TLG Reading is a working partnership between TLG and The Gate, a church-based education centre offering a safe and nurturing place for young people to learn. We are now looking for an experienced teacher with leadership potential and a passion to support young people experiencing educational crisis.
At TLG Reading, young people are valued, cared for and their potential is championed. We’re passionate about seeing young people return to mainstream school, progress on to college or find work because of the support we provide. Your role as a teacher will play an integral part in enabling young people to get their lives back on track, through delivering innovative programmes, and working with the Centre Manager to ensure that the Education Centre achieves success.
The role involves assistance with the planning and delivery of lessons, leading sessions as timetabled and providing one-to-one support as appropriate to bring excellence to the young people’s learning experience. You will also act as a link between TLG’s students, their families and the church community.
This position is ideal for the right candidate looking to grow and develop into the role of a Centre Manager. Taking on leadership of key systems and processes to ensure the smooth running of the Centre will be encouraged from the outset.
TLG is a Christian charity and as a team, we want to bring our Christian faith to the work we do. As such, we are looking to recruit an individual with a strong and vibrant Christian faith. TLG is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff including volunteers to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be required to undertake a DBS check.
We would welcome applications from candidates from diverse backgrounds to enable us to reflect the needs of the communities we serve.
The deadline for applications is 5pm, Monday 18th October. If a suitable candidate applies prior to the closing date, we may decide to interview and appoint earlier at an earlier date. The date of interviews is to be confirmed.
