Crisis is the national charity for homeless people. We know that homelessness is not inevitable. We know that together we can end it.
Crisis Skylight South Yorkshire are a dynamic innovative team that go the extra mile to support people out of their homelessness for good. Our experienced and diverse team work closely to provide a wraparound service that is personally tailored to individual needs. Our innovative education, employment, housing and well-being services address individual needs and help homeless people transform their lives.
About the role
Crisis is recruiting for a Construction Tutor to develop and deliver an engaging and varied programme for members across South Yorkshire. As the Construction Tutor, you will provide our members coming out of homelessness with appropriate teaching and training on accredited and non-accredited learning programmes with a focus on delivering DIY/HomeMaintenance qualifications.
This is an exciting role which will give the post holder the opportunity to deliver practical skills in an outreach setting providing training to support people in and around the home. This will in turn support homeless and vulnerably housed people develop their confidence, self-esteem and inter-personal skills.
For this role, we’re looking for someone with really practical skills and experience, and someone who is keen to share their knowledge with others. We’re open to this role being adapted to meet the post holder’s experience and skillsets; be that in painting/decorating, woodwork, upcycling, bricklaying, plumbing, electrics, etc. then we’re keen to hear from you. The role will require teaching in small groups in community settings and some 1:1 work, including working with Members in their own homes.
Ideally you will have a formal teaching qualification e.g. (PTTLS or above) or a formal L3 qualification or above in a relevant vocational area. However, if you don’t currently hold a qualification, but you have some experience of teaching/training people and you’re willing to work towards this, we’ll be happy to support you with this.
Experience of working with vulnerable clients, or an understanding of the issues affecting homeless people is desirable but not essential. The ideal candidate will be committed to empowering homeless people through the development of life and social skills and participation in engagement and learning activities.
We want Crisis to be an inclusive employer which then reflects our members and the communities we work in. We want to offer opportunities to everyone regardless of their gender, ethnicity, disability, religion, sexual orientation or age. We particularly welcome applications from people with lived experience of homelessness.
