WMG is a vibrant, cutting-edge research institution at the University of Warwick, providing research, education and knowledge transfer in engineering, manufacturing and technology.
As part of the rapidly growing Work Based Education team we are seeking to appoint another Senior Teaching Fellow (Apprenticeship Tutor) The appointee will work with the new Work based Education discipline group, the existing team of Apprenticeship Tutors, other colleagues and client organisations to develop the work-based learning elements of the programmes, and to provide pastoral, academic and work-related support to apprentices throughout their studies.
For this particular role, it would be beneficial to have some experience of working with technology and engineering companies, and also have the ability to teach on work based learning modules. Being able to balance teaching and administrative responsibilities – with significant experience in both areas – is essential, as is being able to sustain positive working relationships at a distance. You will need to be prepared to travel to companies (when appropriate to do so) to undertake reviews with apprentices and their line managers/mentors.
A high level of self-motivation, coupled with a confident approach to negotiation and relationship management are essential, together with an organised approach to all aspects of the programme, from supporting apprentice induction and monitoring of individual learners, to overall programme reporting requirements.
Reporting to Head of Work-based Education, but working closely with individual Programme Directors, this is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the further development of this relatively new role and to have a direct and personal impact on individual learners.
You will have a degree, and a qualification in teaching, learning development, coaching or mentoring, together with a positive outlook on this approach to learning. In return, we will provide a great range of benefits which include an attractive pension scheme, 30 days holiday plus Bank Holidays and Christmas closure, some fantastic savings on a wide range of products and services, and excellent learning and development opportunities.
At WMG we are committed to supporting staff to achieve their potential. We have recently gained the Athena SWAN Silver Award and the University of Warwick holds an Institutional Silver Award: a national initiative that recognizes the advancement of gender equality, representation, progression and success for all in academia. We are supportive of staff with caring responsibilities including a generous maternity/paternity/adoption/parental leave policy, and onsite childcare facilities. We will consider applications for employment on a part-time or other flexible working basis, even where a position is advertised as full-time, unless there are operational or other objective reasons why it is not possible to do so.
