EasyEnglish Training Coordinator

MissionAssist

We are looking for a gifted mentor to help people learn how to write in EasyEnglish.  This is an opportunity for someone who is already familiar with EasyEnglish or who is willing to commit to a steep learning curve and start at the beginning of the training themselves.  We are planning ahead for the retirement of the current EasyEnglish Training Coordinator to allow time for you to learn and practise with their support.

Books and commentaries written in EasyEnglish are easy to read and simple to understand. EasyEnglish is ideal for people learning English as an additional language or for groups with mixed reading abilities. Translations into EasyEnglish use a limited vocabulary, short sentences and fixed rules for grammar, defined by MissionAssist. Training in the principles and methods of EasyEnglish translation is provided exclusively by MissionAssist.

This is a voluntary position working from home.

Overall Responsibility

To provide EasyEnglish training for MissionAssist members and some external trainees.

Key Tasks

  • Receive the names of new members from the Welcome Team then introduce yourself and the EasyEnglish training, by email or telephone.
  • Maintain contact with trainees to encourage and support them as they work through the training at their own pace.
  • Provide general training materials, plus specific feedback and advice, in response to each individual trainee's progress.
  • Seek and respond to feedback to improve the existing training materials and process, in collaboration with the wider EasyEnglish team.
  • Ensure that each member who completes the training is handed over to a team such as EasyEnglish Books or EasyEnglish Bible.

Required Skills or Abilities

  • Good understanding of English grammar.
  • Excellent communication skills, including confidence with email.
  • Experience of teaching or translation or both would be ideal. 
  • Experience of distance learning would be an advantage.

We provide training in the principles and methods of EasyEnglish translation and composition.
