Lecturers teach adults in Further and Higher Education. Some also do research in universities and colleges.
Salaries depend on location, employer, experience and level of responsibility.
To be a lecturer you must have experience of teaching or be able to show that you have the potential to teach. To lecture in vocational subjects related to construction you usually need a relevant degree or professional qualification – plus several years of relevant work experience behind you.
You may be able to gain experience by taking on teaching duties (possibly paid by the hour) while you are a research student. Some universities advertise opportunities under job titles such as graduate teaching assistant.
With experience you could be promoted to senior (or principal) lecturer with academic management responsibilities.
