An ELAN School Led Tutor is positive, a team player, motivational, flexible, creative, and innovative with a supportive nature, as well as being confident, calm, consistent and resourceful with experience supporting pupils.

You will work closely with class teachers to resource and adapt planning and support high quality teaching and learning across English and Maths. You will help to create learning environments where pupils can expand their knowledge. You will work with the school community to uphold our trust and school values.

You need to be proactive, energetic, and committed to engaging pupils, developing their desire to learn. You will help to inspire them to be confident and independent. You will also need to be calm, patient and sensitive.

Your main responsibility in this role will be delivering interventions to:

• Small group work

• One-to-one support for those with additional barriers to learning.

To support this, you will also be expected to:

• identify learning gaps and helping to shape a bespoke intervention programme for pupils

• deliver engaging sessions, to support a range of learning styles with clear learning objectives

• adapt sessions in line with pupils ability, taking into account any barriers to learning or additional needs

• Demonstrate safeguarding standards in all practice.

The post is for a School Led Tutor not an Academic Tutor the training for a school le tutor is as follows:


A free online training course focusing on best practice tutoring will be offered to all school staff who are nominated as tutors by their school leaders. Ed Dev Trust has designed the training, which is an evidence based, self-directed and accessible course focusing on best practice tutoring. This training will be offered to all school staff who are nominated as tutors by their school leaders.

There will be two pathways to this training:

• QTS Pathway;

• Non-QTS Primary Pathway

Participants will have up to four weeks, from when they begin, to complete the virtual, self-directed training and assessment regardless of which pathway they are enrolled on. However, they may complete training sooner if they wish. Upon successful completion of the online course, tutors will receive certification which will be recognised by the Chartered College of Teaching to certify individuals as a School-Led Tutor.

For teachers with QTS, and teachers without QTS who have at least two years of experience teaching the subject and phase they wish to tutor in, training is optional. However, the Department recommends that these teachers complete the optional 2 hour QTS pathway.

For all other staff, including teaching assistants, trainee teachers and teachers without QTS who have less than two years’ experience in the relevant subject and phase, the training is mandatory. These staff will not be able to begin delivering tuition until they have successfully completed the School-Led Tutor Training Course. This is expected to take approximately 11 hours to complete.
