Peripatetic Singing Tutor, Kent

Closing date:

The Leigh AcademyKent

Date posted:
Start date: Early September 2019
Contract type: Part Time
Salary: Up to £30/hour
Contract term: Temporary

The Leigh Academy has a fantastic business opportunity for a self-employed Singing Tutor who would like to work with our students from September 2019 onwards.  Offering your services half a day per week (Wednesday afternoons) during term time, the role will enable you to work with our students either on an individual basis or in small groups.  Sessions last either 15 minutes or 30 minutes in duration and we have a good student uptake next year, hence the need to increase capacity across our Music curriculum. It would be of real benefit if our Singing Tutor has experience in and is confident delivering rap as we have a number of students who create their own grime music and could use some additional inspiration and guidance! 

Interviews will be conducted towards the end of the summer holidays with our successful candidate as soon as possible thereafter.  

Working with The Leigh Academy:  The Leigh Academy is a secondary school at the heart of the community and our small school model ensures that each and every student gets the personal support and challenge they need to reach their full potential. The academy is divided into four Colleges: Brunel, Chaucer, Darwin and Da Vinci - each has their own personality and range of specialisms, allowing them to be unique.  Our academy is a dynamic and exciting place to work and the fantastic Leadership Team are committed to making it a great place to work for staff at all stages in their careers.  Our award winning building and facilities are modern, light and airy and the open learning plazas and classrooms built around a day-lit wintergarden give the academy a unique and special character.

Diversity at our core:  As a Trust we are passionate about diversity and recognise that as individuals we all bring something unique to the role regardless of age, gender, race, beliefs or disabilities which is why we treat all of our people equally, without compromise. 

The academy is committed to safeguarding children and successful candidates will be required to provide evidence of an Enhanced DBS check and be registered on the update service.  If you do not have this, Leigh Academies Trust can complete a DBS check on your behalf for a fee.  Our commitment to safeguarding is underpinned by robust processes and checks which are in place across the Trust.
