Casual Adult Skills Tutor
Salary: £27,218 p.a. pro rata
We are looking for inspirational tutors to deliver courses in our adult community learning provision across Swindon. We are specifically looking for tutors in the following areas (but are happy to be approached about others): English, Maths, Employability, Health and Wellbeing, Personal Development, and Digital Skills.
SBC Adult Community Learning works with partners to meet the needs of Swindon residents who are aged 19 years or older. Our curriculum targets those who are disadvantaged and least likely to participate in learning or to be able to self-help. Our learners may be on low incomes, those with low skills, at risk of social isolation and/or those furthest away from the labour market, for whatever reason. We aspire for all our learners to achieve outstanding outcomes no matter what their starting point, supporting all adults to progress towards achieving higher level skills. What our learners go on to achieve after the course ends is important to us and as their tutor you will be discussing their next steps with them. By working with partners, colleges, training providers and other stakeholders we ensure that learners have access to progression routes to level 2 and above courses.
Courses are delivered in community based settings such as Swindon’s primary schools and community centres. Typically they are either pre-entry, entry or Level 1. Our courses are both accredited and non-accredited. For non-accredited courses we apply the RARPA principles. Most of our courses are short, for example, they vary between 15-30 hours. Some qualification courses may be longer.
From August 2018 we have been increasing our direct delivery and reducing the amount of subcontracted delivery. We are looking for innovative, engaging and inspirational tutors who will work with us as part of our small team to deliver this change whilst maintaining high standards for our learners. Various hours available.
Candidates must be fluent in the English language (as a requirement of Part 7 of the Immigration Act – for the effective performance of a customer-facing role). This role is subject to a disclosure check under the barring service.
