Contract Type
Full Time
Experienced, Successful Lecturer, yet disengaged and perhaps even, disenchanted with Mainstream HE/FE?

Highly skilled Network or Software Engineer, who wants to impart their knowledge onto the next generation of Technical Learners?

Perhaps you're a blend of the two, and are simply ready for a change. Perhaps you feel like you've moved so far away from the 'hands on' learning, you simply want to feel as though you are impacting the learning & development once again, rather than being bogged down by the weight of policy and procedure.

Either way, we need you, or should I say, my client, needs you.

A dynamic Training Provider, ground-breaking in its approach, offers an alternative approach to Apprenticeship Programmes, offers its learners a genuine, quality alternative to University, raising the bar in education standards.

It works together with the British Computer Society, and the University of Wolverhampton, to deliver the following Apprenticeship Programmes (2 year courses):

• Software Engineer

• Network Engineer

• IT Consultant

• Cyber Security Specialist

• Business Analyst

• British Computer Society Apprenticeships

• Infrastructure Technician

• Network Engineer

• Software Developer

It recognises the value in engaging industry skilled individuals that can support apprentices through their learning, enabling them to bring

their teaching to life.

As a Technical Coach, you'll coach individuals, both on and off site (Head Offices are in Worcester, where you'll need to be every Monday, at least) in their employer environment or indeed within Training Delivery Centres. With a focus on quality training provision, you'll have no more than 15 learners in any cohort.

To be considered for the role, and what's more, succeed in the role, you'll have a strong academic background, preferably having studied in a relevant subject area, to Degree level or higher. You'll need to be expert in the following subject areas:

• Software Development Lifecycle

• Agile and Waterfall software development methodologies

• How teams work effectively to produce software and contributes appropriately

• Software design approaches and patterns

• Maths required to be a software developer (e.g. algorithms, logic and data structures)

Training qualifications naturally, would be advantageous, as would any experience in delivering coaching/training in apprenticeships, but equally important is industry experience, an ability to engage others and a desire to succeed.

You'll be rewarded by a competitive salary, holidays, pension plan and mileage (you'll be travelling between Worcester and Birmingham offices, as well as to employer locations across the West Midlands) plus support through qualifications needed by company.
