Very experienced qualified teacher in Berkshire, able to teach English, Maths, functional skills and alternative curriculum

Methodology

I try to be as creative as I can with my lessons, I believe that everyone can learn, it is more about how that learning takes place. I avoid using textbooks and worksheets as much as possible and try to tailor my lessons to the learners interests

Experience

I am a qualified teacher, originally working in the mainstream middle school system who moved in special and alternative education 10 years ago, I specialise in working with excluded and vulnerable young people of all ages, helping them to achieve and be successful

Sarah's CV

Profile

I am a fully qualified teacher who is specialised in the area of Alternative Provision and extensive experience of working for a LA. I was the designated safeguarding lead for a number of years which included dealing with disclosures, training staff, making appropriate referrals, supporting staff in all areas of safeguarding, advising external colleagues, maintaining records, policy development and implementation, multi-agency working and being part of CIN meetings/CP conferences. I have experience of line managing teams of staff including teachers, teaching assistants, EWE co-ordinators and administrators. Most recently I have sourced, co-ordinated and managed alternative provision for statutory age young people who have been or at risk of exclusion. I was also responsible for the Elective Home Education monitoring (including visits for high risk families and the oversight of those carrying out the visits) and organisation of Home Tuition.
