As an Employability Tutor you will helping young people - 16 - 19 years, gain their first step on their career ladder by preparing them for employment, which may be a Traineeship or an Apprenticeship. 

Following the Covid pandemic, many young people face unemployment and a very uncertain future.  Many, do not have the confidence, nor many practical work skills to enable them to secure employment, particularly if they have just left education and have no real work experience.  If you are an Employability or Traineeship tutor, this is where you come in.  

You will be responsible for working with small groups of learners, who you will support closely to give them the skills and confidence they need to be better prepared for securing employment.  You'll be focusing on building their personal and social development skills, which will not only help them gain a job, but have a wider impact on their personal lives too.  

Good Employability Tutors are special people because they have the ability to inspire, motivate whilst giving young people key life skills.  The training they provide is engaging and good Employability Tutors have an innate ability to inspire even the most disengaged young person.

You will be working for an Ofsted Grade Good training provider, who are well established and hold an impressive track record within traineeships and apprenticeships.  Their small, dedicated Employability & Traineeship Team have proved highly successful at giving young people the skills they need to secure employment.
