Functional Skills Tutor

Kingston Upon Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire
Tradewind are currently recruiting for a Functional Skills tutor, to work on a long term basis in the East Riding!

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. The start day is reasonably difficult . 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 guaranteed 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 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.

The students you are teaching will be adult learners, so experience working with adult learners is desirable, but by no means essential for this position.

After visiting this setting, I was extremely impressed with the close-knit family feel of the setting, and the atmosphere was undeniably positive. Learners were happy at the setting, and clearly felt safe and secure. The head of centre is unquestionably an inspirational leader, who believes in the wellbeing of his employees and learners above all else. You will have sole responsibility for the Functional Skills English provision, and you will be given autonomy to deliver the subject as you see fit.

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

Essential requirements:
A teaching qualification (PGCE or Equivalent)
All work with Tradewind requires a DBS on the update service, and collection of at least two verified references.
An up to date CV with a 10 year career history
Legal Right to Work in the UK
