The Role

We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced and nurturing Functional Skills Maths Tutor to work in our Barnsley project to support young people to thrive both inside and outside of the classroom.

You will be required to teach 8 x 60 min Maths lessons per week and deliver 1-1 sessions to learners who are unable to take part in a group session, (this could be in the classroom or outside of the classroom at the learner’s accommodation). The rest of your time will be spent assisting in other subject lessons, supporting our learners on enrichment activities, contributing to SEN/D paperwork or barrier busting. You will be delivering to class sizes of between 5-10 learners, but learners will also have support from other staff members during these sessions. You will collect students on your commute to work and take them home at the end of the day.

Are you currently working in education and looking for a new challenge? Are you passionate about making a difference to the lives of young people with SEN/D? Do you want a job where you will experience genuine job satisfaction?

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced and driven SEN/D practitioner to work in our Barnsley project to support young people to thrive both inside and outside of the classroom.

The Really NEET Project is a Post 16 Training Provider that works with 16-24 year old’s with SEN/D who are currently NEET or at risk of being NEET (not in education, employment or training). Our approach is very much person-centred and based around meeting the needs of the learners. Students are taught either one-to-one or in small groups (never more than 10 students, though typically around 5), so being able to build relationships is at the heart of what we do.

If you want to work somewhere that values both its staff and students, then Really NEET would welcome your application.

The post holder may be required from time to time to undertake other duties within the school as may be reasonably expected, without changing the general character of the duties or the level of responsibility entailed. This is a common occurrence and would not justify a reconsideration of salary.

The priorities for each year will be reviewed against this job description annually through performance management meetings and appraisals.

Please note that we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our pupils and expect all those who work with us to share this commitment. Successful applicants will need to undertake a DBS Enhanced Clearance check (Disclosure and Barring Service).
