School Led Tutor

South Hunsley School and Sixth Form CollegeEast Riding of Yorkshire

Fixed Term Flexible Opportunity - Flexible hours paid at £30 per hour

School-Led Tutoring is being introduced across secondary schools as part of the National Tutoring Programme in 2021/22.  This programme allows us to create opportunities that in turn will have a positive impact on our students’ academic progress.  The programme is intended to help close the education gap which widened as a result of COVID-19. We know that disadvantaged and vulnerable pupils faced more barriers and tutors will deliver small group tuition, mainly to KS3 pupils in Maths, English and potentially phonics.  Tutors will deliver 15-hour blocks of tuition.  The tuition will take place during and after the school day.  

You will either have QTS or experience of teaching Maths or English for more than 2 years, or at least 2 or more years’ experience delivering primary school phonics.  For teachers with QTS, and teachers without QTS who have at least two years of experience teaching the subject and phase they wish to tutor in, training is optional. However, the Department recommends that these teachers complete the optional 2 hour QTS pathway.  For all other staff, including teaching assistants, trainee teachers and teachers without QTS who have less than two years’ experience in the relevant subject and phase, the School-Led Tutor Training Course mandatory and is expected to take 11 hours to complete (this time would be paid for by the school).

School-Led Tutors will: 

• Improve the life chances of our young people and help to bridge the education gap by providing quality and effective tutoring sessions to students. 

• Link the tutoring session to classroom teaching and the students’ specific needs 

• Provide high quality and individualised feedback to students to ensure there is sufficient progress 

• Regularly assess and monitor the students to ensure they are on track and identify areas of focus 

• Ensure resources are clear and support classroom-based learning. 

• Utilise strong interpersonal skills to coach, mentor, develop and motivate students to improve.

Ideally, you will have experience of working with SEND and or disadvantaged students, and will know how to plan and resource effective interventions to meet objectives and aid the student’s development.  Additionally, you will have experience of giving effective feedback to students about their work and learning.  Demonstrating emotional intelligence, empathy and flexibility when dealing with challenge, you will be a highly skilled communicator, with experience of and commitment to effective behaviour management, setting the highest standards and expectations.
