(Lincoln & Lincolnshire)

 

Hours: 37 hours per week

Salary: c. £20K per annum

 

We are looking for talented individuals to join our Academy team based in Lincolnshire delivering and facilitating accredited training to adults in recovery from substance misuse.

In October 2016 the Lincolnshire Academy was commissioned to deliver an independent recovery service to help people receiving treatment create a different future for themselves.  The Academy provides a progression pathway where clients (known as students) are offered, through a personal plan, a range of accredited level 1 and level 2 progression qualifications.  We also provide opportunities for people to get involved in mutual aid activities and signpost and connect people to opportunities and activities taking place in their local communities.

The role will be expected to plan, teach and evaluate courses, delivering quality learning opportunities including staff training.  The role will also involve the facilitation of a range of non-accredited groups including peer led mutual aid and connecting students to a comprehensive range of community ‘assets’ including volunteering opportunities and work experience.

We are looking for people who can be champions of Recovery and be proactive in supporting the growth and profile of Recovery and Recovery Communities in Lincolnshire.

Candidates will have a good general level of education which will ideally include a teacher training qualification (e.g. PTLLS).  Training delivery experience is important as well as experience of developing teaching and learning materials and having the ability to be able to track and monitor individual progress.
