Education and Engagement Specialist
If it doesn't challenge you, it won't change you.
Let's be honest, you've probably lost count of all the young people you've worked with who've either dropped out of education or been excluded. It's no surprise to you that part of the problem is that these vulnerable young people aren't being challenged in a positive way and may not have been provided with the necessary support and resources to succeed…It's just one big tunnel with no light.
A good education isn't enough. This is where you come in. Working in the community you face social, domestic and emotional issues, which are sometimes so foreign to most of society, and yet this is the reality that a huge number of young people live in. This is their world, and there's no way out… or is there?
So, what's the challenge? For you it's simple. Keep reading and decide what you're going to do next.
Fresh Start in Education Ltd. are looking for individuals who are committed to making a positive difference and seeing young people's lives turned around. With your experience in Behaviour Management / SEN / Mental Health and Teaching you could help young people by giving them a fresh start - an opportunity to see life differently, change their perspective, add a little light in that tunnel.
This work is not for the fainthearted, but for those who are emotionally resilient, non-judgemental, understanding and patient. These young people range from 5 to 18 years and carry their own emotional baggage but look at the long-term affects you could have in their life.
You'll inspire them to believe in themselves, maybe for the first time. You'll help them overcome barriers to learning and give opportunities they would never have thought of. But most importantly, you'll be that one person who never gave up, always believed and challenged them to do the same.
Now it's your challenge. What are you going to do?
To be considered to work as an Education Specialist with Fresh Start in Education, you will need to:
- Have experience in delivering education at either Primary, Secondary or FE level
- Have experience in managing challenging behaviours
- Think on your feet and easily adapt to various situations
- Be engaging, student-centred and communicate effectively
- Evidence tailored interventions and creative schemes of work
- Write lesson plans, report on student's development and assess risk
- Demonstrate an unwavering commitment to Safeguarding and Child Protection
