 Inspire our future farmers by joining the Myerscough Agriculture Teaching Team

Exciting opportunities have arisen to join Myerscough College as a Lecturer in Agriculture - 1 full time equivalent post based at Ullswater Community College, Penrith and 2 full time equivalent posts at the Preston Campus. The posts may be flexible part time roles for the right candidates.

As a Lecturer in Agriculture, you will deliver a mix of practical (on-farm) and classroom agriculture subjects to Further Education students (typically introductory to A-level equivalent standard). Subjects include livestock husbandry, tractors and machinery, estate skills, dairy, beef and sheep, crops, grassland, agri-business, environment and science (soil, plant & animal)

The College has a 300 hectare farm with a 200 cow dairy unit, 1500 sheep and 60 suckler beef cattle with associated grassland and forage crops. The farm has recently benefitted from LEP funding with a Food Farming Innovation and Technology centre including out-of-parlour-feeders, computerised real-time milk analysis, computerised calf feeding/rearing, computerised feed intake bins, Auto ID and computerised weighing of beef and dairy. There are a range of modern tractors and machines that are used in practical machinery operation.
