Date posted:
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Undisclosed
Contract term: Temporary
Suitable for NQTs: Yes


Vision for Education, the supply arm of TES, are seeking to appoint Outreach Tutors to join our successful supply teaching team and to work across various settings with young people on 1:1 basis in March and surrounding Cambridgeshire/Fenland areas.  This will begin initially on a day-to-day/short-term basis, with the potential of becoming a long-term or permanent role for the right Outreach Tutor. The role is to start from September 2018.

The desired Outreach Tutor will be teaching a variety of subjects up to GCSE Level, with a special emphasis on Maths, English and Science. You will be supported by outstanding and dedicated management teams, and be working alongside some excellent Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) practitioners. The successful candidate must have experience of teaching children and young people with behavioural difficulties and have the ability to teach stimulating lessons on a 1:1 basis with students. As an Outreach Tutor, you will not be involved in planning, but it will involve you teaching engaging lessons for the pupils you’re supporting and possibly a small element of marking. 

The duration of lessons can vary depending on the students you are supporting as an Outreach Tutor, but sessions are typically 2-3 hours long per day. This role will be divided between working in SEND Schools /Alternative Provisions and working with young people in the community (such as Community Centres and Libraries). This is a term-time only position without guaranteed hours on supply.

*It is essential that you are flexible and able to travel to and from settings in March and the surrounding areas (including Wisbech), if required for this role as an Outreach Tutor*.

The small Alternative Provision has an outstanding reputation for providing the best possible care and support to children with Social and Behavioural Difficulties (SEBD). The school prides itself in forging strong relationships with parents, raising the esteem and emotional development of all of its students and providing excellent enrichment opportunities for all.

To be considered for the position as an Outreach Tutor you must

· Have Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), an Instructor Tutor qualification like Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS) or be a qualified Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA)

· Have experience teaching children and young people, including children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

· Have a passion for teaching and possess the ability to plan and deliver inspiring and engaging lessons

· Be able to work on a 1:1 basis effectively with young people 

· Have a genuine desire to become part of committed team of childcare practitioners

At Vision for Education, we take our responsibilities to our practitioners seriously and our aim is to ensure you are well supported and rewarded for your efforts. As part of the Vision for Education team, and as an Outreach Tutor, you will receive:

· Excellent daily rates of pay, paid weekly through PAYE

· Support through your placements

· Unparalleled daily rates

· Access to a dedicated SEND Consultant 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

· Access to free specialist Continued Professional Development (CPD) opportunities such as Team Teach, Autism Awareness and Moving and Handling Qualifications, and 20+ eLearning Courses through EduCare 

· £50 reward every time you recommend a colleague

· Regular social events with 100% complimentary food and drink

You must be eligible to work in the UK and meet Vision for Education's stringent safeguarding checks for this position. We will also require you to hold a current DBS certificate (Child Workforce only) and it be registered on the Online Update Service. If your DBS is not registered online or you do not hold a DBS under Child Workforce, Vision will assist in your application.

If you are an Outreach Tutor who can enthuse, motivate and engage students, and would like the challenge of working in a demanding and rewarding environment, then we want to hear from you today.
