What skills and experience we're looking for

The IASTI Teacher will provide effective teaching and delivery within the College to include the effective deployment of subjects and assignments, where appropriate.

The hours of work are 8am – 5pm.

Further details about the role

IASTI are a brand-new initiative designed to educate and train the next generation of aviation professionals.
