About the role

Are you looking for an exciting opportunity to make a difference to families' lives where every course aims to improve parent's own skills and links to the child's development? 

We are seeking a multi skilled and qualified tutor to teach courses to parents as part of our Family Learning suite of programmes. As a lead tutor you will have the opportunity to make direct impact on improving the lives of parents and their children in Surrey.

Family Learning is an integral part of Surrey Adult Learning which offers a broad range of learning opportunities to meet both local needs and government priorities. Family Learning aims to improve outcomes for parents and children through an exciting and relevant curriculum of inter-generational and adult only courses. Wherever possible we encourage parents to pursue further learning and offer opportunities for progression to accreditation.

The Family Learning team is based at Camberley Adult Learning Centre; however, flexible working is available, by agreement. Courses are always delivered from schools, family centres or community centres across Surrey therefore your place of work will vary from day to day.

You will join a dedicated team of three lead tutors (Language and Maths) and be responsible for designing and delivering a structured teaching programme to directly meet learners' needs for each course you teach. Our popular courses include 'Managing Children's Anxiety', Parental Wellbeing and 'Understanding Children's Behaviour'.

As a lead tutor you will develop specialist resources for these courses and support and mentor improvements for other 'bank' tutors in your curriculum area. You will assess learners' starting points, set appropriate learning objectives and review and assess progress.

If you would like to join us please submit your application and personal statement clearly evidencing:

  • Experience in teaching parenting, wellbeing or early years courses for an organisation preferably subject to the Ofsted quality framework. 
  • A level 3 or higher subject specific qualification which is linked to either parenting, early years or wellbeing and a relevant teaching qualification.
