Position: Apprenticeship Online Tutor
Location: Remote (home based)
As the FE market continues to recover from the effects of Covid, we are seeing many providers adapt, change direction, recover and all other adjectives you might use to show positivity. This particular provider are really motoring across Apprenticeships (Thank you incentives) and other provisions that they have introduced this year.
As such to add to a number of new hires in this business already, we are looking for an Apprenticeship coach/trainer to join and be an Online Tutor delivering the knowledge modules of the level 3 and 5 Apprenticeship standards. Specifically, you will only be delivering the knowledge modules in an online classroom environement to groups of up to 15 learners. The 1-2-1 coaching and assessment will be handled separately within the business, but of course you will still liaise and work with the coaches to provide support to learners. All material for delivery is ready to go, but you have the autonomy to switch it up, change it to suit a group, or constantly improve it inline with new ways of working or content. To re-iterate, this is all group delivery, and you will have to be comfortable delivering up to 2x 2 hour sessions a day.
I won't spend too much time on requirements, but simply you'll already been in an Apprenticeship Coaching/Trainer role, with knowledge on up to date standards for the above. You'll be qualified as such as well with Training/teaching & Assessing qualifications, and you will be comfortable and able to work & deliver remotely using Zoom/Teams.
So why this provider?
These guys are probably one of the more long standing training providers in the market, operate on a national scale, grade 2, and have been in a good place for many years. All very good reasons to cast an eye on them as a potential employer, however this will be the real pull for the right people - they are going through a period of change across the company.
2020 has been the boost to them that it has been to many, and they are implementing a number of changes across the business including new provisions and qualifications to deliver. The biggest change you will experience is the transition from the more traditional face to face learning, to remote and distance learning in the apprenticeship provision (hence why this role is remote). Zoom is the video platform of choice, that ties nicely into their online learning system. You will need to be competent in this, as you will be delivering group workshops and classroom sessions.
As a business, they have a very inclusive culture across the whole company. Although remote, you certainly won't be in exile, they have already created a great support network - more than when it was more office based, to ensure every member of the business has support and great communication.
2021 will see even more change throughout the business, but all for positive reasons to push the business further in what is going to be a very buoyant market - fancy being a part of it?
