A well organised training and development professional with an engineering background is required to join our Research & Development team on a 12 month fixed term contract to work on a range of projects.
Applicants must be able to demonstrate in-depth knowledge and practical experience of all elements of the learning and development cycle in an engineering context including training needs analysis, curriculum development and course design through the application of recognised systematic learning and development processes. You could work on the development of qualifications and awards, investigating industry training needs, development of apprentice and occupational standards.
