Are you looking for a more rewarding career? Or keen to make a profound difference within your day to day? We’ve got just the opportunity for you as a Green Skills & Retrofit Tutor!

As you may, or may not know, there is a significant national shortage of skilled tutors in the Construction sector, and an even greater shortage of those specialising in green skills like Domestic Retrofit. As an innovative training provider, dedicated to helping people get to where they want to be, RE:geon Training is on the hunt to find skilled individuals with trade experience in the North East who are interested in becoming a tutor.

We are looking for people who can develop today’s students into tomorrow’s skilled workers. Nurturing the next generation of people will go on to build our homes, hospitals, schools, transportation and offices – while helping us combat climate change, become more energy efficient and lead us on the path to Net Zero.

As part of the RE:GEN Group, RE:geon Training is born through a desire to not only do things differently, but to do things right. We believe that individuals embarking on an entry-level career deserve access to the best training and employer opportunities, so we work hard to deliver the highest quality service of training and development out there.

Our core focus is to provide individuals with the necessary skills for work. Whether that be skills for individuals who are currently unemployed and looking for work, or those who are looking at a change in career. Whatever the reason, we are passionate about people, and we are here to transform their lives through education.

We are proud to be the only innovative, dynamic and truly unique training provider in the North East with a big focus on Construction and the green skills sector. Our courses are tailored to meet the needs of our employers and learners and in doing so, we take a flexible approach in how we deliver them. Recognising the day-to-day challenges they face and providing a stimulating, friendly and relaxed teaching and learning environment to bring it all to life.

We’re currently going through a massive expansion period and we know that we can only reach our goals with the right people beside us. We are looking for an experienced and passionate candidate, ready and raring to join our thriving team of Trainers and Assessors who are proud to deliver a range of training programmes and modules across the North East.
