Community Learning Tutor (casual)

We’re into learning for life; you could give people the tools they need to build their future.

We want to offer first-class learning opportunities to our communities. Whether that’s to improve job prospects, better support family or improve well-being, our communities come to us to help support them develop new skills. That’s why we support our tutors to work with small groups of learners where they can respond to individual need, work flexibly and take advantage of what education technology can offer.

We help people through learning opportunities. Whether that is helping them move in, or closer to, work or volunteering, improve their physical or mental well-being or simply strengthen their connection to our communities, we’re here to help. We provide a friendly and flexible environment at our Open Learning Centre, where we welcome people to collaborate and learn.

We’re specifically looking for tutors in the following areas: English, maths, IT, employability, exercise and fitness, nutrition and well-being 

Put simply, this is an opportunity to pass on your passion for learning and support someone take those next steps.

Because we’re Bracknell Forest.

  • An inclusive and social working environment.
  • Flexible working hours.
