Lecturer in Garden Design

Hadlow College

Part time, 18.5 hours per week

Location: Working across all sites of Hadlow College

We are looking to recruit a highly motivated lecturer to teach elements of garden design such as computer aided design (CAD) to the HND and Degree programmes. The successful candidate will also be available to support some of the practical horticulture, construction, CAD and garden design units of the Extended Diploma and RHS courses.

The majority of courses are held at the main Hadlow campus with occasional support required at one of the Outcentres (Mottingham and Canterbury). The successful candidate will need to be educated to at least Level 6 and have a relevant working experience in the industry of two or more of the following areas: CAD, garden design, landscape gardening, horticulture, landscape construction, landscape architecture, landscape contracting or landscape management.

In addition to the minimum requirements detailed above, candidates will ideally have teaching experience in a practical and/or classroom setting, together with a teaching qualification or the willingness to work towards one. Support is given to those who wish to train and as they work for the qualification, staff will receive a bonus of £600.00 in the third year and £750.00 in their fourth year, providing they have successfully gained their full teaching qualification at Hadlow College.

Applicants must show proof of a minimum Level 2 or equivalent in maths and English. Excellent communication, team work and IT skills are a must. Certificates in Assessing Vocational Achievement and A1/A2 (or D32 and D33) would also be advantageous.

As well as a contributory pension scheme, sponsorship for further vocational & teacher training, Corporate gym membership and free car parking, this post also attracts 7 weeks (pro rata) holiday each year (excluding bank holidays).
The successful candidate will be required to undertake an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Check and provide proof of their right to work in the UK. Where appropriate a prohibition check will be carried out.
