Teaching Btec construction after 20 years of A Level DT

    Apologies if ive been spotted in secondary and primary forums already but i originally trained (after degree) for post 16 education (PGCE in FE) although subsequent work in secondary schools limited that to A level teaching in DT In Product Design. Im at a junction in my career eyeing up new opportunities and have seen a job that sounds ideal. However it does require teaching hard materials (i presumed this meant resistant materials) but they want some teaching of Btec Construction. Presuming this will be in metal/joinery rather than bricklaying, is it feasible to make this move i.e would i likely find it difficult? My degree was in furniture design so i can work with multi materials. Closing date is next week if anyone had any advice on this. Thanks in advance.
