Protocol are pleased to present the opportunity for a Cyber Security and Networking Trainer/Assessor to join a dedicated faculty in a dynamic, vibrant and rewarding work environment!

Based on a modern college campus in South Yorkshire, this FE provider recognises that dedication to their staff, working both in and out of the classroom, is crucial to ensuring that their learners achieve their full potential. They are seeking to include a proactive and enthusiastic individual, with excellent interpersonal skills in their mission to be an outstanding provider of vocational qualifications! Your skills will be used to their full potential to deliver first class training and apprenticeship programmes.

This college is an exciting place to be! In recent times, they’ve enjoyed considerable success and their reputation for quality and innovation is growing all the time. This is evidenced by their Ofsted inspection which confirmed that they are an ‘Outstanding’ college.

The role is full-time and permanent, but we’d also like to hear from part-time applicants with expertise in Networking. It is desirable for the candidate to hold a teaching qualification and an assessors award, but knowledge of Cyber Security and Networking is paramount to this position, therefore we would encourage candidates who are new to teaching and assessing, but have excellent knowledge in either of these areas to apply!

The post holder will deliver practical elements of the apprenticeship to Level 4 digital apprentices (who are based within a 30 mile radius of the college) and provide excellent teaching, learning and assessment.

There is no end date to this recruitment, the college are looking to bring this role to interview as soon as possible, so if you are interested in this position, please don’t hesitate and attach your CV today to start a conversation with one of our consultants!
