ACL Horticulture Tutor

Oaklands College, Adult and Community Learning team which is based in St Albans, Hertfordshire, is looking for an experienced and qualified Horticulture tutor to deliver short Horticulture/Gardening courses as part of our Step2Skills funded provision.
These short courses are delivered over five to six weeks (2 hours per lesson) during the academic year to community partners and groups, which will include students with mild learning difficulties and disabilities. Courses are developed to meet the group needs and could range from how to grow your own vegetable in a limited space, creating your own container garden, garden maintenance and grow your own herbs as examples. Ideally you will have previous experience in delivering bespoke provision. Courses are delivered at our Campuses and community venues in the areas stated, so your own transport is essential.
The successful applicant should have a high level of experience in the area of Horticulture/Gardening and would ideally have professional qualifications and a relevant teaching qualification e.g., Level 3 Award in Education and Training or equivalent. As this is funded provision there is necessary paperwork which will need to be completed.
Closing Date Sunday 12th December - Early applications are advised as the advert may close before the official closing date.

We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and communities, and we particularly welcome applicants who are currently under represented in our workforce. This includes but is not limited to Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates and disabled candidates.
