A workers' cooperative growing food on London's edge in the Lea Valley

Job Opportunity: Adult Learning

Adult Learning Worker

We are looking for an Adult Learning Worker to join our Cooperative in our Community Learning and Inclusion team at OrganicLea. We deliver Level 1 and Level 2 horticulture qualifications for adults at our market garden and in community settings. We have direct claims status with both City and Guilds and the National Open College Network and we offer these courses to fee payers and those who are unemployed or economically inactive. In order to secure funding for this work we have several Adult Education contracts which come with specific paperwork requirements and we need a member of our team with an eye for detail and compliance to ensure we can get this paperwork correct for each learner.

This role is 3 days per week (must include Tuesdays) with the potential to expand. It sits within the Community Learning and Inclusion (CLI) team where we put people at the centre of all we do. This team have skills in project coordination, compliance and paperwork, progression support, community partnership work, formal and informal adult education and training across ages and abilities, mental health awareness and a strong track record of spotting opportunities and making things happen. This team works closely together, sharing responsibilities to bring people and plants together.

We aim to:

  • Support more people to grow food through formal accredited training, work experience, volunteering and community learning activities.
  • Support health and well-being through engagement in green space; encouraging an informed and reflective relationship with food.
  • Build community and challenge marginalisation.

All of this is linked with our enterprise and market gardening work as part of our mission to reimagine an equitable food system. If you have a passion for horticulture, for helping people learn and realise their potential in an outdoor work-based setting and are excited by the development of Hawkwood as a place for food growing alongside adult education, then we want to hear from you.

More detailed tasks and responsibilities, the skills and qualities we are seeking, are set out in the Job Pack which also includes our application form and link to a monitoring survey.

Deadline for applications is Thursday 12 January 2023 at 6pm.
