A fantastic and rare opportunity has arisen for someone to join our Outdoor Education provision as an Adventure Group Tutor. 

Our Adventure  Tutors deliver innovative and engaging lessons in beautiful locations such in the Peak District National Park as well as more local wild spaces around Derbyshire.  Our  team work from the Adventure & Sports Hub in Pleasley where they benefit from excellent amenities including classrooms and large indoor spaces to practise skills and techniques.

Our ideal candidate will be someone who has a passion for supporting children and young people to challenge themselves beyond the classroom and embrace the outdoors taking part in activities and pursuits such as rock climbing & abseiling, kayaking, canoeing, caving, hiking and much more.

The successful candidate must be someone who has experience of leading groups of children and young people in the mentioned activities, has a high level of understanding when working with young people who have SEN and/or challenging behaviour and are confident in managing riskier activities and pursuits according to their National Governing Body qualifications.

The role will be based at our Pleasley site in Mansfield, and transport is provided to our working sites.  Due to the nature and location of the activities and pursuits,  travel to and from appropriate locations like the Peak National Park is on a frequent and regular basis. We therefore ask anyone applying for this role to have a full driving licence enabling the  transportation of  learners either in our R.E.A.L. minibus or R.E.A.L car.

This is a full-time permanent position, operating Monday to Friday 8.30am to 4pm term time only. The starting salary is £21,000 per annum up to £25,000 per annum.

In return, we will offer you 5 days paid dependency leave a year, access to the company’s Westfield Health, support your continuous professional development and provide a bereavement insurance policy.

 We believe that building trust and positive  relationships with learners is key to successful intervention. If this is something you believe in, then please contact us at applications@real-education.org for a campaign pack.

Closing Date: Wednesday  19th June 2024

Provisional Interview Date: TBC

R.E.A.L. Education is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. Therefore all candidates will be subjected to Safer Recruitment checks and will not be able to commence employment without a satisfactory DBS and two references.
