Are you an experienced Carpenter looking to pass on your skills to the next generation?

Or are you an experienced Carpentry & Joinery Lecturer/ Assessor looking for a new opportunity at a brilliant new Construction Skills Centre?

If so, we want to hear from you!

Designed specifically for apprentices, existing trades people and employers, the Bicester Construction Skills Centre is a professional environment which feels much more like a workplace than a college or school. Apprentices develop the workplace skills that we know are in high demand, like punctuality, team work and communication, whilst learning the very highest level of practical skills in brand new workshops with state of the art equipment and materials. Adults can upskill or re-certify in a professional environment, working alongside our experienced team of trainers who genuinely understand their industry.

Working as part of small, enthusiastic and highly-committed team you will work with level 2 and level 3 Carpentry and Joinery apprentices in the classroom and workshops and will also carry out assessments in the workplace. If you haven t taught or demonstrated practical skills before, then don t worry - no qualifications are necessary! We will help you to qualify if you want to - what we ask to start with is that you are enthusiastic and passionate about transferring your skills on to the next generation of industry professionals. We can teach you to teach!

If you are already an experienced lecturer, then our award-winning Teaching Skills Academy will help you to develop your teaching skills further and our Leadership Development Academy can support you into management, if that s your next step. Our small class sizes, new facilities and supportive friendly culture really help us to stand out as a Further Education employer - you will definitely notice the difference!
