What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking to appoint an inspirational and dynamic colleague to join our team of committed and dedicated professionals who will do whatever it takes to help our young people achieve great things - beyond expectations. As an ACE Tutor you will be working with some of our most vulnerable learners and their families to offer personalised and bespoke support and guidance. You will work hard to understand their individuality and help resolve barriers to their achievement - making a real difference to our students and our community. Through regular and meaningful contact you will forge profitable and trusting relationships that inspire confidence and help bridge the gap between school and home. You will know each child you work with as an individual and over time learn what they need from us to help them achieve. It could be something as small as making sure they are equipped with all they need to come to school or working with other professionals to develop their ambition and resilience for a successful future. No two days will ever be the same - although they will always be rewarding and exciting.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a highly ambitious team of staff and make a real impact on our students’ lives.

Education can transform people’s lives and at Welling School I am absolutely determined that the students who attend our school will be given the very best opportunities to excel. Our new vision is to educate outward-looking learners who will thrive in their own lives and contribute to making the world a better place. This means that we firmly believe that the purpose of education is twofold. We want all our learners to achieve academic success and have access to a varied co-curricular syllabus in order for them to complete their educational journey. Students can only achieve this if they feel happy and are provided with a caring environment in which the talents of different individuals are respected and encouraged to flourish. Our educational philosophy is focused around the values we want all our students to acquire before taking their place in the adult world. This is why we strive for: Students who are ambitious Students who are kind Students who are active In summary, an education is so much more than just good examination results. We aim to support and inspire all our learners, irrespective of ability, to be the best they can be in every single way. Learners at Welling School also benefit from outstanding facilities. In 2005 the school was rebuilt and the school continues to make improvements. This summer the practical food rooms were renovated. Our other excellent facilities include: specialist classrooms; sports hall; all-weather sports pitch; dance studio, drama studios, Apple Mac computer rooms, recording studio, art gallery, library and a designated 6th Form Centre.
