Education Specialist

Why should I go to school? You can't make me!

For young people with SEN & SEMH needs, the very idea of going to school fills them with anxiety, dread and fear. School for most children is a place to learn, have fun and socialise but for those with barriers to learning it can feel like a nightmare. The longer they're out of school, the worse it gets. As time progresses, their feelings of loneliness and despair only grow, and they fall further behind.

Fresh Start in Education are looking for outstanding individuals to help these young people see that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

What can you do?

You can help give them a chance by utilising your knowledge, skills and experience in a way you've always wanted to. Plan bespoke learning programmes designed around their needs and deliver them on a 1:1 basis.

  • You'll work on a bank staff contract, giving you a healthy work/life balance
  • Work within your local area in placements lasting 6 to 12 weeks
  • Sessions will take place on a 1:1 basis during the week
  • Competitive hourly rates plus additional payment for planning & reporting

What’s in it for you?

  • Autonomy in your planning & teaching with support from a dedicated Education Coordinator
  • A bank of resources available to you to use or modify
  • Travel, food and resources are subsidised
  • CPD training offered and encouraged
