SEN Specialist Teacher - Wembley, Greater London

Are you one of the 75%?

You love teaching and you really want to make a difference, but the long hours, planning and marking make your work/life balance impossible. Sound familiar?

75% of teachers reluctantly leave the profession within 5 years from qualifying. Put an end to those 60-hour weeks - there is another way.

Fresh Start in Education are an interim provider of specialist education (SEN) to young people from all walks of life. They’re vulnerable, disengaged, rejected and face various and sometimes multiple barriers to learning and development. You’ll be planning and delivering bespoke learning programmes on a 1:1 basis, based on the young person’s needs and interests. All provisions are based outside of the school setting.

Here are the basics:

  • 40 hours per week including planning, prep, marking AND travel. (No more 60-hour weeks)

  • Full time, permanent role
