Engagement and Education Specialist - Saffron Walden, Essex

”You know nothing about me.”

Many of our young people have experienced significant trauma in their young lives. It’s understandable why they feel alone, disengaged and defensive. It’s understandable that many now experience social, emotional and mental health issues.

Do you have the empathy, resilience and creativity to work 1:1 with a young person of KS3/4 age who needs your understanding, patience and resilience?

  • Located in and around the Saffron Walden, Cambridgeshire area
  • Competitive hourly rates plus additional payment for planning and reports
  • Placements last 6-12 weeks – hours may vary

What’s in it for you?

  • Opportunity to utilise and maximise your valuable experience - and be appreciated for it
  • Autonomy of teaching but fully supported with a dedicated education manager
  • Travel, food and resources subsidised per session
  • CPD training offered and encouraged
  • Opportunity to attend Fresh Start's annual national conference in London

What do you need to work for Fresh Start and with their young people in this area?

  • Experience of planning and delivering education for young people of KS3 and/or KS4 age
  • Experience supporting young people with additional needs, in particular with SEMH
  • Experience of working with young people who may be violent and self-harm
