Firth Park Academy is proud to be a Good school and determined to become an Outstanding school. We are a wonderfully diverse family of students and staff where our vision is to inspire all students to lead remarkable lives. We offer the widest range of extra-curricular enrichment possible to ensure our students are rich in knowledge and character. We want students to achieve academic excellence, develop strength of character and above all else, be happy.  Our school is:

  • A stronger-than-ever ‘Good’ school as rated by Ofsted (March 2019).
  • Home of an Extended School Day for Years 7 and 11 to ensure the broadest possible curriculum of academic learning and extra-curricular experiences
  • Featured on CBBC’s series Our School 3, which highlights the successful transition students make into Year 7.
  • A richly diverse community with students speaking more than 30 home languages.
  • A leading school in our trust – Academies Enterprise Trust – the largest trust in the UK with more career development opportunities than any other.

We love to help our students learn and value the staff who help them do so, thanks to:

  • A real ethos of family where we all value strong positive relationships and support each other.
  • An outstanding professional development programme for staff at all stages of their career.

If you have a passion for education, are able to help support opportunities for learning and progress whether inside or out come rain, hail or shine and love working as part of a team, you could be the person we are looking for!

About the Achieve team

Achieve are a committed and enthusiastic team which includes a Team Leader, a qualified Careers Advisor and other tutors. Achieve provide a variety of academic support for underachieving students within the school, including:

  • 1:1 and small group tutoring
  • Mentoring
  • Home visits
  • Targeted in-class support and withdrawing students from lessons for study support 
  • Small group workshops, for example to improve students’ study skills
  • A range of trips (for example to colleges/Universities/employers) and other aspiration-raising experiences for students.

About the role

We want to expand our Achieve team to include another tutor who would ideally be a Maths or English specialist. This role would be well suited to a graduate who is looking to gain experience in education or an experienced English or Maths Tutor who is looking for a more varied role.

If your application is successful, you will:

  • Mentor a caseload of underachieving students, supporting them to achieve their full potential.
  • Deliver 1:1 and small group tuition.
  • Support students with work from a range of school subjects, including subjects outside your specialism (training will be provided but there is a need to be adaptable and versatile).
  • Build strong partnerships with parents/carers and other stakeholders.
  • Liaise with other staff about students’ progress.
  • Work closely with the Achieve Team Leader and other tutors, working as a team towards shared goals.
  • Assist with the planning and delivery of workshops to small groups of students, for example to enhance students’ study skills.
  • Coordinate a range of aspiration-raising projects, and look for opportunities to use initiative to develop new projects.
