Education and Engagement Specialist - Durham, Co. Durham

“I’ve been excluded from school... Why should I bother?”

You can’t make a young person go to school and you can’t make them learn.

So, what can you do?

Fresh Start in Education have a 96% success rate in reintegrating disaffected students back into education. Does this sound like something you’d like to be part of?

You’ll be working 1:1 with a student that will benefit from your specific experience and skill set. He might not want to know you to begin with, but that’s where the challenge comes in. You'll work with him over 6-12 weeks and be dedicated to encouraging his learning through creative and resourceful sessions.

Here are the basics:

  • Working on a bank staff agreement – offering you flexibility
  • Located in Durham
  • A competitive hourly rate plus additional payment for planning

What’s in it for you?

  • Autonomy of teaching but fully supported with a dedicated line manager
  • A bank of resources available to you to use or modify
  • Travel, food and resource are subsidised
  • CPD training offered and encouraged
  • Invitation to an annual conference for all Education Specialists – a great opportunity to meet your colleagues, have lunch and attend interesting conferences with SEN specific keynote speakers

What do you need to work for Fresh Start?

  • Experience of supporting, planning and differentiating lessons for students with SEN and those who have been excluded from school
  • Experience of teaching Maths and English Functional Skills
  • The ability and willingness to drive the student to the daily sessions
  • A range of experience in engagement and behaviour management techniques
  • Be non-judgemental, patient, emotionally resilient and person-centred
