Variety and flexability is key to quality FE teaching.
Working in FE involves flexibility when it comes to the timetable. Lecturers who work on a part time basis often find themselves working a couple of hours in the day and/or evening work. Courses are varied and go beyond the scope of what's on offer in schools. This is also the case with qualifications (though schools have recently been taking pupils through GNVQ). GNVQ, BTEC, CACHE & City & Guilds are some of the qualifications that have been offered in FE.
Assessing work and subjects can be an area that is offered in FE. We are often asked for lecturers who can asses as well as teach their subject.
