  • Possess a deep understanding of industry-relative equipment required to fulfil the curriculum objectives, including all Gateway and EPA requirements.
  • Conduct daily, weekly, and monthly health and safety practices and, where there is immediate risk, conduct repairs or other interventions.
  • Provide associated skills to deliver organisational objectives while promoting safety and efficiency as part of your KPIs.
  • Use resources such as news/information and colleague engagement to support continual improvement and your own CPD.
  • Value diversity and promote equality internally and externally.
  • Adhere to GTG policies and procedures.
