Permanent | Full Time Hours with flexible working patterns available
Our Technical Training centres based in Thatcham and Perth deliver training to around 3000 learners per year across a wide range of technical disciplines and we're looking for a Cable Jointing Trainer/Instructor to join our Perth team.
In this role, you will support and guide trainees and apprentices with their practical skills and trade test assessments for the full range of Cable Jointing competencies. This will involve providing theoretical knowledge as well as Operational Authorisation Rules and the provision of demonstrations and guidance to trainees in best practice jointing techniques.
Preparing and developing training programmes will play a vital part of your role to ensure that all learning needs are met in a safe working environment. Your responsibilities will also extend to training and assessing experienced Cable Jointers as part of their refresher courses and mid-term reviews.
Your Skills and Experience
Excellent communication skills, both face to face and in writing will be pivotal to your success in this role as is the ability to build strong professional working relationships with a wide variety of colleagues at varying levels of development and professionalism. You must be highly organised with the ability to meet deadlines to allow you to plan and deliver the required training materials in a timely and proficient manner.
Previous coaching/teaching/assessment experience in a similar environment would be beneficial, 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 must have current HV and LV jointing experience and should preferably hold or have held a DNO authorisation to support this. Qualifications to instruct and assess would be a benefit, however training will be provided (Level 3 Award in Education and Training and TAQA Assessor Qualification or equivalent).
