No, you don't need a teaching qualification, just experience and passion.
First things first, you do not need a teaching qualification for this role. The education industry is changing, especially at further and higher education. We live in an age where people have access to an abundance of information at their fingertips; simply transferring knowledge from one individual to another doesn't cut it. The focus now is to find industry professionals who have a passion for education and can prepare aspiring food industry professionals for the careers ahead of them.
Apart from the aforementioned food industry experiment, which for the record can be from any classification or category, you can also come from academia; perhaps you have previously been involved in research. This is indeed an exciting opportunity and comes with some great benefits but it isn't without challenges, being a teaching position it is important that you are engaging, it is all well and good having a wealth of knowledge and years of experience but if you can't maintain the attention of the students you are teaching then all of that is redundant. So, if you have had experience of successfully training individuals, groups or even youths then that would be greatly beneficial.
Now, educational positions are never going to pay as well as the top food industry roles let’s be honest, but there are many reasons that this could be the right choice for you, whether that is work-life balance, length of service or just an overwhelming desire to teach and inspire. Whatever the reasons this is an exciting and rare opportunity, this will be the first time this establishment has taught a food & drink course and are opening a brand new facility to accommodation.
So, if you are looking for a change, apply now.
