Role:

Scottish Book Trust is a national charity that believes books, reading and writing have the power to change lives. A love of reading inspires creativity, improves employment opportunities, mental health and wellbeing and is one of the most effective ways to help break the poverty cycle. We work towards a Scotland where everyone has an equal opportunity to thrive through literacy.

We are looking for confident, enthusiastic trainers to join our Early Years (Bookbug) team. Candidates should have a strong background in delivering face-to-face training and the ability develop the skills and enthusiasm of others.

Bookbug is Scotland’s universal early years book gifting programme. The post holder will deliver a range of early years training and ongoing support activities for Bookbug practitioners from a broad range of sectors and partner agencies, including libraries, early education, NHS, social care and third sector organisations. The training covers a range of topics to support professionals to engage families with the benefits of sharing stories, songs and rhymes.

Please note that the training Scottish Book Trust delivers is for adults who work with children and families, and the trainer role does not involve direct work with children.
