IMechE - TEACH PART TIME IN FURTHER EDUCATION ALONGSIDE YOUR ENGINEERING CAREER

19th March 2024 12:00 pm

This lunchtime session with the Department for Education explores how qualified engineers can teach part time in Further Education (FE) alongside their careers. If you’re interested in sharing your skills with the next generation, you could make a great FE teacher. Attend this session and Q&A to learn more.

Further education is any formal learning for those aged 16+ that is not a degree and covers a wide range of subject areas including engineering. Further education teachers play a vital role in preparing their students to enter the workforce.

If you’ve got real-world experience in the engineering sector and a passion for sharing your skills, you could make a great FE teacher. Teaching in FE can be flexible and may appeal to those looking for new development opportunities alongside their current career, those nearing retirement but wanting to stay connected to their industry, or people seeking a less physical role within their sector. You don’t always need a prior teaching qualification to start teaching in FE. Many industry professionals teach part-time and complete teaching training on the job, meaning they can start earning straight away.

During the session, Katherine Barlow, Policy Lead for the Teach in Further Education team at the Department for Education, will discuss what teaching in FE is, the purpose of the campaign and the support available to you. We’ll also hear from Rosa Wells, a Mechanical, Manufacturing and Aeronautical Engineering FE teacher, who will share her real experiences of teaching in FE and be available to answer questions you may have.

Confirmed webinar speakers:

  • Katherine Barlow, Policy Lead for the DfE Teach in Further Education team
  • Rosa Wells, Mechanical, Manufacturing and Aeronautical Engineering FE teacher
  • Jelena Gacesa, Education Outreach and Safeguarding Lead
