Argyle Community Trust is looking for an enthusiastic and passionate Sports tutor to join our education programme in Plymouth. Reporting to the Post 16 Lead for Plymouth, you will inspire, engage and ensure that every young person that goes through a Post 16 programme with us will have an opportunity to thrive and succeed. The role of Sports Tutor will be to deliver across a number of vocational courses as required, these courses include but are not exclusively the level 2 NCFE Sports course, the level 3 BTEC in Sports Coaching, the YMCA level 2 gym instructors course, the YMCA level 3 personal trainer course and the level 3 esports extended diploma.

Alongside the Plymouth course, the Trust runs similar programmes in Camborne and Newton Abbot. Across the Trust, education programmes have expanded by 30% during the past two years resulting in a provision of over 160 students, 10 staff and eight football teams that play in the U19’s national leagues. We are proud of our results, with 100% of students completing the BTEC course and 96% achieving on or above their target grades.

This role will be based in Plymouth, delivered by Argyle Community Trust and run in partnership with City College Plymouth. Tutors will teach the qualifications through sport, most notably the medium of football, as part of ACT’s Football Development Programme for students aged 16-19 years. In addition to this the tutor may be required to deliver on other vocational provisions as listed above. The successful candidate must have in-depth knowledge of the BTEC Sport specification. We would expect the candidate to have a minimum Level 4 teaching qualification and ideally QTLS. In addition to this the tutor should have a good standard of English and mathematics as well as a willingness to undertake key administrative duties associated with the role.

In addition to the role outlined above, depending on your aspirations, interests and qualification, you may also be required to assist with the football coaching duties of the Plymouth Post 16 provision. As a registered charity, the Community Trust works, in close conjunction with Plymouth Argyle Football Club and with many people across several sectors where sport has proven to be the ideal tool for creating lasting engagement with a diverse range of individuals.
