Local experts can pass on their knowledge through new associate lecturer roles
Industry experts from Peterborough and the wider region are being encouraged to pass on their skills and knowledge to the next generation at the city’s new university, ARU Peterborough.
Since opening in September 2022, ARU Peterborough has offered a range of courses that provide the qualifications needed by local industry and organisations.
Now, with a second teaching building on course to open later this year, ARU Peterborough is looking to complement its talented academic staff with a small team of specialist associate lecturers, who will be able to share industry-specific knowledge, helping to further boost students’ employability skills and careers awareness.
ARU Peterborough is hoping to hear from people currently working in the following sectors: biomedical science, business management, computing, construction and civil engineering, electronic engineering, environmental science, gaming, law, mathematics, mechanical engineering, primary education, public health, social work, and supply chain management.
Dr Esther Norton, Assistant Principal at ARU Peterborough, said:
