The Role

Cornerstone is one of the largest third sector providers of Health and Social Care in Scotland. We strive to ensure the people we support live a valued life by ensuring all colleagues receive the highest quality training and personal development through our Training Academy. We are an SQA and ILM approved centre and our award-winning team offer a holistic range of training interventions across healthcare and management.

Your role will include creating training course content along with updating and delivering the necessary content to a high standard. Through your creativity and passion for developing others you will facilitate a range of relevant workshops for learners. This rewarding role will allow you to draw on your experience of the Social Care sector to provide professional assessment and support to candidates in their workplaces, enabling them to realise their career potential.

As a Trainer, you will support the Training Academy team to ensure E-learning and Classroom courses fit with a blended approach to training delivery and support the facilitation of employability programmes such as the Princes Trust.
