Childcare Placement Assessor

Part-time, term-time only

We are seeking a committed, enthusiastic and talented individual to join our Early Years Educator (Childcare) team to support and assess students in their workplace settings.

Our Early Years Educator (Childcare) qualification was introduced in September 2013. We offer the CACHE level 3 qualification, with students attending the College for 3 days and their work placement for the remainder of the week. It is a two-year course with one group of students in each year.

The course has its own classroom base which has been designed to suit student needs and the course requirements, complete with home-corner, sink and practice displays.

Your line manager will be the Head of Department for Sociology, Health & Social Care and Childcare, though on a day-to-day basis, you will work closely with our Early Years teacher who has a wide range of relevant vocational experience.

You must hold a recognised assessor qualification and have previous relevant employment experience in an early years setting. Good communication and organisational skills are also essential along with a flexible and pro-active approach.

The work will involve travelling to placements, mainly in the Scarborough, Whitby and Bridlington areas. You will therefore need a current driving licence with access to a car insured for business use.

Working times can be arranged flexibly provided the needs of the role are met.

The successful candidates will be appointed to scale point 22 of the College’s support staff pay spine, currently, paid at £18,311 p.a. for full-time (pay award pending). Actual salary will be pro-rata to the hours and weeks worked. (i.e £281.75 per month for 8 hours per week term-time only).

The contract is on a fixed term basis starting as soon as the successful candidate is available and finishing on 17 July 2018. A further contract may be available for the next academic year.

The position is for an average 8 hours per week term time only. Working times are negotiable in agreement with the line manager and are expected to be worked flexibly to meet the needs of the role – for example, more hours are worked until May half term to offset the reduced workload after May.
