Preparation for transition Course Tutor; College Site Y11-13 Fixed one year contract

Woodlands Meed are looking to recruit a qualified or unqualified teacher to be course tutor and lead a bespoke one year College Preparation course.

Since experiencing the second lockdown, we have become even more acutely aware that pupils who transitioned to the college in September 2019 have missed a lot of time in school and missed opportunities to prepare themselves for transition to further education.

We have therefore decided to add an additional class for the year 2021 2022. This will be a one-year bespoke transition course that will involve visits to colleges and link courses, independence training, work experience and general preparation for adulthood, as well as qualifications in Maths and English and vocational subjects.

The course will cater for a number of Year 11 pupils plus some existing pupils from Years 12 and 13 with the aim of equipping them with the skills to prepare for adulthood.
