Hub Coordinator Engineering Degree Apprenticeship

This is a unique opportunity to be involved with the introduction of New Zealand’s first Degree Apprenticeship Programme.

The Hub Coordinator will be responsible for growing Engineering Technology degree apprentice numbers through developing closer relationships between employers, current and potential apprentices and WelTec staff and employers involved with WelTec’s Bachelor in Engineering Technology Apprenticeship programme.

This will include coordinating industry and apprentice contacts, record keeping and reporting activities between the School, WelTec’s support services and the wider engineering industry.  The position will involve direct contact with apprentices and staff on employers’ work sites and the WelTec campus.

The position plays an important role in the overall learning environment for apprentices undertaking degree level studies, however, the position has no direct academic responsibility for apprentice progression and assessment (those responsibilities being retained by designated WelTec academic staff).

Applicants will ideally have:

  • Practical experience and strong understanding of employer demands in the engineering industry e.g. engineering consultancies, local/regional authorities and infrastructure owners.
  • Experience of working in a tertiary learning environment, preferably including the areas of industry liaison, mentoring and/or apprentice support.
  • A good knowledge of the use of databases and reporting systems

The role is based at WelTec’s main campus in Petone but will involve travel to employer worksites within the region. Applicants will be required to pass a Police Vetting Check in order to work with young people and should hold a current driver’s licence.

Key attributes for the role are good communication skills, a positive attitude towards learner engagement and success and a reasonable level of physical fitness. If you would like to make a strong contribution to a dedicated and friendly team within a progressive educational environment we would like to hear from you.
