Education and Engagement Specialist - Hounslow, Greater London

“I just don’t understand. You can’t make me do it.”

You and I both know that students with Special Educational Needs don’t fit the mainstream model and that it takes a patient, creative and non-judgemental individual to engage and support them with their learning and development. Alongside your experience of teaching children with a range of SEN and SEMH issues, these qualities will be vital in giving Fresh Start in Education’s young people a second chance.

Are you this person? Do you have time in your week to support society’s most vulnerable young people?

Here are the basics:

  • Working on a bank staff contract – offering you a healthy work/life balance
  • Located in and around West London
  • Competitive hourly rates plus additional payment for planning and reports
  • Placements last 6-12 weeks – hours may vary

What’s in it for you?

  • Autonomy of teaching but fully supported with a dedicated Education Co-ordinator
  • A bank of resources available to you to use or modify
  • Travel, food and resources subsidised per session
  • CPD training offered and encouraged
  • Opportunity to attend Fresh Start's annual national conference

What do you need to work for Fresh Start?

  • Experience of planning and delivering lessons for students with SEN and SEMH, particularly those with ASD
  • Have taught children at both Key Stages 1 and 2 (QTS is desired but not essential)
  • You’ll need to be a naturally empathetic, engaging and easily approachable person
  • Be committed to Safeguarding and Child Protection
  • Have a good standard of IT competency
  • The ability to write effective risk assessments and reports on sessions
