Job description

Equal Education is a nationwide Social Enterprise who are passionate about improving education outcomes for some of society's most vulnerable children; those who are looked after and those with SEND.

Did you know only 12% of looked after children achieve 5 A*-C (4-9) grade GCSEs compared to an average of around 60%? This figure drops down to 3% for those in residential care. Furthermore, despite looked after children making up less than 0.1% of the UK population, they represent 40% of children in custody, and 25% of the adult prison population are care leavers.

We are looking for motivated and conscientious educators who believe in the transformative power of education to broaden vulnerable young people’s aspirations, and empower them to pursue ambitious goals in their lives. We are looking for educators who want to make a significant difference with their skills and experience.

About the role

We are recruiting educators with a teaching qualification for a flexible freelance role. As the freelance tutor you will have the option of working with students during the day for those who are not currently in education, and after school supporting those in educational settings. This 1:1 work usually takes place in the home (with a parent/carer present), but may also be delivered at school or in the community. We work with our tutors, families and schools to ensure the best for all involved.

Our students are aged 5-18 (key stage 1 to 5), and tuition placements are available throughout England (and some in Wales).

Skills and Experience

  • A recognised teaching qualification (e.g. QTS. QTLS, PGCE, PTTLS, DTTLS, HLTA)

  • Experience and understanding of SEND

  • Understanding and appreciation of working with the care system, and a passion to increase social mobility for the most marginalised

  • Ability to teach English, Maths or Science at any level from KS1 to KS5l. We can receive requests for other subjects

  • Competent administrative capabilities

  • Excellent written communication and reporting

  • Excellent timekeeping and reliability

About Equal Education

We feel we can empower children who are looked after and those with SEND through education and wish to tackle this social inequality at a grassroots level. Since working with a handful of children back in North London in 2012, we now support hundreds across the country.

You can read about an economic evaluation and the positive impact our intervention can make on the public purse on CYP Now

  • Thurrock

  • Slough

  • West Midlands

  • Devon
