Skylar Level 3 Educator


Hours: 30 hours per week (Tue – Fri)
Salary: £25,000 FTE
Location: Penzance – some local travel possible

Trelya is looking for a dynamic, creative, passionate and dedicated Level 3 Early Years Educator to join the team at Skylar. Skylar is an Ofsted registered Early Years Provision based in Penzance which has been rated OUTSTANDING in its first inspection. Skylar is a groundbreaking, exciting initiative aiming to reduce inequality and give children a fairer start. Skylar benefits from working as part of the innovative charity, Trelya, supporting families and children in Penwith.

Trelya (the Cornish word for ‘change’), is an award-winning charity working to enable positive change in West Cornwall’s most under resourced communities. We know from experience that the children, young people and families living in our communities are unique and skilled individuals with incredible potential. Trelya creates opportunities to fulfil that potential through provision of Skylar (rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted), an award-winning youth work and mentoring programme and ‘Gul,’ which is one of Cornwall’s successful trauma informed employment and training programmes.

Trelya is one of only a few projects that works with young people from prebirth through the life course and our outcomes demonstrate this makes a huge difference to ending the cycle of generational poverty and social exclusion. Trelya recognises the critical role early years’ care and education can play in a child’s development and the importance of excellent practitioners. Skylar delivers the best in early years’ care practice from prebirth to 4 years old, to those who need it most and their families, who would simply not be able to access it otherwise.
