Education and Engagement Specialist - Durham, County Durham, United Kingdom,

Catch the children who slip through the net.

You've probably lost count of all the young people you've worked with who've either dropped out of education or have been excluded from school. 2020 has had devastating impacts on young people's education as well as their social and emotional wellbeing, so the number of children unable to cope with school is only going to increase.


It's heart-breaking, but life for these children is just one big tunnel with no light or hope at the end.


That's where Fresh Start in Education, and specifically YOU - come in.

  • Work across Durham in placements lasting 6 to 12 weeks
  • Sessions take place in relaxed environments from 2 to 5 days per week
  • Competitive hourly rates plus additional payment for planning & reporting

What's in it for you?

  • A bank of resources available to you to use or modify
  • Travel, food and resources are subsidised
  • CPD training offered and encouraged
