Education Coordinator - Folkestone

Are you working in education and looking for something different?

The joy of teaching in the UK is not what it once was. But don’t take my word for it. Ask the 30,000 + qualified teachers who quit in the last 12 months. So, what else is out there about where you can still use your skills, experience and love for teaching?

Fresh Start in Education Ltd., a specialist provider of education for vulnerable and challenged young people, are looking for you to join their Education Team at their office in Folkestone, Kent. This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone who is interested in providing young people with a second chance in education and helping children with SEN successfully integrate back into education.

You will be responsible for ensuring that your students are receiving the very best education and support, through liaising with your own group of Education Specialists, overseeing sessions, monitoring reports and organising timetables. It’s fast moving job where every day can be different and it’s a lot of fun too.
