Job Description

An opportunity has arisen for a support tutor, within our learner delivery Team reporting to the performance manager who will be responsible for supporting learners.

You will support the delivery of a full range of vocational training and support services associated with our contracted Programmes. This would include supporting teaching and learning, and learner support from Entry to Level 3, leading to further training, vocational pathways and employment opportunities. You would need to monitor and support the learners on our contracted programmes to ensure planned programmes are completed in a timely manner.

Support Tutor Responsibilities:

• Give specific learning and personal development support to learners. The support could relate to behavioural, emotional or social needs which impact on learning.
• Support the Study Programme Tutors/Assessors to deliver accredited learning to young people aged 16 – 19 possibly across various delivery centres
• Prepare learning resources for learners
• Provide administrative support to service the contract
• Support learners in the classroom.
• Support learners to move into further training and/or employment.

Support Tutor Requirements:

You must have experience of working with young people in a similar role. You should have previous experience of supporting young people in a learning environment, in particular with functional skills maths and English.

Ideally you would have experience of working with young people with additional needs who have previously had a statement of needs (now being changed to an Education Health and Care plan). This could be related to behaviour management or working with learners with specific needs, but this is not essential.

This job requires you to cover sickness, holidays and other requests for support across various delivery centres throughout Yorkshire. You will need to be flexible and be able to drive with access to a car to enable you to respond to support requests at very short notice.

You must have a good standard of literacy and numeracy, and ideally be qualified to GCSE - grade 4 or equivalent in English & Maths. A teaching qualification such as PTTLS or CTTLS is desirable but not essential.

All positions are subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exemptions Order) 1975 and as such it will be necessary for a submission for an Enhanced Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service to check for any previous criminal convictions, cautions, warnings and reprimands.

Our organisation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and post holders to share this commitment.
