YST Job Vacancies

We are pleased to be advertising for a Functional Skills Tutor to join our team delivering across Gloucestershire.

  • Functional Skills Tutor

Gloucestershire Youth Support Team works with a variety of young people who, for multiple reasons have found it hard to engage in statutory and further education. This includes children in care and care leavers, young people working with the Youth Offending Service, home educated young people and school refusers. Some have very low self-esteem and confidence in their ability to learn; struggle to see a positive future for themselves and believe they cannot achieve in education.

Our Youth Support Team tutoring provision has often been the first education a young person has engaged with for a long time, and can be the springboard to success for many.  We are therefore looking for a dynamic, engaging and creative tutor who can help these young people 1-1 and in small groups to overcome their barriers to learning by focusing on functional skills development.

Full time/Fixed Term contract 
£23,043.00 - £26,988.00 per annum

Please note: although ideally we would like this post to be full time, we will consider part time hours for the right candidate. We are looking for someone who can start as soon as possible given the length of the contract. 

Closing date: 24/11/21
