We seek two part-time Learning Coordinators to deliver non-formal and accredited learning programmes in the Highland and Moray regions to individuals and small groups of disabled people, carers and those experiencing barriers to work and education.

The successful applicants will be committed to:

1) Engaging and supporting disabled people and carers to overcome barriers and embark on personalised learning journeys, making positive, sustained transitions into their chosen progression routes and positive destinations.

2) Being an active part of the Lead Scotland team as we develop new, exciting learning opportunities in the north of Scotland for the next three years.

You will be responsible for

1) Delivering and assessing one to one and small group, non-formal and accredited learning programmes to agreed targets as defined by our funder. You will deliver our accredited Community Action Leadership Award, the Adult Achievement Award and other courses as defined by learners.

2) Working alongside and supporting volunteers in delivering learning.

Experience of managing volunteers would be an advantage, as would a track record of experience in community learning and adult guidance and support.

This post will suit those who are passionate about the transformative power of adult learning, who have excellent communication skills and a flexible and creative approach to problem-solving.

You must be enthusiastic with good organisational skills and have previous experience of supporting disabled people experiencing a range of barriers, of working one-to-one with learners, and of designing and delivering learning programmes. A full driving licence and access to a car is essential to travel to homes and communities across this rural area. You will hold an Assessors Award or be willing to work towards this.
