This is an exciting opportunity to join our STP Team, working mainly with home-based Primary and/or Secondary pupils who are unable to attend school for medical reasons. The job involves actively supporting/facilitating work set by the home schools or delivering learning programmes from the Academy’s established curriculum. This will be a blend of face-to-face and online sessions. Previous experience of working with PMLD children and/or a background in Art & Design would be an advantage.

We have vacancies for a number of creative, well-organised and resilient professionals who have high expectations and a positive mindset. Candidates must be able to work the hours agreed on a flexible basis as our priority is always to schedule lessons at the most appropriate time for pupils and their parents/carers. Previous experience as a teacher/tutor/teaching assistant is desirable, but we will consider suitably qualified and skilled applicants from a range of educational and employment background. It is essential that you have at least a GCSE A-C (or equivalent) in English and maths along with a relevant Level 3 qualification and excellent IT skills. Due to the nature of the posts, a current valid driving licence and car access are also essential.
