Be more as a WA TAFE lecturer.

Teach the next generation your industry skills.

We are seeking experienced and innovative individuals who are passionate about sharing their industry skills with the workforce of the future. No prior lecturing experience or training qualifications are required.

TAFE lecturers have an important role in delivering training excellence and mentorship, equipping students with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in their career pathway. As a lecturer, you will use your industry experience to teach skills employers want, providing a unique and innovative learning experience.

Keep your network connections alive by collaborating with local businesses and industry to ensure your training programs, and the skills taught to students, are current and relevant.

You must be digitally savvy and able to support the administration tasks associated with the role. Lecturers are required to hold or obtain a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment TAE40116 (or equivalent) to deliver accredited vocational education and training in accordance with the Registered Training Organisation Standards. Applicants who do not have this qualification are strongly encouraged to apply and are still eligible for appointment from this process. We support our employees through free in-house training and up to 160 hours of working time to attain the qualification.
