Are you committed to helping adults with learning disabilities learn the everyday life skills they need to live more independently? We need a tutor to deliver training sessions for three days a week both at our training centre and out in real-life community settings.

Share is a registered charity and a centre for training and wellbeing. We provide a range of programmes helping adults with learning disabilities, autism and other support needs become more happy, healthy, and independent. Our vision is a world where disabled people are fully included in society, living the life they choose, and we need talented people to help us make that happen.



Main responsibilities



•    You’ll deliver engaging, creative, and interactive sessions that help people grow in confidence and have more choice and control over their lives.

•    You’ll work closely with students to assess individual needs and provide personalised development plans to help them work towards their learning goals.

•    You’ll evaluate your sessions, providing regular feedback and reviews on student progress and wellbeing.



About you



•    You’ve previously worked in a social care environment providing services that help adults with learning disabilities and autism live fulfilling lives.

•    You have experience facilitating interactive sessions that help people better understand how to take control of their own health and wellbeing.

•    You’re empathetic, and you really understand how to motivate people so that they engage and learn. 

•    Most importantly, you share our strong commitment to the inclusion of disabled people in society, and you believe in equality for all.
