Adult Tutor – Family Learning and Multiply

Derbyshire Adult Community Education Service (DACES) is looking to recruit tutors to work in our centres, community venues and schools across Derbyshire and online. We are keen to hear from people who can deliver Family Learning that will help parents and carers build confidence to support their children's learning (in any subject). We are also looking for tutors those who can help us deliver courses to parents and other adults as part of our Multiply programme of courses.

Multiply is a Government funded 3 year programme (up to March 2025) that offers easy access to free numeracy courses and initiatives that can help people brush up their maths skills and help them become more confident with numbers. It can help people aged 19+ who do not already have a GCSE at grade C (or equivalent) in maths to manage their bills, cook on a budget, avoid food waste or help their kids with their maths homework. You don’t have to be a Maths teacher, just to be able to deliver courses to help people to use Maths in everyday situations.

For more information visit the Multiply page on our website or the Multiply – Derbyshire Facebook page

Once appointed to the tutor pool tutors can build a working pattern to suit on a course-by-course basis.  This makes this role ideal for both those who only want to work a few hours a week or occasionally and those who want to build a more substantive role and timetable of classes. 

What we can offer you:

  • Excellent opportunities for mentoring and support to develop your teaching skills
  • A comprehensive CPD programme including sector specific career progression
  • A working pattern to suit you, agreed with your line manager
  • Support to develop your digital skills and online teaching

Applicants should:

  • Hold an adult and/or school age teaching qualification and a recognised subject specialist qualification.
  • Have experience of work with adults and/or young people.
  • Have experience of delivering subject content.
  • Be able to maintain engagement, interaction and motivation of learners.
  • Be committed to promoting diversity, equity and inclusion and British Values.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and we expect all staff to share this commitment and undergo appropriate checks.
