Tradewind Recruitment are currently recruiting for a full time creative and fun Functional Skills Tutor who can inspire those who have had a little to no education or a shaky start in life to see value in learning. We are looking for the kind of Functional Skills Tutor that can recognise when challenging behaviour is down to lack of understanding and low self-esteem and are able to reach out to those learners and build them back up. We need a Functional Skills Tutor that gets excited by writing schemes of work that engage students across all walks of life and abilities getting them actively involved in learning.

The Academy is a Pupil Referral Unit for pupils in Years 10 and 11 and pupils come to us via a referral process, either from their previous school or directly from the Local Authority. The Academy was graded as a Good school by Ofsted on their last inspection and aspires to be an inspirational Centre of Excellence, where even the most troubled young people can re-engage with learning, and develop the skills and attitude to life that will enable them to fulfil their potential and contribute to society.
