Working Patterns

Hours of work can vary depending on whether you have a working

contract or not.

An average working week for an FE lecturer is 37 hours a week.

22 hours are spent teaching, while the other 15 hours is made of various

tasks such as grading, lesson planning and meetings with other faculty members.

Holidays are not based entirely around the students holidays. Many lecturers

are required to work throughout certain breaks. Media lecturers may also have to

work away on residential trips.

Another benefit of becoming qualified to teach FE is the TPI (Teacher

Pay Initiative).

The TPI guarantees that a qualified contracted worker will receive

a certain pay scale and hours of employment depending on their

stage of qualification.

SSP (Statutory Sick Pay) is also a benefit of a contracted FE lecturer.

The rate of pay varies. Different establishments pay different ways,

That can depend upon size of contract and time served. The standard

rate of SSP is currently £79.15 a week.

Obviously being an FE lecturer comes with responsibilities.

You have to make sure that you create a safe working environment for your students,

Where everyone feels welcome regardless of background or learning ability.

As a lecturer you have a responsibility to be punctual and have pre-planned


Suitable behavior is also a must. You must act appropriate at all times and never

overstep the boundaries of teacher and pupil.

Your lessons must be age appropriate and contain accurate information

As well as the students you must work as a team with other lecturers passing

on salient information, enabling the work place to run as efficiently as possible.

Responsibilities Cont….

You may be required to take tutorials, where you will have to deal with

students on a 1 on 1 basis.

Record keeping may be required as well as other administrative tasks such

as progress reports on students and quality assurance reviews.

Setting and thinking of briefs so that your students meet all the criteria they

Need to pass the course.

Interviewing potential students could also be a role you need to undertake.

Acting as a personal tutor and having to deal with a range of personal issues

that a student may have.

Being responsible for kit and scheduling for it.

You also need to keep learning, because everything that you know you

can pass on to others.

Obtaining Employment

Obtaining employment in this field is specialised. I would have to

apply to colleges who run media departments, 6th form colleges

or even prisons to try and find work.

As well as NWHC there are several other colleges in the Midland

area that run media courses.

There are courses running in:

Obtaining Employment Cont….

This is an extract from the connexions jobs4u website on employment

There are around 400 further education colleges in England and 200,000

full-time and part-time lecturers. Jobs are widely available and opportunities

exist in many towns and cities throughout England. Lecturers may also work

in prisons and with private training organisations.

Competition for posts varies according to the subject area and the part of country.

Temporary contracts and part-time work are common and a good way of getting in.

Jobs are advertised in The Times Educational Supplement, the Tuesday edition of

The Guardian, the websites of individual colleges and the local and regional press.

Targets & Self Promotion

In order to gain the qualifications needed to become an FE lecturer,

I will look for employment either full-time or part-time in that role.

I will send out my C.V. on paper and digitally in order to find work.

I feel that I have a number of abilities that would enable me to become

a good lecturer.

I feel I possess a wide ranging knowledge and enthusiasm for the

subject of media.

I can get on with people of all ages and backgrounds

I am confident in my own ability and am assured when talking to groups

of people.

364mc teaching as a career

Targets & Self Promotion Cont….

I am able to use the available equipment to a decent standard and

enjoy showing others what I know.

I also feel I am good at organising and helping others

I enjoy working with like minded people.

My experience of film making for myself is useful too and I have won

awards through doing it.


In conclusion I feel that teaching would benefit me mentally and

financially as there is a lot of room for progress in this field, if I am

willing to put in the time and effort. The college experience from my

own point of view as an adult learner has been a positive one, and I

hope to be able to pass that on to others.
