Job summary

ACE Tutor- A Champion for Everyone

At Miltoncross Academy we are dedicated to ensuring that those students most in need are very well supported to succeed academically in school. It is our ambition that all of our disadvantaged students leave school with academic qualifications that match their more affluent peers and that their success is never hampered by any existing disadvantage. To do that, we are breaking the mould by developing our, A Champion for Everyone (ACE) programme. This programme allocates disadvantaged students with a dedicated in-school academic tutor whose role is to help their tutees overcome barriers to strong outcomes. This is done by meeting each tutee each week, setting goals, liaising with teachers, monitoring attendance and progress and liaising very closely with parents and families alongside any additional practical support such as providing equipment, referrals and checking homework.

This role is key to our strategy to raise disadvantaged students’ outcomes and the successful applicant will report directly to and work closely with our Senior ACE Tutor who has been piloting the programme. Full safeguarding and tutoring training will be given alongside clear line management and team meetings to ensure significant impact of your work is achieved. This is a really exciting opportunity to work 1-1 with students and make a real difference to young people’s lives. We intend to continue scaling up our ACE tutoring programme until 100% of disadvantaged students have an ACE Tutor.

Each tutor will need to be:

Well educated (desirable: degree level)

Morally driven



Well organised

Miltoncross is a school with a heart but it is also one that knows our students need good academic outcomes to aid success. We have very clear core values that we expect staff and students to exhibit daily. Work hard. Be kind. No excuses. If you wish to discuss the role further please contact summer.pryer@miltoncross-tkat.org.

We reserve the right to close the vacancy early should we receive a significant number of applications. If you have not had any communication within 10 days of the closing date please take this as confirmation that on this occasion your application has not been successful.
