College encourages engineers and construction workers to move from industry to education – FE News


QUALIFIED engineers, builders and professionals are being encouraged to consider the future of education.

Coleg Cambria is hosting a recruitment event at its Institute of Technology in Deeside on Wednesday (July 13) from 5pm to 7pm.

Following the success of last week’s Digital Manufacturing Skills Expo, which brought together over 200 individuals and companies Medru is a factory of skills – the institution is looking to recruit experienced workers from industry to meet the demand for lecturers, technicians and instructors at its sites across North East Wales.

“The popularity of our courses and the overall employment landscape means we need more teachers across the board in aerospace, electrical, automotive, agriculture, manufacturing and more,” said Nick Tyson, associate director of technology, engineering and construction.

“We have close links with the private sector and place great importance on ensuring that our students are ‘ready’ for work after their studies with us, so finding candidates with relevant experience is very important.

“For anyone looking to change careers, this is a viable and sustainable option as it allows them to continue to improve their skills while supporting future generations of engineers through the training and wide range of courses we offer.

“And don’t worry if you don’t already have a teaching qualification, we can help you get one here in Cumbria.”

Cambria’s director of human resources, Diane Joly, added: “The pandemic has forced many people to take a hard look at their work and reassess the direction they are taking.

“Coleg Cambria is one of the leading colleges in the country and is at the heart of the industry in this region, so being able to play a role in educating and inspiring young people is an attractive proposition.

“Whether they’re workers approaching retirement age or those with fewer years behind them but looking for new opportunities, this could be the change you’re looking for.”
