We recruit engineers and academics from all backgrounds and teach them to train to become Dual Professionals. Training our armed forces is both rewarding and a privilege. We constantly ask ourselves "have we done the best we can do each and every day to ensure the soldiers we train have the opportunity to maximise their potential". To achieve this, our trainers need to be the best they can be; which means continually developing themselves, modernising the training delivered and contribute to providing the best learning experience and outcomes to those soldiers whilst ensuring we comply with OFSTED and supervisory care directives.
As a Course Designer you will work closely with Training Delivery staff and the Media team to design and develop automotive technical courses to be delivered to Military students. You'll also be required to work on the underpinning academic courses and management courses at REME Arms School.

What do I need to do the role?
You'll need a teaching or training background, technical knowledge in Automotive, ideally HNC/HND in Vehicle Mechanic discipline, excellent communication skills and have the ability to work alone but also with other members of the team to produce the courses required.
