Contract: This is a flexible role with sessional, part time and potentially full-time opportunities available dependent upon availability and experience.

Nottingham College is one of the largest further education colleges in the country creating opportunities for employment and progression to higher education for the people, raising their prosperity and that of the local economy.

Within Employer Services, our Workskills E-learning Team, we aim to develop the potential in people and “transform lives through learning” through the flexibility of a range of distance learning courses.

We have an exciting opportunity to recruit multiple E-learning Tutors to join our growing Workskills Team, with a passion and focus on developing the potential in people.

Learners self-refer and apply for online courses advertised on the College website to enrol on a course, at which point they are contacted, to ensure the course is the right one they wish to study. We get a mix of adult learners, majority working and some unemployed individuals wishing to enhance their knowledge and skill.

You will be responsible for providing support, feedback, guidance to learners on distance-learning courses, marking assessments; providing robust feedback and ensuring regular contact is maintained until learners have successfully completed their chosen course. The role will involve the use of various platforms to ensure monitoring of all learner records, progress and reporting are kept up to date.

Applicants will have a genuine desire to help and support learners through their course and will be expected to have a Level 3 qualification as a minimum with experience within subject specific areas (or equivalent). You must have excellent communication and IT skills and the ability to inspire learners through effective personalised teaching.

You will be working in a great team supported by the Workskills Manager and Skills Commissioning Manager.

We have a range of Level 1 and Level 2 certificate courses that individuals can complete, and you be able to support specific learners enrolled on the following:

  • Self-Harm, Suicide Awareness & Prevention
