Functional Skills Tutor - Bristol

Are you able to engage, teach and inspire learners with SEN?

For some young people, the world can sometimes feel daunting and overwhelming.

Everyday life can be a struggle as they wrestle with trying to process what's going on around them, and the challenges they face can lead to a struggle in engaging with their family, peers and education. Mainstream education environments often don't have the time, resources or specialist knowledge to provide the tailored support they require, and that's where Fresh Start in Education come in.

Fresh Start are looking for experienced individuals to work with young people on a 1:1 basis. As their Education Specialist, you'll plan & deliver a bespoke learning programme designed around their interests and needs.

What does a typical placement look like?

  • Each placement is bespoke to the student's requirements and typically run for 6 to 12 weeks (but can be on-going)
  • Sessions can vary between 3-5 hours in length and can take place over 2-5 days per week (Monday to Friday).
  • We have already met with the student to assess their education, interests, dislikes and potential challenges to give you all the knowledge and tools to create and deliver engaging sessions.
  • You will have the autonomy to create and deliver your own session plans to utilise your skills, expertise, and creativity.
  • Your dedicated coordinator will be on hand to support you by phone, email and text

What benefits do you offer?

  • Receive new and varying placements throughout the year
  • Length of service awards
  • Ongoing professional development and training opportunities
  • Our two consecutive Silver Award’s through Investors in People, reiterates how strongly we feel about the wellbeing of our staff.

What are we looking for?

  • Teaching and SEN experience (you don’t need to be a qualified teacher)
  • Unwavering commitment to Safeguarding
  • Resilience, patience, creativity, and empathy
  • Experience in engaging a young person and adapt education to their needs and interests
  • Having worked with children who exhibit challenging behaviour
