  • Behavioural difficulties (pupils excluded from school and awaiting a new placement)
  • Emotional needs including school phobia or anxiety
  • Medical needs

  • Improvement in grades
  • Support with GCSE preparation
  • Successful applicants will need:

  • Qualified Teacher with QTS or equivalent; ideally withing a core specialism (English, Maths or Primary)
  • Experience with primary or secondary aged children
  • Experience working with children in a tuition capacity (desirable)
  • What you'll get in return:
