UHI Perth is one of Scotland’s leading Tertiary Education institutions, and one of the largest partners in the University of the Highlands and Islands. As part of the UHI we deliver vocational and academic qualifications from SCQF Level 3 through to SCQF Level 12 and provide bite sized chunks of training and education through transition, upskilling, reskilling, second skilling and skills academies.
We are looking to recruit a Lecturer in Carpentry and Joinery to join our growing team of teaching staff to support and deliver education and training to full-time, part-time, National Progression Awards, Schools, Foundation and Modern Apprenticeship courses. The past few years have seen a substantial increase in applications for all Built Environment, Construction Crafts and Building Services curricula and commercial deliverables and this expansion has created the requirement for extra teaching staff.
The campus is well resourced to deliver a sector leading and innovative learning experience in carpentry and joinery with a well-balanced mix of classrooms and practical training workshops.
Within your specialisation, you will be responsible for preparing materials for learning, teaching and assessment; for the teaching of theory, practical elements, supervising of student work; and contributing to the development of the Built Environment, Construction Crafts and Building Services curricula.
You should hold an advanced craft qualification in carpentry and joinery. An HNC/D in Construction, or similar, would be essential. Training will be provided for the successful candidate.
In addition to the above, you should be a well-motivated self-starter with good communication skills who is able to work effectively within a team. A strong customer- focus and an awareness of high standards is required in the construction industry and you should have a passion and drive to be an effectual and innovative contributor to the continued success of this department.
Previous teaching experience is not essential for candidates with appropriate industrial experience.
