We have some exciting opportunities available at Barking and Dagenham College. Do you want to help develop the next generation? Then this may be for you!

We are looking for motivated, learner- centered and outstanding Lecturer- Plumbing.

You will deliver training and assessment activities to a range of learners on our full time and part time programmes and liaise with external agencies as appropriate with regard to the delivery of the Plumbing curriculum. ​​​​​​​The delivery focus for this role will be on training apprentices and practical skills.

You must hold a Level 3 qualification as a minimum, have experience of working as part of a team, and previous success of working in the Plumbing industry.

You will have worked with systems and equipment in a wide range of environments, whilst embedding the development of skills (English, Maths and IT) at Levels E3-L3 in all teaching practice, and contribute to work experience activities.

To be successful you need to demonstrate excellent communication and interpersonal skills, you will be able to teach at a level appropriate to the students and in a way that recognises their different learning abilities. Knowledge and understanding of current curriculum changes and the implications for learning strategies in Plumbing is a must, as is the ability to teach and assess Plumbing practices in either a teaching or learning environment or in the workplace.

A teaching qualification and an assessor’s award is also essential. An internal verification award would be an advantage to assist with the quality process and standards of the awarding bodies.
