Community Teacher – Part Time FTC

Activate Learning is currently looking for an enthusiastic and inspiring teacher to deliver a range of short courses designed to engage the local community in learning, funded though PCDL (Personal and Community Development Learning).

You will reach out to the local community to analyse the needs and gaps that we could then support. This could be through targeting groups that may be disengaged with learning or those that require support to build their confidence in learning something new.

Whether you have industry experience or are a qualified teacher, why not consider showcasing your skills by becoming a role model to people who share a similar passion or have a desire to develop and enhance their skills within a subject area they may not have previously considered.

This is a part time role working 18.5 hours per week and on a fixed term contract until July 2021 and can be based at any of our colleges across Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Surrey, with travel to other campuses and community settings required.

What do you need to be successful in this role?

You will have the ability to demonstrate passion, empathy, confidence and can engage and interact with people of all age groups, along with the ability to adapt quickly to the needs of the community. The funding is variable depending on learner numbers, but is focussed on engagement in learning as opposed to qualifications, and we would interested to discuss with you your community learning ideas and expertise.

Ideally, you will hold a teacher’s qualification or have experience of teaching adults within an education setting. Your communication and interpersonal skills will be outstanding and support your ability to deliver interesting and purposeful lessons to a diverse range of learners.

What are the benefits of this role?

There really is no limit in terms of your personal growth, development and career by joining one of the largest Education Providers in the UK. You will have a comprehensive development program as part of induction together with peer to peer learning, a formal development plan and support at every step of the way to set you up for success.

We offer a buddy system, a digital induction module and a close-knit community of experts and leaders across the Group to support the sharing of best practice and encourage individual growth. We have extensive technology in place to develop digital capability and flexible working arrangements will be considered for the right candidate.
