All of our teachers are interviewed by students before joining the community.
Our teachers are all qualified with years of experience. They can teach their subjects up to 16 years old (GCSEs mostly). They are creative thinkers who are looking for a more student-centred way of working with young people. Coercive learning is an anathema to them. They seek to inspire children through their classes to enjoy learning, so creative planning is a must. Listening deeply is a priority to help young people feel understood whether in the class room or as a mentor.
Our teachers understand that they must be learners themselves if they wish to inspire others, and our teachers need to embody the values we wish the students to learn. That’s why mindfulness and self-developmental CPD are key to our approach.
