Kirklees College is a large and successful FE college which was rated ‘Good’ in all areas following our recent Ofsted inspection in March 2023. Learners achieve high levels of success due to the quality and commitment of our teaching staff, with students benefitting greatly from their vocational and professional expertise. We are looking to recruit a Trainer Assessor with the ability to enthuse, motivate and inspire every learner on our Early Years Education courses.

Ideally, they will come with a good working knowledge of the NCFE CACHE T-Level core components. We would welcome applications from candidates with recent experience of supporting Early Years apprentices. The focus for the successful candidate will be on supporting T-Level students and Apprentices whilst they are on work placements to ensure that they are developing the required skills, qualities and experiences for their role and qualification. This includes regular assessment, feedback, and support for all students. The qualifications necessary for this role are a minimum of Level 2 qualification in literacy and numeracy (e.g. GCSE English and Maths at grade A*- C) and a relevant industry qualification at Level 3+. Experience of working in a FE College would be beneficial, as would a L4 or higher teaching qualification. We could however support the right candidate to achieve their teaching qualification through our extensive in-house teacher training programmes.

Due to the nature of our work, it’s essential you’re committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. It’s important that you’re able to communicate effectively, engage with young people and demonstrate our College values of Kindness, Unity and Excellence in your role. We believe learning is not just for our students: it’s an important part of working here too. Staff development opportunities include a mentoring scheme, financial contributions for external qualifications and skills development for current and aspiring managers. You’ll also have access to a range of staff benefits including an employee assistance programme, retail and leisure discounts and reduced Metro travel.
