Are you looking to down tools, had enough of travelling from site to site or simply looking to switch up your career? There are many reasons that you might consider making the switch from the construction site to the classroom but if you’re just at the beginning of this new avenue, you might not know exactly where to begin.

Education providers, including colleges and independent trainers, are crying out for experienced construction professionals to pass on their knowledge to the next generation. If you’ve ever supported a new colleague or apprentice, you could already have the skills to be a fantastic lecturer or assessor!

Gain your qualification on the job

Many of the organisations we work with will support you to gain your teaching qualification as you work, so you can start applying for roles immediately. Additionally, we have many external partners that are worth enquiring with if you want to gain your teaching or assessing qualification in your own time or if you’re looking for another course to allow you to make the step up into a management role.

CPD Opportunities

Additionally, We are also continually expanding our CPD offering, from the course with external partners mentioned above to our fantastic Learning Zone where you have free access to courses and videos to help you build your skillset further. That’s not to mention the ongoing support and aftercare provided by our brilliant recruitment teams who are always on hand to help, before, during and after we’ve found you a new role. 

Recently, we’ve also partnered with a number of leading organisations to host free webinars on topics ranging from Neurodiversity, Cultural Change, Inclusivity and Assistive Technology. Those are well worth an hour of your time! You can sign up to any of these webinars here.

Finally, if you’re looking for someone to chat to about your next career move, whatever that may be, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team! We’re more than happy to provide advice and assist wherever we can.
