Role

The post is based at Levenmouth Community Enterprise Centre in Methil Fife and is responsible for the delivery of activities related to the operation of Brag’s delivery on behalf of the Fife Employability and Training Consortium (Fife-ETC).

The core of this work is to provide employability training to individuals who are long term unemployed and/or have multiple barriers. This includes how to make changes to improve their standard of living whilst also preparing to move into and sustain education and/or work. Whilst there is course material available to use the post holder must also be available to make changes to this as needs arise to ensure that the right service is delivered at all times. This can encompass both group work and 1-2-1 provision. This training will be rolled out across Fife, for participants involved with Fife-ETC. Close working with colleagues in Fife-ETC will be required to gain referrals however close links with local providers must be forged to ensure there is a flow of participants as this role has targets.

Brag works to provide training, support and guidance to all participants on the programme in order for them to increase their confidence, skills and experience. All such training services will be implemented to Quality Standards, with fair and equal opportunity for all concerned carried out in a healthy and safe environment and in a positive manner suitable to all learners needs.

We are looking for people who thrive in delivering a person centred approach and can be adaptable to reflect the ever-changing needs of our client base. You will be experienced in coaching and supporting with an ability to ensure you can keep focused and deliver quality training and support whilst retaining a flexible approach.

It is the nature of the work of the post that tasks and responsibilities are, in many circumstances, unpredictable and varied. All staff are therefore expected to work in a flexible way when the occasion arises so that tasks, which are not specifically covered in their job description, can be undertaken. This post works 100% as part of the Fife Employability and Training Consortium and is funded by European Social Investment Funds 2019-22 through the Opportunities Fife partnership
