Askham Bryan College is a specialist land-based college based across the North of England. Our campus at Newton Rigg is set in the heart of Cumbria.  The college owns over 20 ha of woodland, both broadleaf and conifer.


The College is dedicated to promoting education across the forestry sector in the UK.  The Department of Forestry wishes to recruit a new Course Manager to teach across a varied range of programmes in Forestry at Level 2 and 3.  The primary objective of this post will be supporting the development and delivery of technical skills in both forestry and associated land based courses. 


We are ideally looking for candidates with specialisms in the following:


  • Commercial Forestry
  • Land based Machinery
  • Silviculture
  • Estate Skills
  • Tree and Pest identification
  • Health and Safety
  • Tree and Timber Measuring
  • Practical Forestry Skills
  • Forestry Business
  • Timber Utilisation

The successful candidate will also be Course Tutor for a group of learners. Ideally qualified to Level 3 in Forestry, the successful candidate will have well-established work related experience. Teaching and assessing experience is desirable, as is a recognised teaching qualification but full training will be provided as part of professional development.


Above all, we are looking for someone with a strong understanding and competence in Forestry disciplines, and who has a real enthusiasm to pass on that knowledge and skill to others.


In return we offer a competitive remuneration, 35 days annual leave and genuine continuous professional development.
