Sustainability and Outdoors Learning Tutor

(hourly paid)

£27,214 to £34,453
Hours per week:- Evening and Weekend working required Start date asap

My client is an award-winning residential college occupying a former Cadbury family home, set in six acres of beautiful grounds in Selly Oak, Birmingham. They were originally founded to provide educational opportunities for some of the most disadvantaged members of society. One hundred years on our mission of 'social justice' is more relevant than ever.

We were the first college to declare a climate emergency. We have a Climate Change and Environmental Sustainability group who have developed an action plan based on the climate change roadmap for FE. We are part of a transnational project with Danish Folk High Schools to strengthen pedagogy within sustainable and global education.

The college is seeking to appoint a specialist Sustainability Tutor to start as soon as possible. This is on an hourly paid basis as we develop this curriculum area which is a strategic objective for the college and for funders.

The role has two purposes. First to deliver new programmes around sustainability. These may be based on existing accredited programmes but we have the option to develop our own. This could be from Entry Level to Level 3 and using a variety of delivery models including residentials and blended learning. In addition, we want to embed sustainability and the use of our grounds into other courses, so we see you also delivering CPD training to our other tutors.

To be considered for this role you must have an appropriate degree or relevant professional qualification or equivalent industry experience in Sustainability. You will be an experienced tutor or trainer who has worked successfully with people from different backgrounds. A teaching qualification and experience of assessment would be an advantage. Ideally you have a science background and can also teach that at a basic level.

Benefits for this role include free parking, free hot drinks, 37 days annual leave with additional closure days, Teachers' Pension Scheme, health cash back plan, NUS discount cards, a unique working environment, 6 acres of beautiful grounds and engaged and committed colleagues.

Closing date for this post is: 26 September 2021
Interviews to take place: Week commencing 11 October 2021

This College is a leader in the area of equality of opportunity and we welcome applications from underrepresented groups including ethnicity, gender, transgender, age, disability, sexual orientation or religion.

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of at-risk adults is fundamental to our provision and we expect all staff to share this commitment.
