Assisting the student with their social and emotional development, including appropriate responses and building relationships

Five Education is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all of the staff we employ to share this commitment. Successful applicants will be required to undergo checks including reference checks, TRA checks, and will need to have a DBS; there will also be a face-to-face interview. Five Education does not believe in using umbrella bodies, we use PAYE, and how this isn't comparable with umbrella body pay and that there is no admin fee as with Umbrella bodies, and Five Education pays employers national insurance on top of the salary. Please note pay rate is for illustration and does include holiday pay.
We welcome and encourage job applications from people of all backgrounds. We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates as they are currently under-represented at this level
