We’re on the lookout to find skilled tradespeople who want to swap the construction site for the classroom. If you’re a carpenter, electrician, plumber, painter, builder, or construction worker, we have your next challenge! 

At Protocol, we have over 25 years of experience in the education sector and have numerous recruiters who have previously worked in trade, so we completely understand the ins-and-outs of the construction and engineering industry. 

With the skills gap set to widen over the next decade, colleges and training providers are in desperate need of passionate and engaging teaching and support staff who can assist and encourage learners who are enthusiastically queuing up to learn a trade. 

Teaching qualifications not required!

Due to the nationwide shortage, many colleges and providers support their staff through essential qualifications on the job. So even if you don’t have a teaching or assessing qualification, you could still be eligible for a role. Because we are working with so many different providers across the UK, we know which ones would support you through this and where your unique skill set would be a good fit. 

Key benefits of downing the tools are: 
  • Reduced hours spent on a construction site 
  • Topped up income in preparation for retirement 
  • You’ll be inspiring the next generation of tradespeople 
  • You’ll be helping combat the skills shortage 

Downing tools and making the switch to the classroom might not seem like an obvious choice, but if you have extensive experience in the industry then you’ve more than likely managed many apprentices over the years, so working in a classroom could be the perfect fit for you! 

Check out our page about how we can support you in making the switch to education!
