Adult Learning Tutors - Various Locations

Advertisement Details
Community Planning and Development is looking to recruit enthusiastic Adult Learning Tutors to deliver classes and activities as part of our community based Adult Learning Programme. As we move back to face to face learning, we are interested in applications from people who can deliver adult learning in community venues or online using Zoom.

We are keen to recruit tutors to deliver yoga, baking, cookery, British Sign Language, Makaton, creative writing, Shetland dialect, Shetland history, astronomy, music, dance, photo editing, and English for speakers of other languages. Applications also welcome from people interested in delivering classes in other subjects too.

Our key focus is providing opportunities for people to get together, develop their skills and interests, and feel part of a community in a learning or informal 'virtual' setting. Submission of a class proposal forms part of the application process if invited to interview.

Adult Learning Tutors will be responsible, through the Adult Learning Development Officer, for developing and delivering adult learning classes in their specific subject. Classes are delivered throughout Shetland in a range of venues, mostly in the evening and at weekends. Post holders will work as part of a team of Adult Learning Tutors and will have access to support from the Adult Learning Development Officer.
