Group Launches Construction And Engineering Recruitment Drive
As part of its plans to grow its Construction and Engineering curriculum in line with industry demands, the Heart of Yorkshire Education Group is recruiting for a number of vacancies in these key areas.
The Group has recently seen significant expansion of its Construction and Engineering departments, following the launch of its brand-new range of Green Skills courses and development of new and enhanced facilities.
This includes a decarbonisation laboratory which emulates Carbon Capture procedures at Selby College, as well as the installation of Electric & Hybrid Vehicle training rigs and state-of-the-art Construction facilities at Castleford College.
To help shape and implement the educational strategy for the Group, Selby College is recruiting a Deputy Head of Curriculum for Engineering who will plan, develop and deliver a curriculum package which is responsive to the industry’s needs.
The successful candidate will also provide leadership for the development and delivery of engaging and industry relevant materials and resources to support curriculum development, and a high standard of teaching and learning.
To support the delivery of its wide range of programmes in Automotive, Construction and Engineering – including T Levels, Vocational Courses, Apprenticeships, Higher Education and Adult Courses - the Group is looking for Lecturers, Apprentice Reviewers and Workshop Facilitators.
Supporting students in developing their knowledge and skills, Selby College is recruiting for a Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering (Machining).
Current vacancies based at Castleford College, include:
• Curriculum Development Manager for Automotive
• Lecturer in Construction Craft – Bricklaying
• Lecturer in Engineering - Pneumatics & Hydraulics
• Lecturer in Electrical Engineering (two positions available)
• Lecturer in Fabrication & Welding
• Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering - Machinist
• Construction Apprentice Reviewer
• Workshop Facilitator - Motor Vehicle
• Workshop Facilitator - Mechanical Engineering
Sam Wright, Principal and Chief Executive at the Heart of Yorkshire Education Group, said:
“At the Heart of Yorkshire Education Group, we want our students to reach their full potential and even exceed their own expectations."
"Working in education gives you the opportunity to shape the futures of these students, passing on your knowledge, experience and passion – which is invaluable to their development and also contributes to the wider success of the local and national economy. These roles go beyond teaching, with candidates able to use their expertise to transform education by connecting it with the real-world and the skills needs of employers across the UK.”
Those who are qualified in their subject area but are new to teaching are also encouraged to apply, with the Group able to support candidates through a teaching training qualification.
Greg Clark, Head of Engineering and Motor Vehicle at the Heart of Yorkshire Education Group, said:
“I started my career as a Product Engineer and decided to make the switch to teaching, which was a great choice for me. There are many benefits to working in education as opposed to the industry; you have job security, a great pension contribution and generous annual leave, which allows me to spend more time with my children."
“Knowing that you are able to train the next generation of Engineers and positively transform their lives is incredibly rewarding. It’s also such an exciting time to be working in Automotive, Construction or Engineering at the Heart of Yorkshire Education Group, as we’re at the forefront of developing and delivering the Green Skills programmes and facilities which will help train the workforce of the future.”
