Are you interested in a career in education? Or are you taking a gap year and want quality experience or a returning professional or just want to make a positive difference to the lives of young people? We have the opportunity for you……

The Elizabethan Academy are seeking to recruit enthusiastic and knowledgeable Academic Tutors in our core curriculum areas of English, Maths and Science with the primary purpose of supporting our disadvantaged students. The successful candidates will undertake specialist small group or one to one work with students requiring additional support.

We require confident people who can relate well to students and are committed to supporting teaching and learning. Previous classroom experience is preferred but not essential. This post could suit a range of applicants from graduates considering moving on to their PGCE, students on gap years, a former teacher considering a return to the profession or a TA / HLTA. This is a rewarding opportunity to not only make a difference to young people’s lives but differentiate yourself from other candidates in the future in what will be a very competitive employment market.

There are many opportunities available in relation to this post, we have established and bespoke CPD routes available and will always support staff into leadership where this is of interest. You may have some of your own classes if this is of interest. You could also lead an activity on our extra-curricular or enrichment programme as well as attending school trips. You will be part of a faculty team based on your specialist subject.

The successful candidate will have:

  • Excellent literacy and numeracy skills.
  • Sound knowledge of English, Maths or Science (or a combination).
  • Motivation and flexibility to work across departments and have a real passion for working with young adults at secondary school age.
  • Behaviour Management skills.
  • A strong initiative.
  • Effective organisation and communication skills.
  • Will have good communication skills with the ability to work on your own initiative, but also be able to work flexibly as part of a team.
  • The ability to act as a positive role model and set high standards.

We are able to offer staff a supportive environment with continuous professional development and excellent facilities. If you have the vision and drive for excellence and want to join an independent academy where relationships for learning are fundamental to our continued success we would be delighted to hear from you.

The Academy is committed to equality of experience for all staff and students.  We operate safer recruitment, robust child protection procedures and require evidence of DBS clearance for all employees. Checks will also be made with previous employers. 

Please apply by sending your completed application and cover letter to HR Manager, Helen Upson by post or email at You can contact Helen with any queries or for application assistance by email or on the telephone - 01777 713705.
