We have an exciting opportunity for a Lecturer in Access to Land Based (Foundation) to join our team. If you are passionate about supporting and inspiring unique individuals with ever-changing needs, access the land based industry; then we would love to hear from you!
Within this role, you will need to build rapport with a diverse range of young students, including those with social, emotional, behavioral, mental health or autistic spectrum needs and want to make a difference in our students’ lives, providing them with the skills required to follow multiple career paths and opportunities.
With a wider background of working with the disengaged, learning disabled and young people who are NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) we are happy to consider both qualified and unqualified teachers.
Your focus will be on the progression each learner can make onto the next stage of their learning journey. You will reinforce positive behaviour, support academic development, encourage engagement in the community and, eventually, enable your learners to live an independent life through further education and employment.
The feeling of success when you have inspired a learner who is disengaged, learning disabled or NEET can’t be matched. Your learners will all be unique and will have individual and ever-changing needs; you will need to ask lots of questions, be creative, resilient and have a can-do approach in order to succeed in this post. There will be challenges; this is not an easy area to work in, but we will support you every step of the way. You will join a team that is skilled, passionate and committed to help students achieve through study, releasing their full potential.
