Are you skilled in Electrical/PLC within the Engineering industry?

Have you got experience teaching or would you love to make the move into teaching?

Do you want to help to develop the next generation of Engineers?



If so, then we have the perfect role for you!


Training 2000 is at the heart of the Lancashire economy, developing talent and training the next generation. We are growing and an exciting opportunity has arisen for the post of PLC/Electrical Instructor.


If you haven’t already heard of us, we are part of the University of Central Lancashire Group and have over 50 years’ experience of delivering high quality technical and professional training programmes to industry and individuals.


We have a strong heritage, skilled workforce, state of the art facilities and above all a great team ethos. We are on a mission to deliver learning excellence and create outstanding talent for Lancashire and beyond and we firmly believe our people are our biggest asset in achieving this. Our customers are diverse and their businesses varied, from micro businesses such as Dental Practices to global companies such as Chubb.


The role that we are recruiting for is part of our Centre Workshop team and therefore, you will be joining a team of Instructors who all have a wealth of knowledge within Engineering and teaching our apprentices.


We’re looking for a PLC/Electrical Instructor that will deliver both practical and theoretical learning sessions that cover vocational and work related skills relative to the sector.   You will be responsible for ensuring that you effectively support our learners through their qualification and will have a specialism in PLC/Electrical to pass on your knowledge and skills.


We are looking for someone with a strong engineering background who holds an appropriate Engineering qualification and a background of PLC/Electrical Engineering is essential. Our ideal candidate will have teaching and assessing experience although this is not essential as we will be able to provide development for the right individual to gain these skills and qualifications.


In return, you will join a fantastic team of Engineering Instructors at an exciting time as our Engineering team are focusing on how we can grow this department further. You will be surrounded by a highly skilled team who will help you embed into your new role as you all work towards creating future talent for the Engineering industry.


For this role, you will receive a salary of up to £30,000 and a competitive benefits package. In addition, we believe in providing more than just salary and benefits and we’ll give you time and support to develop your career.  Our Electrical Instructors continually develop themselves and we’re in the process of developing a learning and development strategy with dedicated CPD days to ensure our whole workforce can continually enhance their career.


To give you an idea of our benefits, we firmly believe in having a good work life balance and therefore, they include 27 days annual leave plus bank holidays. This entitlement will increase with over time to 32 days and you are also able to purchase up to 5 days extra per year. In addition to this, from the day you join, you will receive life assurance whilst employed at 4 x your annual salary. Finally, with pensions being an important part of people’s career, following 6 months service you will be entitled to enrol into our Group Private Pension scheme where we will match contributions up to 5%.


We firmly believe that everyone is unique in their own way and we are looking for people from all walks of life who will join our inclusive culture. We are committed to equality, diversity and access for all which makes Training 2000 a great place to work.


Safeguarding of our learners is at the heart of everything that we do. Therefore, due to having children (under 18’s) on our site, all appointments are subject to the receipt of a satisfactory enhanced child workforce disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS; formally the CRB), or a check via the Update Service on a relevant enhanced disclosure. Further information on these checks can be obtained from the Government website.


If this sounds like the kind of role and place for you then we are really excited to hear from you. If you’d like an informal discussion ahead of applying, please contact a member of our HR team on 01254 54659 and they will be more than happy to help.
