Do you have expertise in Project Management, Leadership or Advanced Industrial Skills? Do you have a contribution to make to the University of Cumbria’s developing work with Industry?

We are looking for experienced trainers, lecturers, academics, consultants, work based assessors/mentors and practitioners/ managers who have a background of working, leading, training or educating, in industrial settings. If this is you then we are keen to hear from you.

The University of Cumbria has significantly developed its capability and relationship with nuclear and other industrial sectors over the past three years. These relationships have accelerated, particularly in the areas of Project Management and Transformative Leadership, and have been supported by the University’s role, as contract leader, in delivering the “Project Academy for Sellafield”. The University was recognised in 2017 for this work, receiving the NDA Award for Building Capacity in the Nuclear Supply Chain and has recently secured contracts to deliver education and training to Rolls-Royce and BAE in Project Management.

We are committed to making a relevant offer to industry in the region, alongside our more technical or ‘hard skills’ offer, and we are looking to further develop and grow our activity, working with a wider range of employers. Whilst the core of our activity will be in Cumbria and the North West, we are developing niches of activity with employers across the country.

Our new Institute for Industrial Practice will act as a portal for industry and employers to the University, providing access to applied transformative learning and education, research and development skills. Our focus will be on Project Management, Industrial Skills and Transformative Leadership, Engineering/Applied Industrial Skills, Human Behaviours and Coaching.

We are looking to develop and work closely with a broad team of associate staff who can support the delivery of activities across the broad subject areas covered by the Institute, as the work of the Institute further develops in the future both in Cumbria and the North West, and nationally.
