About Digital Home School Support Programme 

Purpose of role

Many families have been thrown into the unknown world of home schooling – made even more challenging when your own education isn’t up to scratch or English is your second language. We are rolling out a free programme of home school support to those who are being most negatively impacted by being out of school – ensuring they don’t fall too far behind their peers when returning back to school.

The aim is to support children who may be falling behind with their studies as a result of Covid_19, mitigating as far as possible the widening attainment gap.

Duties will vary dependent on your skills/ availability but may include:

  • Planning sessions in line with relevant Key stage curriculum (KS2 & KS3)
  • Delivering engaging group sessions online on a weekly basis 
  • Delivering 1-2-1 support sessions on a weekly basis (DBS required for these sessions)

You need to be:

  • A qualified teacher (QTS)
  • Knowledgeable in your subject field
  • Engaging
  • Reliable
  • Passionate about social change and making a difference
  • DBS checked (if facilitating 1-2-1 support sessions)

Notes: This programme will evolve in line with social distancing rules and may adapt to being an additional home-work club to support children in “catching up” upon their return to school.
