Hours: Part Time
Contract Type: Permanent

The Faculty of Engineering is seeking to recruit a qualified and experienced work-based Learning Adviser, with an engineering background, to join a team of Learning Advisers who support the graduate apprentices in the development of their professional competencies to the level of Incorporated Engineer.

FTE: 0.6 (21 hours/week)

The University of Strathclyde in partnership with key stakeholders has led the development of the Graduate Apprenticeship Engineering: Design and Manufacture degree apprenticeship (GA EDM) programme. This 4-year BEng (Honours) degree programme is designed for learners employed full time within an engineering function in industry and consequently a significant proportion of the indicative student workload will be credit-bearing, work-based learning. The Faculty of Engineering is seeking to recruit a qualified and experienced work-based Learning Adviser with an engineering background to join a team of Learning Advisers that collectively support the delivery and assessment of the integrated work-based learning elements of the GA EDM degree programme.

You will be involved in all aspects of the work-based learning activities including the provision of initial learner training on the use of the e-portfolio (Pebble Pad), development of individual learning plans, monitoring online learner engagement, supporting work-based learners and assessing work-based learning activities. The role requires the ability to establish and maintain effective professional relationships with a range of stakeholders including industry employers, work-based learners, GA EDM staff and other work-based learning advisers. Engagement with work-based learners and employer organisations will be conducted through a blended approach involving some occasional travel to employer sites and the frequent use of technology platforms.

To be considered for the role of Learning Adviser (£36,024 - £44623) you must hold the SVQ Assessor Qualification (L&D9DI -Assess Workplace Competence Using Direct and Indirect Methods) and ideally the SVQ Internal Verifier Qualification (L&D11) and must have the required background in either Mechanical Engineering (or related discipline) or Electrical and Electronic Engineering (or related discipline) to allow for the assessing of various learners up to SCQF level 10 within Scotland. You will also have experience of observing and assessing candidates in their workplace including:

  • Developing individual learning plans and learner study plans.
  • Interviewing graduate apprentices and examining their portfolios of evidence
  • Keeping records of candidates' progress
  • Liaising with industry supervisors and developing learner support strategies.

You must be able to demonstrate highly developed communication skills and good team working skills in order to work with the University of Strathclyde GA EDM programme team and communicate effectively with learners and employers. You must possess IT skills appropriate for supporting learners at a distance. Due to the nature of the role, candidates must be willing and able to work flexibly both in terms of time and location, including the ability to visit learners off-campus.

Depending on professional experience it may be possible to offer appointment as a trainee Learning Adviser role at Grade 6 (£31,396-£34,980) and for the appointee to be supported in gaining experience in work-based learning assessment within a university setting whilst completing the required Assessor qualification.

There may be potential to flex the hours to meet the requirements of either the Learning Adviser or Trainee Learning Adviser role and also to offer a variety of part time contract options.

Informal enquiries about the post can be directed to Dr Susanne Boyle, GA EDM Programme Leader, (Email: Susanne.boyle@strath.ac.uk).
