Are you passionate about supporting disadvantaged young people to prepare for work?

Is the time right for you to take on a new role with a passionate and ethical local employer with ambitious plans for growth?

If the answer is yes, then this is the role for you!

We have an exciting opportunity for a Functional Skills Tutor to join the CT Skills family based at our Derby and/or Nottingham training centres. This is a full time role, with travel between sites as required within the East Midlands, a driving licence and access to a car is therefore essential.

We are committed to safeguarding; an enhanced DBS clearance is also required for this role.

The Role

You will be working predominantly with young learners aged 16-24 on our Traineeship Programme. You will be teaching and assessing their Functional Skills maths and English up to Level 2 through a mixture of group learning, one-to-one sessions and via e-learning platforms. You will be effectively managing and progressing learners with varying levels of ability, to make them work ready, progress onto apprenticeships and ultimately employment.

The Individual

You should have experience of working with young people with a passion for motivating and inspiring learners.

You will be an effective communicator, able to successfully engage learners and overcome their barriers to learning. You will be able to provide fun and engaging learning sessions, supporting learners into employment. You will have the ability to coach, develop and mentor people with the ability to manage difficult situations calmly.

You will have a recognised teaching qualification, ideally at Level 4, but full training will be provided for you to achieve that level. Functional Skills maths and/or English at Level 3 is also essential.
