“A flexible and rewarding opportunity to help shape the lives of our most vulnerable young people.”
Contract: Bank/Flexible Tutors
Salary: Dependant on experience and qualifications
Location: Flexible (Dependant on pupil requirements)
The Complete Education Solution (TCES)
TCES is a family-owned group of Good and Outstanding schools and services for pupils aged 7 to 19 with an Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC) and/or Social Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs. The majority of our places are funded by Local Authorities. We are committed to achieving the best outcome for each pupil and their family through access to outstanding education and family support.
We provide a sector-leading therapeutic education and pupil leadership curriculum across our two day schools (Newham and East Acton), rated by Ofsted as Good and Outstanding respectively, as well as Create Service, which works with more complex students who need intensive support as part of our ‘step down’ model. In 2020 we launched TCES Home Learning to provide a full curriculum for children who are unable to physically attend school for a variety of reasons, including severe anxiety and school phobia.
On joining us, pupils will have already – on average – experienced three permanent exclusions, been out of full-time education for up to 18 months and are recognised to be substantially at risk of being unemployed, developing severe mental health problems and involvement with the criminal justice system later in life. Between three and five years after leaving a TCES school or service, ninety per cent of our students are in education, training or employment, going on to study at college and university and pursuing careers in social care, retail and theatre amongst others.
Our authentic commitment to inclusion means that in our 20-year history working with over 3,000 children and young people we have never permanently excluded a single child. Since 2019 our fixed term exclusions have also been reduced to zero.
