Job Description


Are you an experienced professional, keen to pass on your knowledge to others? Do you want to give something back by instructing others in your area of expertise?

We are looking for Tradespeople from all industries, including but not limited to

  • Plumbing
  • Carpentry & joinery
  • Painting & Decorating
  • Brickwork
  • Plastering
  • General construction
  • Motor trades

We are looking for people who want to impart their experience and teach their passion. We have a variety of positions available, from permanent, fixed term and casual contracts. 

You do not need to have teaching experience, just a passion and desire to share your knowledge to help others to learn those skills.

We are not necessarily looking for full time applicants, we can create courses and timetables to suit your other work commitments and are happy to work around you and your schedule to deliver instructional lessons.

Bring your skills to us and we can design something around you!

What are the benefits of this role?

This could take your career and experience in a new direction. You may not have considered using your skills in this way before.  It may also present opportunities longer term, to provide you with a varied and fulfilling career path.  

By working in an educational setting, you will have the opportunity to share your skills, develop mentoring and training capabilities and potentially widen your own employment prospects.

What are the benefits of working for Activate Learning Group? 

At Activate Learning we are pioneering education with an unwavering focus on providing talent for business and transforming lives through our award-winning Learning Philosophy. Our learner experience is the result of our attention to detail in recruiting, developing and retaining the right staff who match and promote the values and behaviours of our brand.  

There really is no limit in terms of your personal growth and development by joining one of the largest Education Providers in the UK. We offer a digital induction module and a close-knit community of experts and leaders across the Group to support the sharing of best practice and encourage individual growth. We also have extensive technology in place to develop digital capability. 

Applications are reviewed and shortlisted on a rolling basis and we reserve the right to interview, appoint and close adverts early due to the volume of applications we receive. 

We therefore encourage you to apply at the earliest opportunity to avoid disappointment as once we have closed a vacancy you will be unable to submit your application form. 

Activate Learning is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all its staff to share this commitment. Successful applicants will be required to undergo a DBS check at the appropriate level.  

Applicants must be eligible to work in the UK as we do not sponsor work permits and work permits from other organisations are unacceptable as proof of right to work in the UK. 

Applications are encouraged from all candidates meeting or exceeding the minimum criteria for the role regardless of age, disability, gender, orientation, race, religion or ethnicity. 

Activate Learning are committed to employing people with disabilities and will ensure our recruitment process is inclusive and accessible. If you require any reasonable adjustments either at application or interview stage please contact the talent team directly. 

If an agency submits an unsolicited CV to any partner or employee of our company, you should be aware that they have no authority to enter into an arrangement with you. Should we require recruitment agency involvement, we will contact the agencies on our preferred suppliers list, and we would ask that you respect the relationships we have already built with these suppliers.
