I have everything they are asking for on the person spec apart from the recent industry experience.
but it might be fine for FE - what are the qualifications etc asked for in the job specification/person spec? The only thing which might be problematic is 8 years primary teaching, but I;m sure you could show how that has deepened your pedagogical skills & expertise.
It is an FE college post, I have a PGCE and taught adults EFL and Business English and trained teachers for 8 years before primary teaching. No I haven't got any research interests. Thanks for your advice it doesn't look good, does it.
I'm assuming this is a lecturer job at a university not an FE college?
How do your qualifications stack up against the job spec and person spec? If it's a good university, they'll be using those to create the short list & they'll assess candidates at interview against those specifications. Most lectureships require a PhD but it may be different for a vocatonal course.
Do you have any research interests or evidence of advanced research in the area advertised? Do you have a postgrad qualification? Have you kept up with some freelance work? What's your experience of teaching adults?
8 years out of the industry, and in such a different sector, may not be something you can overcome straight away. You may need to establish a track record of recent work in the field. Could you teach an evening class for your local WEA or FE college (a bit like City Lit)?
I wouldn't have thought so but it would depend on the institution you'd be applying to
Hi there..is there any point in me applying for a media lecturer job given that I have all the qualifications but no recent industry experience apart from the media teaching included in my 8 year role as a primary teacher?
