Lecturing

Picked up some lecturing work at Loughborough Uni.'s Engineering Dept. yesterday, which will give me an opportunity to practice the teaching skills I will learn in the diploma course I start in September.

I've got an interview at another relatively local University next month to see if I can pick up a little more, I need at least 75 hours of UK based teaching time per year for the practical bit of the teaching course.

Sewage Treatment Plant Operation and Maintenace

Looks like we will be delivering the Sewage Treatment Plant Operation and Maintenance course in London come November. Spaces are available.

It will be being run two-handed between myself and a colleague who spent 20 years as a municipal plant manager and trade waste officer, so there will be a very practical slant.

Will have started the teaching course by then, so there will be an opportunity to integrate what I have learned into preparation of the course material.
