Role Title: Instructor Demonstrator in Landbased

Location: Llysfasi

Contract Type: Full Time, Permanent

Salary: £24,590 - £28,477

We currently have a vacancy for Instructor Demonstrator in Landbased.

As an Instructor Demonstrator at Coleg Cambria Llysfasi, the individual will deliver practical landbased education, imparting knowledge on estate work, tractor driving, agri/forestry machinery and sustainable forest management. Collaboration with academic staff is crucial to align hands-on forestry practices with the theoretical underpinnings provided in the classroom, and the role involves assessing students' application of skills in real-world landbased scenarios.

Additionally, the position entails an introduction to agricultural engineering principles, where the demonstrator will guide students through the basics of machinery used in both forestry and agriculture. This dual focus demands an up-to-date understanding of industry standards and a commitment to championing environmental stewardship alongside technological efficiency. The demonstrator's role is thus a blend of teaching core forestry practices and integrating essential agricultural engineering concepts, preparing students for the multifaceted nature of rural land management careers.

Essential Requirements
  • Qualified to a minimum of Level 3 or equivalent in a professionally relevant subject matter
