Responsibilities of the Role

     The ThinkForward programme at Bethnal Green Academy aims to work with students between Year 10 and Year 13 who are at risk
     of becoming NEETS (not in employment, education, or training). The goal is to ensure the student carries on in education or
     employment after school. ThinkForward is looking to recruit QM Project Leaders to tutor these students on a one on one basis in
     maths, English or science. Tutors will:

              Be able to patiently and clearly explain their subject matter to students one-on-one. Some of the students struggle
               academically and are very behind in their learning.
              Deliver small group workshops to the students on study skills, positive behaviour and staying safe. Training on workshop
               delivery and subject matter will be provided.

The ideal candidates will be kind, patient, supportive and consistent. This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in a career in
teaching, youth work and/or school psychology.

Tutoring would take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 1:20-2:05pm and 3:05-4:05pm.
