Become a Teacher

You do not need to have taught before  - we will provide you with all the support you need to become a successful teacher. EKC Group has a range of teaching opportunities  - including full and part time roles with flexible teaching hours, enabling you to continue working in your trade if that suits you.

We pride ourselves in the support we can give those who are new to teaching, with ongoing training and coaching through our Teacher Academy.

Are you looking to take the next move in your career? Perhaps you would like to give something back and share your experience and knowledge with students looking to move into your industry? Making the move into teaching within an FE environment, or assessing in the workplace could be a fantastic opportunity for you to do this.

You do not necessarily need to have taught, but you do need to have a passion for inspiring others to learn, as well as the desire to share your knowledge.

Flexible hours and days

Perhaps you are looking to work part time or as a guest Lecturer, or want to completely change your career, using the knowledge and experience you have to give something back. We can help you make that transition.

  • A holiday allowance of 42 days plus bank holidays, pro rata
  • Membership of the Teachers Pension scheme – which is contributory and includes  life assurance

Teacher Academy

Through the Teacher Academy, we are offering the chance for industry professionals to experience the work of a lecturer through short introduction courses and taster days, to enable people to make informed choices about possible teaching careers within the FE sector.

Taster days

A full or half day at a College with teaching staff will enable you to find out what it is like to work as a teacher at EKC Group. Staff already in role will be able to guide you through the opportunities available and answer questions you have about teaching.

Alternatively, you may want to initially have an informal chat to gain some advice.
