Ex-prop Woodman, who won the World Cup with England in 2003, played for Gloucester between 1995 and 2004.
He moved to Sale Sharks before of the 2004-5 season, but suffered a back injury which ended his career in 2005.
He became a coach and worked at Sydney University where his work was such a success he was appointed National Scrum Coach by the Australian Rugby Union.
He moved back to England and was forwards coach at Wasps for four years before taking up a role at Cheltenham College.
But he will now return to Kingsholm, taking over from Tony Windo.
Gloucester's Director of Rugby Nigel Davies said: "Firstly, I'd like to thank Tony Windo. Tony has worked incredibly hard for us over the past two seasons, combining his time working on our scrum with his role at Bromsgrove School.
"However, it's become increasingly apparent that we needed someone who could commit more time to the role with us. With his teaching position in mind, Tony isn't able to do so and we completely respect and understand that.
"But we are extremely pleased to be able to bring in someone of Trevor Woodman's calibre. He played the game at the very highest level and then translated that skill set into a very successful coaching career.
"He's worked at international level with Australia and also at club level for several seasons with London Wasps. His input is going to be invaluable going forward."
