide skills coaching and support students in practical workshop sessions and complete onsite assessments. These delivery models could include; Study Programmes (14-19 and Higher Education), Adult Education and Apprenticeships.

We want to support our local economy to restart and meet the needs of our employers by developing highly skilled local talent. To do this we need to work with industry experts and as an Advanced Industry Skills Coach, you will be imperative in coaching and tutoring our students to ensure they develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours they need to be successful in the future.


Have you got what it takes to be successful?

To be successful in this role you will need to have strong industry experience and knowledge of your chosen sector (engineering, construction, health or digital). You will be passionate about sharing this with our learners and be willing to develop your teaching / training skills in this area. You will either have, or be willing to gain experience of working with and coaching apprentices in line with the Apprenticeship Standards, or you may be looking at working with learners on our Higher Education programmes or adult learners instead.

Whichever path you take, you will be able to adopt a variety of different delivery methods to help our learners develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours they need to be successful in the future.

You will hold a vocationally relevant qualification at level 3 or higher, as well as key literacy and numeracy qualifications. You will have, or be willing to work towards a teaching qualification and a Google Educator Level 1. You may also have an IT qualification and/or an assessment qualification, but if not, then we will support you to achieve these too. 

In this dynamic and innovative role, you will work flexibly through the year to ensure we meet the needs of all of our students and employers. This is a new, flexible way of delivering a multi-offer curriculum to our students and as a result this means you will have less fixed hours/days of work to meet student and employer needs. You will also be able to plan your teaching around your current industry role, should you wish to do so.
