Are you a flexible, imaginative and well-organised individual with a passion for supporting and guiding apprentices to success?
Do you want to begin a truly rewarding career and make a real difference by training a new generation within the Horticulture industry? Then this could be the job for you!
REASEHEATH TRAINING offers apprenticeships in a range of sectors and levels to match the career aspirations of learners interested in Construction, Food and Drink (Process Operator, Butchery, and Advanced Dairy Technology), Agriculture, Animal Care, Construction Plant, Horticulture, Equine, Engineering, Motor Vehicle and much more.
Reaseheath Training is the work-based learning arm of Reaseheath College and is seeking to appoint an Assessor Trainer to support the Apprenticeship Team and train and assess a caseload of apprentices at all levels working in the Horticulture sector.
We are a dynamic and busy team who, working closely with employers, seek to maximise apprentices’ potential by developing their skills in the workplace to support them in achieving their career aspirations and vision.
As a Trainer and Assessor in Horticulture, you will manage, review and train a caseload of apprentices who are based in the workplace and ensure that the success rates of apprentices remain at the level set by the College.
Duties will include: assessing the progress of apprentices; maintaining up-to-date records of assessment; supporting employers with the learning and teaching of their apprentices; creating a training plan for employers using agreed Standards; designing individual learning and development package to meet their needs; and delivering workshops, one-to-one instruction and training sessions relating to knowledge, skills and behaviour development.
Additionally, you will be expected to provide regular and purposeful reports to employers, apprentices and the college so that there is a clear plan which is time-bound for each apprentice, and which allows completion with agreed target dates. You will provide information, advice and guidance throughout the qualification to help apprentices get the best of the programme and to help with next steps in their academic journey.
Part of this role will involve setting up work placements with employers as well as building working relationships with employers to ensure that all apprentices receive a smooth and consistent learning experience.
