YMCA is arguably the most recognisable and iconic of all global charity brands – trusted throughout the world to deliver outstanding, innovative and socially responsible activities for young people and the wider community.
YMCAfit has over 30 years’ experience creating health and fitness career pathways for individuals, through our range of quality qualifications. Every year we train over 5,500 people who are entering or working within the fitness industry. Most recently, our Fitness Training Academy (FTA) study programme has been supporting a wide range of learners into the industry, providing routes to apprenticeship study, higher education or employment.
Do you want to be a part of this? We have an exciting opportunity for a Programme Tutor, based in London, to join the FTA on a part time (3 days per week), term time basis. Offered on a freelance or fixed term basis, this is a perfect opportunity for a fitness professional to design and deliver inspirational programmes that engage and motivate young people to progress and achieve.
If you’re looking to start or to grow your own fitness training business, or supplement your income, this should be interesting to you. You will be responsible for managing and delivering diverse learning opportunities for a group of learners - from initial interview assessment right through to accreditation. You will utilise a variety of teaching techniques across a range of qualification types and levels, including functional skills and GCSE Maths and English.
You’ll be experienced at managing group dynamics, with excellent communication skills and great rapport building ability. You’ll be highly organised, with demonstrated planning and time-management skills. You’ll be flexible, enthusiastic, and motivated to work with our wide range of learners to deliver a high quality outcome.
Are you up for the challenge? This opportunity will be particularly exciting for those with the following skills and experience:
- PGCE/Cert in Education or L5 Diploma in Education and Training
- Qualified to a minimum of Level 3 in a personal trainer related subject
- Teaching young people aged 16-19, including varying behaviour management needs to Ofsted standards
