Functional Skills Tutor


Standguide Ltd have an exciting opportunity for a Functional Skills Tutor to join the family based at our Worcester Centre. This is a full time role, with some travel between sites as required within the West Midlands, a driving licence and access to a car is therefore essential.

We are committed to safeguarding our learners; enhanced DBS clearance is therefore required for this role.

The Role

You will be engaging and supporting learners distanced from employment and of varied ability. You will be teaching and assessing their Functional English/maths through a mixture of group learning, one-to-one sessions and via e-learning platforms. You will be effectively managing and progressing learners with varying levels of ability, to make them work ready, progress onto apprenticeships and ultimately employment.

The Individual

You will have a real passion for motivating and inspiring learners, and ideally experience of working with learners distanced from employment.

You will be an effective communicator, able to successfully engage learners and overcome their barriers to learning. You will be able to provide fun and engaging learning sessions, supporting learners into employment. You will have the ability to coach, develop and mentor people with the ability to manage difficult situations calmly.

You should have a recognised teaching qualification, ideally at Level 4, but full training will be provided for you to achieve that level.
