Education and Engagement Specialist
Are you afraid of me?
I'm a 10-year-old girl who likes music, going to the cinema with my mates and stuffing my face with popcorn. I'm not a pink kind of girl and really hate school. My teacher told me not to come back. No one wants to help me. Do you?
What if I told you I get angry very quickly?
Sometimes I don't know why. Sometimes I end up kicking, biting and screaming. When you try to make me read a book I might swear and throw stuff at you. When I go to the cinema I get so excited by the loud noise and bright colours I panic and throw popcorn everywhere. Sometimes I get on with my mum, but a lot of the time I hate her.
Still want to help me?
Fresh Start in Education Ltd. are looking for individuals with a wide variety of skills and expertise in engaging and educating young people, especially those with Special Educational Needs and who face multiple barriers to learning.
Some of these vulnerable young people may not have attended school for some time, or might be facing permanent exclusion, but if you're an engaging individual who's committed to keeping young people safe and giving them a second chance, then you could be what we're looking for.
You will need to be emotionally resilient, non-judgemental and understanding. You will need some experience with SEN and be able to demonstrate a variety of engagement strategies and adaptable teaching methods. You'll also need to show your ability to plan lessons, report on your student's development and show an unwavering commitment to safeguarding and child protection as this is central to everything we do.
Your ability to successfully manage challenging behaviours and to calmly think on your feet when under pressure will speak volumes to these young people. Your sensitive and down-to-earth nature will enable the young person to thrive and give them the freedom to express themselves, whilst feeling safe and accepted. Your enthusiasm to engage, your commitment to Safeguarding and your ability to de-escalate challenging situations are crucial to successfully overcoming your student's barriers to learning.
There will be many opportunities to use your creative skills and teaching styles at Fresh Start in Education, so if this sounds like something you've been looking for then please call us on 020 3409 3139 or click 'Apply' below.
