SEN & LAC Teachers

Contract type: Part Time and Flexible

Salary: Starting from £25 p/hour

Contract term: Fixed Term

Equal Education is a nationwide Social Enterprise who are passionate about improving education outcomes for some of society's most vulnerable children; those who are looked after and those with SEND.

Did you know only 12% of looked after children achieve 5 A*-C grade GCSEs compared to an average of around 60%? This figure drops down to 3% for those in residential care. Furthermore, despite looked after children making up less than 0.1% of the UK population, they represent 40% of children in custody, and 25% of the adult prison population are care leavers.

We are looking for motivated and conscientious educators who believe in the transformative power of education to broaden vulnerable young people’s aspirations, and empower them to pursue ambitious goals in their lives. We are looking for teachers who want to make a significant difference with their skills and experience.

About the role 

We are recruiting qualified teachers for a flexible freelance role. As the freelance teacher you will have the option of working with students during the day for those who are not currently in education, and after school supporting those in education settings. This 1:1 work usually takes place in the home (with a parent/carer present), but may also be delivered at school or in the community. We work with our teachers, families and schools to ensure the best for all involved.

Our students are aged 7-18 (key stage 2 to A levels), and tuition placements are available throughout England, with some exception in Wales.

Skills and Experience

Ability to teach English, Maths or Science at any level up to A2 level. We can receive requests for other subjects (predominantly in Greater London and the West Midlands)

Competent administrative capabilities

Excellent written communication and reporting
