Lecturer Durham Learn, Grade 9 - Temporary until 31st March 2019

Durham Learn is a Flexible Learning funded programme, which seeks to help adult’s aged 19+ gain qualifications that will facilitate their progression at work. The project’s blended learning approach will enable learners to undertake learning at times when it is convenient to them, by providing mobile/ tablet friendly modular content published on a new Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). This will address barriers faced by the learners that have previously excluded them from gaining these qualifications. We are looking to appoint the following:

English & Maths Lecturer:

We are seeking to appoint a full-time lecturer with specialism in both English and mathematics who can develop online resources and deliver a four month pilot offering Functional Skills qualifications in both English and maths to adults at levels 1 and 2.

The post holder will participate in the development of online programmes and carry out teaching and learning activities across the county. Durham Learn learners will gain first exposure to new material outside of class, usually via reading or lecture videos, monthly class contact time will be used to do the harder work of assimilating that knowledge through strategies such as problem-solving, discussion or debates.

The post holder will be required to supervise any learning support assistants allocated to their classes; prepare the learning environment including the handling and setup of specialist equipment, resources and materials as determined by the course; to guide and direct learners on their progress throughout their planned learning journey as well as possible progression options; to monitor and advise on learner’s welfare including safeguarding, health & safety; and to work with the centre staff including management and subject sector leads.

The post may involve travel between centres and to employers premises including regular day time and evening working and the possibility of some weekend working. The working conditions could include classrooms, workshops / employers premises or in community venues. This may involve long periods of standing, manual handling, lifting, carrying and erecting of resources as well as some lone working before and after classes.

Required qualifications:
• A minimum Level 5 teaching qualification - DTLLS, CertEd or equivalent
• A professional, vocational or graduate qualification in the field to be taught. Vocational and professional qualifications need to be at least at NVQ Level 3 or equivalent and at least one level above the level to be taught.
• Vocational qualifications or CPD must demonstrated relevant and up-to date knowledge of the subject area
• GCSE Grade A to C in English and Maths or appropriate equivalent
