We’re looking for an individual experienced in facilities management and programme delivery to develop and drive our new Facilities Management apprenticeship provision!

University College of Estate Management (UCEM) is the leading provider of supported online education for the Built Environment. Currently celebrating our 100th year as an institution, we have a wealth of history and experience in providing the highest quality learning opportunities. At any one time, we have over 3,500 students from more than 100 countries benefiting from our qualifications.  UCEM helps to enhance Built Environment professional careers through our accredited property-related and construction programmes, offered at Postgraduate, Undergraduate and Apprenticeship levels. Our centenary year has inspired our new vision to be the Centre of Excellence for Built Environment Education, appropriately abbreviated ‘CX’ to help us look to the future and lead our strategy for the next 10 years. This is all to achieve our core purpose of providing accessible, relevant and cost-effective online education, producing leading talent for a better Built Environment.

You will be responsible for the development, management and continuous improvement of UCEM Facilities Management Apprenticeship programmes, so they’re effectively planned, developed, promoted and delivered to the highest quality. You must ensure this provision not only meets the industry/employer needs and requirements, but also motivates and engages apprentices to achieve success, enabling them to progress beyond even their own expectations. Your accountabilities will include recruitment and management of tutors/assessors; reviewing of non-standard applications; continuous programme review; KPI reporting and management; quality assurance; and budget management.

Initially the role will focus in the development and implementation of the Level 3 Facilities Management Supervisor Apprenticeship but will extend to other facilities management apprenticeships as UCEM’s provision grows.

Key qualities we’re looking for include:

  • Relevant professional body membership (or willingness to attain)
  • Quality Assurance qualification (or willingness to attain)
  • Minimum Level 2 Maths and English (or willingness to attain)
  • Experience in Facilities Management discipline
  • Demonstrable experience in curriculum planning and development (FE and/or HE)
  • Quality monitoring experience
  • Impeccable communication skills
  • Strong analytical skills
  • Financial planning and management skills
  • Intermediate IT skills and passion in using technology to enhance learning

A bachelor’s or post graduate degree and recognised teaching qualification is desirable, but not essential.

At UCEM we expect all our employees to demonstrate our values: Passion, Integrity, Excellence and Support.
