About Swindon College:

Swindon College prides itself in offering opportunities for learners who may have been overlooked by the mainstream. We love what we do passionately, and who we do it for. Our approach puts the learner first through delivering differentiated teaching, encouraging a growth mind-set, and by supporting our students to overcome obstacles to achieve success.

There will be career opportunities with us as we grow. The College has just secured a £21 million bid for Government-backed Institute of Technology funding. In partnership with the University of Gloucestershire (and other local anchor partners) we are committed to delivering a step-change in the availability of high quality professional and technical education in advanced manufacturing and engineering, life sciences, digital technologies, and creative media.


About this role:

This is an exciting teaching post, delivering our plumbing courses within the growing construction faculty.  You’ll help inspire and develop our students to become excellent professionals, covering areas such as central heating systems, hot and cold water systems, common plumbing processes and sanitation. You’ll draw upon your experience of working in the commercial sector to teach our students all they need to know. This is certainly a varied role, where you’ll lead on workshops, carry out classroom teaching and conduct one-to-one tutorials.


In this role you’ll:

  • Share your industry knowledge with our learners
  • Design new resource materials for our students
  • Teach, produce schemes of work, and lead on moderation


You’ll have:

  • Level 5 Teaching qualification
  • Level 3 qualification in plumbing or equivalent
  • ACS Gas Certification (desirable, not essential )
  • Level 2 English and maths (or equivalent)
  • Substantial knowledge of both plumbing and gas systems
  • Industry based delivery experience

The qualifications stated are our preference but we will consider candidates that fall outside of these requirements if you can strongly demonstrate the required industry competencies with a willingness to get stuck into doing your Teaching qualification with us.


Your Benefits:

Self-directed, highly flexible working hours to support your work/life balance

Access to the market leading Teacher Pension Scheme

47 days annual leave (inclusive of all discretionary and bank holidays)

Wellbeing and Lifestyle support including access to our market leading Employee Benefits Platform, free access to on-site gym facilities, eye care voucher schemes and dental plan
