Tutoring will be in highest demand during school term dates. However, there may be some schools who request tutoring sessions during school holidays. You will have the choice to accept or reject tutoring sessions to fit with your availability. The role will last at least for the academic year 2020-21.
We will provide you with resources we recommend you use to deliver each tutoring session, and you will be responsible for familiarising yourself with these materials before each session. This will allow for a level of consistent, high quality provision across our tutoring offer.
However, we will also encourage you to use your professional judgement where necessary to cater for the needs of each student within the framework of these resources.
Tutoring will take place in blocks of 15 sessions. Our plan is that, prior to starting each block, you would meet with the students’ teacher to discuss the required focus of the tutoring, any specific needs the students may have and how you might be able to support these as their tutor.
Ongoing communication of this type between the tutor and teacher will be highly beneficial to learning outcomes.
We are aiming to notify applicants of an interview within 2 weeks. Following the interview, we are required to do specific reference and safeguarding checks which can take up to 4 weeks. Once these checks have been passed, you will be added to the platform as a prospective tutor within 1 week.
