We are currently looking for Sessional Tutors to teach courses for LLDD Learners (Learners with Learning Difficulties and Disabilities) based at centers in the London Borough of Merton.

The courses will be offered at three locations; Pollards Hill Library, the high Path Community Centre and the Jan Malinowski Centre. The subjects covered are Cooking (including meal preparation), Health, Dance and Performing Arts. Courses are scheduled on 4 days of the week – currently, not Tuesday. Courses will run term time only across the academic year starting in September 2017. Previous teaching experience on LLDD provision would be an advantage.

If you are interested in teaching on the Cooking/Meal Preparation courses, you should hold a current Food Hygiene certificate at level 2 or above.

As a sessional tutor you will be completing the administration associated with these courses. You will join our bank of teaching staff and will be offered courses as and when that match your area of expertise. Hours are variable and cover daytimes, evenings and weekends. Tutors work closely with Programme Leaders in the designing, planning and delivering courses which stretch and challenge our learners as well as preparing a variety of learning materials, providing guidance to learners on progression options, attending termly meetings at RACC and completing course administration.

If you are knowledgeable, dependable and interested in this work and have relevant qualifications and experience, please do apply for this role.

We will be taking on a number of staff with different specialisms and abilities, so please do indicate on your application which subject area you are interested in – this may be more than one area.
