Detail information about job Graduate Level Apprenticeship (Engineering) Workbased Learning Assessor (87352). Terms and conditions vacancy
FTE: 0.4 (14 hours/week)*Term: Fixed (12 months)The Faculty of Engineering at the University of Strathclyde is one of the largest and most successful engineering faculties in the UK, and the largest in Scotland. As a leading international technological university, Strathclyde University is recognised for its world class research, knowledge exchange and educational programmes.
The University of Strathclyde in partnership with key stakeholders has led the development of the Graduate Level Apprenticeship Engineering: Design and Manufacture degree apprenticeship (GLA EDM). This degree programme is designed for learners employed full time within an engineering function in industry and consequently a significant proportion of the indicative student workload will be credit bearing workbased learning.
The Faculty of Engineering is seeking to recruit a number of qualified and experienced workbased learning assessors with an engineering background to support the delivery and assessment of the integrated workbased learning elements of the 4 year degree programme.
You will be involved in all aspects of the workbased learning activities including the provision of initial learner training on the use of the e-portfolio, development of individual learning plans, supporting workbased learners, assessing of workbased learning activities.
To be considered for the role you must hold the SVQ Assessor Qualification (L&D9DI) and ideally the SVQ Internal Verifier Qualification (L&D11) and have the required background in either Mechanical Engineering (or related discipline) or Electrical and Electronic Engineering (or related discipline) to allow for the assessing of various learners at SCQF level 7 within Scotland. You will also have substantial years of experience of observing and assessing candidates in their workplace including:
- developing individual learning plans
- interviewing candidates and examining their portfolios of evidence
- providing feedback and offering advice
- keeping records of candidates' progress
- liaising with industry supervisors and developing learner support strategies.
Due to the nature of the role, candidates must be willing and able to work flexibly both in terms of time and location, including the ability to visit learners off-campus. You will be required to travel to meet learners within their place of work and must have a current driving licence with access to own vehicle.
*Contract offered is nominally 0.4FTE but there is some flexibility in the FTE depending on the candidate(s) appointed. Hours may be annualised depending on the requirements of the role.
