GBWR is going through an unprecedented period of success and growth. The need for additional volunteers and officials is essential to ensure competitive events can take place. This is reflected in this current advert as these additional volunteers and officials will receive education and training from GBWR Educators.

Quality assurance is vital to achieve a credible and high quality GBWR Education Programme that meets the needs of everyone involved. One of the key quality assurance investments that GBWR will make is in the recruitment and training of Educators who deliver the GBWR Education Programme. To maintain our high standards only those on the GBWR Educator register would deliver GBWR Education courses and workshops.

We are keen to hear from candidates with strong leadership qualities and practical officiating/volunteering experience who would like to be part of a dedicated team of Educators delivering the GBWR Education Programme. Experience of teaching, instructing, tutoring and/or leading groups would be advantageous.

All Educators will be recruited under the following criteria:

  • Experience of tutoring and/or facilitation
  • Experience in, or knowledge of, assessment principles and practice would be advantageous
  • Actively officiating
  • A positive attitude towards the development of wheelchair rugby and support the aims and objectives of GBWR
  • Detailed knowledge of the GBWR competition rules

Whilst these criteria serve as a useful guide, we will consider an application from anyone who feels they are suitably qualified.

Successful applicants will be required to complete a two day GBWR Educator Training Course which will cover tutoring skills as well as ensuring candidates are comfortable with the GBWR Education delivery notes. Following this initial training, further support will be provided by GBWR to meet individual needs.

  • The cost of attending the GBWR Educator Training Course will be paid for by GBWR. This includes travelling expenses, accommodation expenses and subsistence whilst at the training. Tutors are not reimbursed for their time for attending training.
  • Once trained, accredited tutors will be paid travelling expenses, accommodation expenses (where appropriate and with prior agreement from the GBWR) and a fee of £20 per hour of delivery on a GBWR course.
