Tutors and Therapeutic Tutors for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Posted 19 January by Asend Limited
Featured Ended

We are looking for inspirational tutors in East London to support children and young people with SEND. After the lockdown earlier this year and with schools reopened with the uncertainty of remaining open, many children with SEND are now disengaged with their learning and may not able to attend schools, even if they have a place. We tutor children face to face in a range of settings including homes, schools and community centres. You may be an experienced tutor or teacher or have experience of working with children in a therapeutic way. One of your aims will be to support and re-engage a pupil in their learning and continue their educational development as schools begin to open their doors again.

Our pupils have a range of individual needs and abilities, and we work very hard to match the tutor with the child who can most benefit from their skills and expertise. Some of our pupils who have deep-seated anxiety or mental health issues linked to their special needs work very well with tutors that are qualified Play, Art, Drama, Performance, Music or Dance and Movement therapists. Some of our tutors specialise in SEN with a focus on certain academic subjects and others work with specific behaviours related to SEN.

Tuition is part-time, and takes place during school hours, five days a week.

The successful candidates will:

  • have experience with SEN; many of our student require someone with experience in working with people who have Autism, ADHD or Emotional and Mental Health difficulties
  • be passionate about helping pupils overcome any barriers to learning and difficulties with engagement
  • be able to build a rapport and strong relationship with children and their families, and with colleagues
  • ideally, have some experience of helping children with their learning
  • have the ability to motivate and inspire pupils
  • use a person-centred approach in their work
  • make the wellbeing, achievement and progress of your pupils central to everything that they plan and do
  • have the determination and energy to bring about continuous improvement in mental health and confidence.

At ASEND you will always be well supported by our highly qualified and experienced team and well-remunerated for your work.

If you are seeking a truly rewarding position and are passionate about enriching the lives of young people, then do not hesitate to apply now and one of our specialist team will review your application.
