Education Tutor

  • Full time

  • Advertised from 3rd June 2021
  • 37.5 hours per week - Monday to Friday. Permanent


Teens+ provides post school education and lifelong learning services for young people with complex communication needs including autism and learning disabilities. Based in two centres in Edinburgh (Liberton Brae and Ravenscroft), the service is person centred and individualised to ensure each student, regardless of needs, can reach their fullest potential.

We have an exciting opportunity for an Education Tutor to join our Multi-Disciplinary Team in TEENS+.

You will work closely with the other Education Tutors, Speech & Language Therapist, Team Leaders and Project Workers to develop Individual Learning Plans for our students, monitor their progress and manage outcomes. You will also be working closely with the students we support, their families and other external agencies, as well as supporting and coaching Project Workers to deliver education programmes to the students.

You will have previous experience in working with adults with additional supporting needs. Background in education is an advantage but not essential. For us, it’s not so much about what you know, but your attitude and values that are most important. We will provide full training on what you need to know, but you must be able to live our values:

  • Person centred – building positive relationships that recognise and celebrate the individual
  • Respect – respect and value differences
  • Humour – we want to see happy people, hear laughter and have fun
  • Compassion – we strive to create a caring and empathetic environment
  • Professional – passion and integrity are vital
  • Resilient – flexibility, confidence and creativity to turn challenges into opportunities.

One other important thing you need to know. The successful applicant must become a member of the PVG (Protection of Vulnerable Groups) Scheme. We will help complete this process, but you must be able to pass the required checks.
