  • Willingness and ability to adapt to a wide range of duties in response to changing circumstances.
  • The ability to monitor a pupil's response to learning activities and modify or adapt the activities to achieve the intended learning outcomes.
  • The confidence to self-evaluate learning needs and actively seek new teaching methods.
  • The ability to provide constructive feedback to pupils in a way that reinforces self-esteem.
  • The ability to handle complex and sensitive issues with empathy and understanding.

  • An interest in continuing your personal and professional development.

This is an excellent opportunity to support the pupils in a variety of different secondary schools.
