About the role
The LA has a duty to ensure all pupils with medical needs who are unable to access education at school are receiving an education. As a Tutor with Access to Education you will be working directly with these pupils, supported by the team and liaising with schools, to ensure they are provided with an education that enables them to either re-integrate back to school or to move on to post 16 provision. We work with all phases, but the majority of the children who access the provision are Key Stage 3 or 4.
As part of your application, you will need to complete your education and work history and upload a supporting statement. Your supporting statement is the most important part of your application as it will be used in the shortlisting process to assess whether you meet the essential requirements for the role that are set out in the person specification and to decide whether you should be offered an interview. Before you start your application, please read our guidance here (Supporting statement guidance (brighton-hove.gov.uk)) as this gives important advice which will increase your chance of success in the shortlisting process.
Work Permits: This role does not meet the requirement for UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) Points-based Immigration System. Successful candidates will need to evidence that they have the Right to Work in the UK.
