Centrepoint is the UK's leading youth homelessness charity. We help vulnerable young people by giving them the practical and emotional support they need to find a job and live independently. Together with our partners, we support thousands of homeless young people each year.
A key aspect of this is the work that Centrepoint has been doing to deliver engaging employability and traineeship programs, which are funded by the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA); these courses enable unemployed young people aged 16 – 24 years, to access the training and work experience they need to secure employment. We are currently recruiting for a new trainer to join our delivery team and support the work across London.
We are looking for a highly motivated, innovative and tenacious individual; offering a dynamic, responsive and flexible service that works to ensure the widest range of opportunities for all young people with a focus for those who need it most. We want to support young people by raising aspirations, achieving ambition and better integration/access of services for 16-25 year olds across London.
You will be part of a training team providing a high quality, dynamic, and responsive service across London. The programme is target driven and you will be responsible for delivering accredited employability programmes and supporting young people to access work placements as part of a traineeship. These programmes will be provided to young people in small groups and 1:1 creatively, energetically, and with a willingness to communicate your ideas to the wider team. You will have a teaching qualification – a minimum of PTLLS / Level 3.
The ideal candidate will have experience of delivering on ESFA or similar funded training programmes, including group work sessions, accredited training and planned activities. You will be used to achieving high quality standards and delivering operational targets.
