Govanhill Community Development Trust promotes the social, economic and environmental regeneration of Govanhill. We do this through the provision of affordable workspaces locally and a programme of community development activity. We are a wholly-owned subsidiary of Govanhill Housing Association – a community controlled Registered Social Landlord operating in the Govanhill and Merrylee areas of Glasgow. The Association owns and manages 2,700 homes and provides a Factoring Service to a further 1,500 owners. It has a substantial Development, Major Repairs and Planned Maintenance Programme and delivers wider regeneration activity in partnership with Govanhill Community Development Trust.

We are seeking a ESOL and Family Learning Assistant to support the delivery of our National Lottery Community Fund supported ESOL classes and wider family learning programme. Joining an existing worker, this post will ensure we have a skilled, multi-talented team to support residents of Govanhill to develop their literacy and English skills.

The ESOL and Family Learning Assistant will support the ESOL and Family Learning Workers to support the delivery of the literacy, ESOL and Family Learning programmes. They will help organise classes, support the registration of learners and provide administrative support. The postholder will help facilitate classes and provide one to one support for learners if required. They will also support the administration and certification of students’ learning.

To deliver this role it is essential that you have demonstrable experience of teaching, ideally in a community-based setting. As we are moving towards accredited training centre status, any experience of assessing and verifying attainment will be very useful. Experience of organising and delivering online lessons will also be essential. Knowledge of a language spoken in Govanhill would also be helpful, as would experience of organising events and community engagement activities. This is a challenging but rewarding role where you will make a real difference to people’s lives and join a supportive wider team. If this sounds appealing, we’d love to hear from you.
