You will demonstrate excellent teaching and learning practice in both face to face and online environments and alongside teaching the Award in Support Work in Schools qualification, you will be delivering pastoral support, overseeing work experience, and teaching some entry-level English and maths for learners taking this pathway. As part of a small, supportive team of highly dedicated tutors you will be taking an active role in the shared planning of lessons and contributing to curriculum development and improvements.
During the current climate of COVID recovery, we are ideally placed to respond quickly and effectively to the needs of our community’s young adult learners so your awareness of the challenges and opportunities young adults are facing will help you to play your part in providing our high-quality service.
