Education and Engagement Specialist - Coventry, West Midlands

Can you be a champion for young people who have SEN?

For those young people who have SEN, school can be a daunting and alien place. Despite the best efforts of their teachers, there just isn't the time, money or resources to provide them with the support they so desperately need. Accessing lessons and learning feels impossible and it spirals from there. They either don't want to go to school or they can't because they've been excluded. Without the support network or a voice championing their needs, there's little hope of them reaching their potential in education and beyond.

That's not the end of the story, however.

By working as an Education Specialist for Fresh Start in Education, YOU can become their champion and give them hope of a brighter future.

You'll create and deliver bespoke learning programmes on a 1:1 basis to the students that Fresh Start supports. Centred around their needs, your sessions will develop their social, emotional and academic skills, enabling them to eventually transition back into school successfully. The time spent with them will be a powerful tool in helping them to thrive once they've returned to full-time education.

Here are the basics:

  • You'll be working on a Bank Staff contract in placements lasting 6 to 12 weeks
  • Sessions are on a 1:1 basis and can range from 2 to 5 days per week
  • You're matched to students based on availability, location & experience
  • Utilising your expertise, you'll plan & deliver bespoke learning programmes to children across Warwickshire

What’s in it for you?

  • Autonomy in your planning and teaching with an emphasis on creative & child-centred sessions
  • Support from a dedicated Education Coordinator
  • Subsidised travel, food and resources
  • Competitive hourly rates with an additional planning & reporting payment per session

What do you need to work for Fresh Start?

  • An unwavering commitment to Safeguarding and a resilient, child-centred approach
  • Experience of supporting and teaching Primary or Secondary-aged young people, particularly those with SEN such as Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • A proven track record of delivering a ranje of subjects including English & Maths
  • A dedicated, resilient and creative personality
