“What is the point in school anyway? It’s not like I want to get a job!”

Have you heard this before? Do you have what it takes to reignite the spark for those young people who have no interest in education, no aspirations, no hope?

Fresh Start in Education work with exactly these types of young people all across Surrey and London. Some with multiple and complex barriers to learning - Autism, Dyslexia, ADHD etc., some who are victims of abuse, others may have been involved in gangs and crime. One thing they all have in common is the need for someone like you to help turn things around, show them a better way and instil hope.

  • Undertaking Risk Assessments and embedding safeguarding practices in your work.
  • Communicating regularly with your line manager (Education Coordinator).

What do you need?

  • Experience in working with young people with SEN and complex needs.
  • Commitment and knowledge of Safeguarding and Child Protection.
  • Ability to create interactive and engaging sessions.
  • Computing Literacy Skills.
  • Emotional resilience and a non-judgemental character.
  • Your own transport and 2 days availability per week.
