Training and Education Practitioner

An exciting opportunity to help us grow our training and education service.

Hours 37.5 per week
Salary £30,125 gross per annum
Contract Full-time - Temporary
Notes Full driving license required.


The Training and Education Practitioner will coordinate, develop, and deliver a wide range of equality, diversity, inclusion and hate crime training and consultancy packages for a variety of agencies and organisations including schools and youth-related agencies. The overarching aim of this post is to further our preventative aims and objectives by raising awareness of the nature, extent, and impact of prejudice, discrimination, and hate.

Working in conjunction with another Training and Education Practitioner, the post holder is also required to educate and equip clients with the skills to prevent and tackle these negative behaviours whilst promoting positive cultures and values to maximise the positive difference SARI makes in the communities we serve. 

This role is income generating and will be developing SARI’s traded services in training and education. The aim is for the post holder to raise the income to cover the cost of the role after one year and to generate additional income over and above the costs of the role within two years. This income would then help fund our frontline services. Furthermore, throughout all delivery, the role will promote knowledge of and use of SARI’s services and will deliver in-house training to SARI staff, service users or Board members where appropriate.

A few of your responsibilities will include:

  • Developing and delivering training sessions, information and awareness talks to a range of audiences from frontline to senior staff.
  • Developing and delivering interventions for schools and youth related agencies including workshops, classroom sessions, assemblies, and staff and governor training.
  • Seeking opportunities for new contracts both locally and nationally to build SARI’s training and education traded services.
  • Preparing and delivering proposals where we are invited to tender for a training, education, or consultancy contract.

A successful candidate is likely to have experience of:

  • Delivering equalities-related and skills-based training and education to a range of audiences using interactive and experiential approaches.
  • Understanding of the UK education framework and systems including national curriculum, complaints procedures, appeals procedures, and school and authority structures.
  • Ability to work calmly, professionally and effectively with children, young people and adults who are or have been traumatised, stressed, and emotional, and who may have emotional and wellbeing needs.
  • Relevant training or education qualification e.g. PGCE.

Please note: this is a one year fixed term contract with the potential to become permanent.


  • 25 days annual leave (plus bank holidays) rising by an additional day for each year of service to a maximum of 30 days
  • Hybrid working
  • Flexible working
  • External group supervision
  • External 1-to-1 trauma-informed supervision
