Post: English Tutor (Graduate Level)

Post Details: Full Time – Fixed Term Contract until 31.08.22

Salary Scale: £18 per hour, 5 hours a day during term time. Additional hours to be agreed during school holidays up to a maximum of £19,000 per annum.

Ambitions Academies Trust (AAT) comprises schools from all sectors: mainstream (primary and secondary) and special. AAT secures outstanding achievement and improved life chances of all our pupils. All our Academies have high expectations as the focus of their work. We are strongly committed to supporting colleagues in developing their careers further and offer excellent CPD opportunities.

We currently have the following vacancy at Oak Academy, Duck Lane, BH11 9JJ.

Oak Academy is looking to recruit a recent graduate in English to provide dedicated catch-up tuition to students on either a one-to-one basis, or in small groups. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain experience in the education sector and improve the life chances of young people.

We’re recruiting a talented graduate to support students’ recovery with both reading and more generalised literacy. You will have a direct impact on the life chances of our students – helping them to improve their skills and achieve key qualifications that open doors for future study and work.

Without GCSEs in this core subject, young people are more likely to drop out of education and are locked out of many university courses, apprenticeships, and key professions for life. In the fallout of the public health crisis, now more than ever, young people who miss out on these crucial qualifications need extra support to get their education back on track.

Having a tutor to provide tailored support and rebuild their confidence can help students close gaps in their education. One-to-one, or small group tuition is often out of reach for many young people, however these Graduate Tutor roles mean that we can provide all students with the opportunity to succeed.

Our graduate will work both during term time and during some school holidays

  • The academy will work with you to ensure you have all the resources needed for delivering the programme to your students.
