Tutors - Casual
We are looking for additional Assessors/Tutors with a background in either Business and Administration, Customer Service or Leadership and Management to join our bank staff team. Even if you would not consider being part of our team on a regular basis, or would like to ‘top-up’ your income when it suits your lifestyle, we would love to hear from you to discuss the options we have during term time and school holidays. We are flexible and will work with you to fit work around any current commitments you may have.
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for experienced Tutor/Assessors to help us deliver Adult Education Services across Coventry and Warwickshire. We are particularly interested in hearing from you if you have recent experience in the delivery and assessment of apprenticeships. You will observe learners in their workplace, provide support and guidance by collecting evidence, assessing their abilities and enabling them to gain their desired qualifications.
Your job would be to help make sure that apprentices meet all the occupational standards needed to achieve their qualification. Some of the opportunities available combine some teaching or training duties with the assessment work.
As a tutor/assessor your day-to-day tasks will include:
• planning and delivering teaching sessions on vocational training programmes and workshops
• observing, training and assessing candidates in their workplace
• questioning candidates about how they would deal with non-standard situations
• examining candidates' electronic portfolios of evidence, confirming competence, as appropriate
• providing feedback and offering advice if the standards are not met, face to face and via electronic portfolio
• signing off the award when all the requirements have been met
• keeping records of candidates' progress
• working closely with training staff and candidates' managers
• attending meetings with other assessors and the apprenticeship management team
Once you are experienced in working with us, if you hold a recognised IQA qualification, you could also work during our peak times as an IQA, carrying out quality assurance checks.
We are Coventry Adult Education Service and we are rated as a “Good” provider by Ofsted, December 2013. “Learners achieve extremely well across the Service”.
We provide apprenticeships to Coventry City Council, Schools and Academies and other key employers in Coventry and Warwickshire.
We are looking for individuals who are available and can be flexible to work office hours (Monday to Friday) during term time and during school holidays. We welcome applications from individuals who only wish to commit to working half a day a week through to those who can commit to working 5 days a week.
You would usually be based at an office and would travel on a regular basis to visit your candidates' places of work.
