ENGINEERING APPRENTICESHIP TUTORS
(Mechanical, Welding or Bench Work)
Start date: Monday, 21 August 2017
Salary: £26,119-£39,023 per annum
The JCB Academy was established in September 2010, the first of a brand new kind of school in the UK, with a focus on delivering high-quality engineering and business education.
Since opening we have been consistently successful - our first Ofsted inspection, in May 2014, recognised us as a “Good” school with “outstanding” features, including progress in mathematics, engineering and vocational courses and the dedication to keeping students safe and secure. Pupil numbers are growing - we have been oversubscribed every year, including for entry this September. Currently we cater for c. 580 students aged 14-18 as well as c. 300 students aged 16+ following apprenticeships. We have exciting plans to expand further due to the demand for places.
Apprenticeships at The JCB Academy
The JCB Academy has been delivering apprenticeships since 2013. We have grown in size as a provider of engineering apprenticeships since then and we will have 170 engineering apprenticeship starts in the summer of 2017 across our programmes.
The apprenticeship programmes focus around engineering specialisms particularly Fabrication and Welding, Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering at Craft, Technician and Engineer levels. We focus on developing technical and academic skills, ensuring these have the competency level expected by our employer partners. Our overall aim is to give all learners the skills and attributes that add value to both themselves and their employers as soon as possible.
The programmes are supported by high class facilities in all areas and we have made significant investment in developing our infrastructure. This is an exciting and challenging time for the programmes as we prepare to move away from delivering frameworks and prepare to engage in delivering apprenticeship standards. To support this we are due to move to a bespoke facility that will have brand new state of the art Mechatronics, Metrology, Engineering Science and CAD facilities.
We are looking for three dynamic and inspirational individuals that are specialists in either Mechanical, Welding or Bench Work. You will plan, deliver and manage the assessment of Level 2 and 3 BTEC units. This is a fantastic opportunity to work in partnership with some of the biggest names in engineering and design and to be at the forefront of curriculum innovation.
If you have experience and an engineering aptitude and can demonstrate that you have the potential to deliver high quality teaching we would love to hear from you. This may be your first teaching position or you may be an experienced tutor eager for a new challenge and the opportunity to work in a unique environment with fantastic facilities. You must have a passion for developing engineers of the future.
If successful, you will:
- Set high expectations and foster a culture of continuous improvement.
- Work collaboratively with the other tutors to develop and deliver an engaging engineering curriculum.
- Benefit from working with small class sizes, outstanding engineering workshop facilities and cutting edge ICT.
- Have access to superb professional development and a competitive salary.
- Work in a supportive environment with professionals who are down-to-earth and committed to the aims of the academy.
