Solihull College & University Centre is at the forefront of innovation across two excellent campuses. With strong links to top employers across a range of industries, the College ensures its courses are tailored to continuously evolving industry needs.

The College continues to invest in excellent facilities for its learners, with industry-standard science laboratories and virtual reality equipment recently introduced at Blossomfield Campus and the Centre for Advanced Aeronautical Provision featuring flight simulators and a former Royal Navy Aircraft at Woodlands Campus. School leavers, apprentices, university level and adult learners can thrive in facilities unmatched in the region.

The College aims to make significant contributions to the West Midlands economy and beyond by providing high quality vocational education and training for students, employers and the wider community. Serving over 8,000 students and over 700 members of staff, the College is proud of its strong reputation within the education sector.

Staff possess the expertise and drive to ensure students leave the College with the skills necessary to make their mark in their chosen industry or progress to the next level in their education.

The Applied Science curriculum area is a dynamic and growing area, having recently received a total remodelling of the classrooms and laboratory areas.  It provides a range of outstanding courses from Level 2 to Level 6, including the FdSc and BSc (Hons) in Applied Biosciences which have been developed to help local employers, such as the NHS Trusts, fill their skills gaps.  The key focus in the curriculum area is to provide learners with both the practical scientific and laboratory skills to complement their academic development, increasing their employability and potential for success in future study.

We are currently looking to appoint an enthusiastic and experienced Chemistry and Biochemistry Lecturer to join a highly-dedicated team, delivering science courses across a range of courses from Level 3 to 6. The successful candidate will hold a post-graduate qualification in Biochemistry or a related discipline.  They will have the ability to work proactively and inspire students within this subject area.  The ability to teach across a broad range of topics within this subject area, such as Organic Chemistry, Microbiology or Pharmacology, would be advantageous.
