Skills for Life Lecturer - Permanent Relief

Please Note: The application deadline for this job has now passed.

Role Responsibility

Would you like to make a positive difference to the families in Kent, then we would like to hear from you.

Family and Community Based Learning is part of Kent Adult Education and we deliver a range of courses to families in the community. We are recruiting Skills for Life Lecturers to deliver Family Maths (FEML).   We would be particularly interested in tutors willing to act as maths champions.
FEML is provision designed for mothers, fathers and carers with basic skills needs, and includes programmes for families where English is not the primary language at home. Our programme also includes personal development, basic cookery, family first aid and creative courses with embedded English and Maths. 

The role of a FEML tutor is interesting, enjoyable and above all, hugely rewarding. To join our supportive and dedicated team you’ll need to show that you:

- Hold relevant teaching and subject qualifications.
- Have experience of working with families in the community.
- Be motivated to make learning fun, enjoyable and inspirational. 
- Be willing to produce lesson plans and complete standardised paperwork. 
- Be able to deliver at Entry Level to Level 2 across a range of programmes.

- The ability to travel a reasonable distance in a timely and flexible manner at various times of the day is essential.

- Be flexible to teach various hours during the week.

Strong English and Maths skills are required to underpin all delivery as programmes are mapped to the Adult Core Curriculum and can progress to the Functional Skills qualifications.

You will work in a range of primary schools, children’s centres and community based venues. Courses range from one week to four terms, usually delivered in two-and-a-half hourly sessions per week.

The post is on a Permanent Relief basis with hours available being variable according to business demand and to the applicant’s availability. Opportunities are available countywide and we would like tutors to deliver either in the East or West of Kent.

You will be paid for preparation as well as teaching time on a ratio of 1:1 and the rate includes attendance at three tutor meetings per year.

This post is considered by KCC to be a customer-facing position. The Council therefore has a statutory duty under Part 7 of the Immigration Act (2016) to ensure that post holders have a command of spoken English/Welsh sufficient for the effective performance of the job requirements. The appropriate standards are set out in the Job Description/Person Specification.

This post is subject to an Enhanced Disclosure Application to the Disclosure and Barring Service.

Interviews to be held on Wednesday 29th June 2022.

Closing date: Wednesday 8th June 2022 or earlier if we receive a high volume of suitable candidates.
