Secondary Education Specialist - Feltham, London

“I’m not going back to school. You can’t make me.”

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

Fresh Start in Education's inspirational Education Specialists have a 96% success rate in reintegrating disaffected students back into education - does it sound like something you'd like to be part of?

  • Delivering bespoke education and support programmes to young people across West London
  • You’ll help them to become academically, socially and emotionally ready to re-integrate back into mainstream education

What’s in it for you?

  • The flexibility of working on a bank staff basis
  • A competitive hourly rate, and you’ll also be paid for your planning & reporting
  • Opportunities to utilise and maximise your valuable experience - and be appreciated for it
  • Autonomy in your planning and teaching
  • Support from a dedicated line manager
  • Travel, food & resources are subsidised
  • CPD
