About Us

We are TwentyTwenty, a charity dedicated to building bright futures for young people. We help 11 – 24 year olds who find themselves disadvantaged and disengaged to achieve sustained further education or employment. 

We provide support through a range of integrated projects that utilise our award-winning Lifeskills centres based in Derby and Leicester. Each centre is a true learning community and a supportive hub where students meet with teachers, counsellors, mentors and local business volunteers who are all committed helping them succeed.  

We’re currently looking for a Functional Skills Teacher to deliver Maths, English and ICT lessons at our Lifeskills Centre in Derby.

If you are a teaching professional with a passion for engaging and supporting young people, this is an exciting opportunity to equip young people with the practical and academic knowledge they need to succeed. 

Many of the young people we support are disadvantaged and disengaged, but brimming with potential. You will play a vital role in building their confidence and providing them with the tools they need to achieve their goals.

The Role

As a Functional Skills Teacher, you will deliver a range of Maths, English and ICT lessons to students at our Derby Lifeskills Centre through City and Guilds.

- Get young people ready to pass formal exams up to Level 2
- Mark and assess classroom work, coursework and exams 
- Effectively manage behaviour and resolve any classroom conflict
- Collate young people’s ideas and use them in your lessons  
- Foster a positive learning environment in the Centre by creating visual displays 

About You

To join us as a Functional Skills Teacher, you’ll need: 

- Knowledge and experience of classroom management strategies and more general behaviour management
- Knowledge and experience in education, including writing schemes of work, getting students ready for assessments, embedding, differentiation, mapping and examination processes
- An excellent awareness of disadvantaged NEET (Not in Employment, Education or Training) young people’s needs/concerns and the ability to engage them
