Govanhill Community Development Trust

Govanhill Community Development Trust promotes the social, economic and environmental regeneration of Govanhill.  We do this through the provision of affordable workspaces locally and a programme of community development activity.  We are a wholly-owned subsidiary of Govanhill Housing Association – a community controlled Registered Social Landlord operating in the Govanhill and Merrylee areas of Glasgow.  The Association owns and manages 2,800 homes and provides a Factoring Service to a further 1,400 owners.  It has a substantial Development, Major Repairs and Planned Maintenance Programme and delivers wider regeneration activity in partnership with Govanhill Community Development Trust.  

We are seeking an experienced worker to support the delivery of our National Lottery Community Fund supported ESOL classes and wider family learning programme.  Joining an existing team, this post will ensure we have a skilled, multi-talented team to support residents of Govanhill to develop their literacy and English skills.

The ESOL and Family Learning Worker will work with two existing postholders to develop and deliver a curriculum of classes to improve language and literacy.  These are currently online, but we are currently moving to a blended model of community and online delivery.  We support those acquiring basic literacy skills and three levels of English learners.  We also work in partnership with local schools and partners to deliver a family learning programme.  The postholder will develop and deliver this work.  A CELTA or TESOL qualification is a requirement of this role as is experience of supporting those with basic literacy.

To deliver this role it is essential you have demonstrable experience of teaching, ideally in a community-based setting.  As we are moving towards accredited training centre status, any experience of assessing and verifying attainment will be very useful.  Experience of organising and delivering online lessons and activities is essential.  Knowledge of a language spoken in Govanhill would be helpful, as would experience of organising events and community engagement activities.  This is a challenging but rewarding role where you will make a real difference to people’s lives and join a supportive wider team.  If this sounds appealing, we’d love to hear from you.
