The successful candidate will deliver training to (and assess) students in Certificate IV in Outdoor Recreation.

The ability to develop a good rapport with students, and present as a friendly, professional and helpful team member is essential in this position. A culturally sensitive nature is required as well as a flexible attitude as the scope and nature of courses offered and other conditions can change as the Academy continues to grow and adapt to industry requirements.

Casual Trainers are employed on a contract period as agreed to at the time of employment. This contract automatically rolls over each term if no changes are requested by management or trainer. Candidates looking to make a long-term commitment to the position and Academy are preferred.

The available days of delivery are located at our Carina (Brisbane) and Southport (Gold Coast) Campuses on Tuesday and Wednesday (8.15am-4.15pm). Additional days may be available to the right candidate to deliver Certificates 1, 2 and 3 in Sports and Recreation and development days may also be added. The business day is 8 hours long including a 30 min lunch break. Our Academic Calendar includes 40 weeks of tuition and 12 weeks of holidays each year. Casual trainers will have reduced hours during holiday periods unless they are rostered on for course development or validation.
