In this role, you'll work closely with our internal quality assurance team to ensure that the required accreditation standards are met and are to the satisfaction of the awarding body external verification.
You'll work in an agile way to support changing business requirements and any changes to the programme of Technical Training delivery.

You'll be an excellent communicator, both face to face and in writing and will be excellent at building professional working relationships with a wide variety of colleagues. We would ideally like a candidate with experience in coaching, teaching and assessing, however full training will be given to candidates who hold the relevant technical skills and can evidence the right potential to become a successful Trainer. You'll need to be highly organised and able to meet deadlines to allow you to plan and deliver training material.
