ACRES Adult Learning are looking for tutors who have a passion for facilitating learning and assessment, sharing their knowledge and skills and building confidence in all students, along with a willingness to continually improve their own skills. 

Our whole team takes great pride in everything we do to ensure high-quality learning outcomes, taking into account individual needs to ensure every one of our students is equipped and supported to meet and often exceed, their goals and ambitions.

What unites each and every one of us is a passion for making a difference and enabling lifelong learning for everyone. We continually work together to develop our knowledge, skills and approaches to ensure we maintain a learning organisation that is equipped to provide current, high-quality learning opportunities for all our students enabling them to achieve their goals and progress to their chosen next steps, embracing technology and new teaching, learning and assessment strategies along the way. 

We are looking for tutors who are energetic, visionary, professional and caring to join us in working together in a successful, supportive environment, maintaining a thirst for continual development to ensure we provide the very best for our students and our partners; an environment where all staff and students feel valued, supported and empowered to achieve the best possible outcomes. 

Our Functional Skills courses usually run for 31 weeks with the potential to deliver 1-2 courses per academic year for the successful candidate. Any additional sessions/tutorials required may take place online or during college holidays. Mock examinations/assessments will take place at various points throughout the course and in various settings (including online). 
 
There may be an optional opportunity to support individual students attending a Maths GCSE course or an alternative Maths Functional Skills course.
       
All successful applicants will be expected to offer online, face-to-face and blended learning opportunities in response to demand and in line with current guidelines for the provision of learning.
 
Location: 
Current vacancies are for online courses and in the following locations.  Candidates must state on their application form in which locations they can deliver courses.
  • Online - A weekday evening, from 6.45pm - 9.00pm, starting in September 2021
  • Hailsham / Uckfield - Weekday morning, from 9.45 am - 12.00 pm, starting in September 2021 (Level E3/L1)
  • Uckfield - Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday evening, from 6.45 pm - 9.00 pm, starting in September 2021 (Level 1/2)
Course viability is based on student demand. Due to the nature of a rural college we are looking for flexibility in delivering community courses in different locations as well as online. The location of courses can be variable depending on student demand across our area, so it is crucial that applicants state where they are willing to deliver.
