Higher education (HE) lecturers teach the next generation of construction professionals in universities and colleges.
For most teaching or training roles you need a relevant degree (first class or 2:1), have, or be working towards, a PhD and to have had your research published.
To teach a subject related to a specific construction career, you need a relevant degree or professional qualification and several years of work experience in the field.
You can sometimes gain experience by taking on teaching duties while you are a research student. Some universities advertise opportunities under job titles such as Graduate Teaching Assistant.
A lecturer is able to complete a wide range of in-house training, and even external courses if they’re relevant to your work. Postgraduate qualifications, such as Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching (Higher Education), are also available. Sometimes these are compulsory for new staff on permanent contracts and can be done alongside your work as a lecturer.
Salaries depend on location, employer, experience and level of responsibility.
* Salaries have been collected from multiple industry sources and have been updated as of 2019
