An exciting opportunity has arisen for a passionate and inspirational teacher to join the successful Hospital and Home Education Service. We provide educational support for children and young people with medical and/or mental health needs which prevent them from attending school full time.

Teachers for the Hospital and Home Education Service work with young people (KS1-4) from Swindon across the whole ability range.  

We are excited to be recruiting part-time one-to-one tutors.  The post holder will involve working mainly as part of our team of Outreach teachers and may also be required to work in the Adolescent Unit or Great Western Hospital school room, depending on pupil need. 

Staff employ a broad range of skills and engagement techniques to help children and young people recognise and celebrate their strengths, overcome their difficulties, cope with their medical/mental health condition and re-engage with life-long learning.

One-to-one teaching takes place either at home, school, the hospital, or in the local community e.g. a local library. Teachers deliver a learning programme which is planned with the pupil’s home school and the key academic focus on English, Maths and Science.  

This is an exciting opportunity for teachers who have excellent skills from either a mainstream or special provision background, and who are passionate about teaching and learning for young people who have medical needs. We are seeking a teacher with:

• Recent experience of teaching English, Maths or Science to GCSE level and the ability to offer at least one other core subject to GCSE level.

• Recent experience of teaching KS1 or KS2.

• Is resilient, supportive and sensitive towards the needs of vulnerable pupils.

Full support and appropriate training is available to help the successful candidate settle into the school structure.
