"At Gain Focus, we have three fundamental goals when working with Young People... Educate, Inspire & Achieve."

We have put together a unique project for young people who are at risk of becoming, or already Currently Missing Education (CME). Now we are liaising with One to One Tutors to help us make a difference...

Nice to meet you {{answer_35871237}}.

 
Briefly, what your role would entail...

If successful in your application, you would become part of our forward thinking and outcome orientated Gain Focus Tutor team. Within this role you'll be responsible for building consistent, professional and positive relationships with 11-16-year-olds who are Currently Missing Education (CME).

Working on a one to one basis, you would then utilise these positive relationships with your learner, to help improve their educational attainment and achieve their potential.

"Everyone is a genius, but if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will spend its life believing it is stupid"
Albert Einstein

We agree with Albert! That's why our programs are constructed specifically around the young person. Our Gain Focus mentors remove 'trees' to support students to access their potential...

Do you have a background in Education or Youth Work that we could gain references for? *

How would you rate your track record of inspiring your previous/current mentees to engage and achieve? *
