This position predominantly involves teaching Level 2 and Level 3 learners, providing them with the knowledge and practical skills required in the field of Engineering.

Administration is a cornerstone of this position, with the lecturer responsible for maintaining accurate and comprehensive records such as registers, schemes of work, and course review documentation. A commitment to quality assurance and continuous improvement is paramount, as the lecturer will be involved in the organisation's self-assessment procedures, external and internal verification activities, and teaching observations.
