Personal Development Tutor (Prince’s Trust Team Programme)

We have two exciting opportunities to join one of Suffolk’s most energetic charities who are looking to expand their provision across Suffolk and Essex.   Inspire Suffolk is a charity recognised and valued for the work undertaken with young people experiencing severe disadvantage and social instability, who need opportunities for purposeful reintegration into society.

The Team Programme works in partnership with The Prince’s Trust, working to develop the lives of unemployed 16 to 25 year olds living in Suffolk, by offering support to those looking to make positive life decisions, helping them to improve their confidence and move on to new opportunities. The programme is completely free to those who participate.


The main purpose of the role is to recruit, select and lead a Team of individuals through the Team programme. The Team Leader facilitates and encourages Team achievements, while guiding each Team member on an individual learning journey.

Responsibilities include planning and delivering the Team 12-week personal development programme in line with the Team Programme Toolkit requirements and any funders’ specifications, taking responsibility for the health, safety and welfare of the Team during all parts of the programme, and setting programme objectives to meet both team and individual needs to deliver the expected learning outcomes.


You will be a self-starter with the ability to work under pressure. The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate an interest in supporting young people with a view to directing them towards positive outcomes such as full or part-time work, further education or other forms of vocational training. An understanding and ‘empathy’ with the work of Inspire Suffolk is also essential.

Teaching/Tutoring qualifications and experience of mentoring would be an advantage to this role. In addition, candidates should have experience of working with this target group. A full driving license is essential as regular travel will be a requirement of the role.

Full time: 37.5 hours (some unsocial hours of working will be necessary in this post).

Salary: £20,000 (depending on experience)

Location: Ipswich & West Suffolk (Sudbury to Haverhill)

Closing date: Friday, 8th November 2019 at 9:00am
