Tutors required on a self employed or school employed casual basis

The school runs a successful after-hours sports programme and is looking to broaden its extended school offer to include a daytime option for families over holiday periods.

We want to develop a bank of tutors who can offer one or possibly more of the following activities for youngsters between the ages of 8 – 12 years.

In addition to a multi-sport offer which would include Football, Rugby, Cricket, Hockey, Tennis and Basketball we want to offer non-sporting options to include Arts and Craft, Drama, Dance, Music, Pizza / Bread making, Outdoor Learning and Languages.

If you can offer any of the above we would love to hear from you.

If you can’t offer any of the above but have a skillset that could be attractive to our target audience (8 – 12 years), we would be delighted to hear from you.

Our project coordinator, Geoff Davis (01752 208787 x 228 during normal workings hours) will be pleased to talk to you about our plans in more detail.

If you are interested then please complete and submit the Tutor Registration Form (link below) which will capture all relevant details by Friday 28 February 2020.
