What you’ll do as a Funeral Vocational Trainer

As a Funeral Vocational Trainer, you’ll enjoy the flexibility of working from home and also get the chance to hit the road and visit different sites within your region to meet your learners face to face.

It’s a balanced mix! You’ll typically spend around 2-3 days per week at these sites, and here’s the best part: you’ll have the freedom to arrange your own work schedule.

Here’s what your daily duties will look like:

Coaching and supporting your apprentices throughout their course, guiding them on their learning journey and providing them with the support they need to succeed.
You’ll kick things off by carrying out enrolments and initial assessments with your learners, making sure you understand their individual learning needs from the get-go.
Delivering and embedding Functional Skills (maths and English) into the learning curriculum, empowering apprentices with essential knowledge for their culinary careers.
Delivering a blend of virtual and face-to-face sessions with your apprentices and their employers, travelling to different employer sites and workplaces throughout your region.
Helping your learners advance through their qualifications using a variety of methods, including careful observation, assessing their work products, gathering written evidence, and engaging in professional discussions.
Keeping things organised is key. You’ll make sure all the regulatory and financial information for each apprentice is accurate and properly maintained.
We’re proud of what we do, and as an ambassador for Connect2Care, you’ll play a vital role in promoting our organisation to employers and your local connections. It’s all about spreading the word!
