Sandwell is the 12th most deprived Borough in England, with no areas of affluence; learning provision is therefore available across the whole Borough to any resident. The three training centres are situated in areas of greater relative disadvantage: Tipton, West Bromwich/Wednesbury and Smethwick. Community Learning sub-contractors are used to assist in targeting areas of lower take-up, and of specific cultural groups. The curriculum delivered by the service is intended to support wider Council priorities of investing in people, businesses and jobs to help Sandwell residents to get the training and jobs that they need. The curriculum also supports the Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership objectives of reducing the number of people with no qualification and supporting those who wish to enter employment.

• Have the ability to motivate and lead other practitioners with little supervision in the subject area
• Have a passion for taking the service forward to being the best ACL provider in Sandwell
• Need to be flexible and able to work evenings and weekends on a regular basis
