Functional Skills Tutor

Kingston Upon Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire
COVID-19 notice: We're continuing to recruit education staff throughout these unprecedented times, as we can still get you registered and cleared ready for when schools re-open. Instead of face-to-face meetings, all interviews will be via phone and we can guide you through submitting your documents online.

Tradewind are currently working with an excellent education provider in Hull, who are in need of a Functional Skills tutor, to work on a part time basis (2.5 days per week), working with entry level students. You will be solely responsible for teaching the English elements of the functional skills post, and will be job sharing with an experienced practitioner who will be teaching the Maths element of this course to the students. This was initially to start ASAP, but has now been pushed back until the schools and educational settings re-open again. While we are not entirely sure on this, the plan is for the successful candidate to start at the beginning of the academic year in September. Your working days will be a Wednesday Afternoon, Thursday and Friday.

Experience working with students working on an entry level is essential for this post. This is an open position that has been created due to additional funding, so if the successful candidate enjoys the placement and excels, there may be the potential for a permanent position at the end of the placement. Initially though, you are looking at work until at least Christmas, and at that point there will be opportunity for both yourself, and the provider, to assess how things are going and make a decision from there. You will be working on a 121 basis (or often a small group basis) with students with severe additional needs, so SEN experience is desirable for this position, as is having a formal teaching qualification (PGCE or equivalent). Payment for this position will be £13.00 per hour, and you will be working 7 hours per day on a full day, and 4 hours per day on a half day. For this reason, your total weekly earnings would equate to £235.00 for 18 hours worked. You will be working a Wednesday Afternoon, and full days on a Thursday and Friday. It may be possible to drop the Wednesday afternoon if this is not doable for the successful candidate, but the Thursday and Friday is non-negotiable. Your working hours will be 8:00AM to 4:00PM on a full day, and 1:00PM to 4:00PM on a half day (Wednesday afternoon). This is a unique opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of students who need some additional support, and you will have the added advantage at working at a wonderful provider who truly value the education of their students. You will be liaising with other practitioners to ensure that the learners in your care achieve the best possible outcomes in their literacy functional skills. This position is not term time, so working in holidays and summer are expected. You will, however, have 18 days annual leave which equates to 7 weeks off.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you are interested in our process, the way in which we operate, the schools we work with, or more information about how supply teaching works. We are still working 7AM to 5:30PM each day, so would be happy for you to get in touch and ask about the process, and get you registered. Obviously with the current times, this registration process will be done electronically, and from there we will process your registration, with just some finishing touches needed when measures are relaxed, and social contact is once again permitted and advised.

* Planning and Delivering Functional Skills literacy
* Liaising with Teaching Assistants and Safeguarding leads
