New Young Carers Schools Project looking for Tutors

1st July 2019

Early in 2019 PKAVS were commissioned to develop a service for Young Carers who require extra educational support to help with achievement and engagement within schools. The EASyc (Education Attainment Service for young carers) looks to develop person-centred support for those Young Carers referred in. The service is open to all Young Carers 5-18 years old who are currently enrolled in school that meet the criteria.

We are looking to gather a highly motivated bank of Tutors in all areas of the Curriculum to work on a 1-1 basis with young people for a time-limited period. Sessions may take place within our one of our PKAVS centres, schools or a mutually convenient establishment. As we support Young Carers all over Perth and Kinross, there is an option to set up online 1-1 sessions for those living within rural localities.

In addition to having relevant qualifications and a PVG we are looking for individuals that are

  • Enthusiastic - Able to engage with young People
  • Empathetic - Understand the needs of Young Carers
  • Flexible - Able to develop person-centred approaches to learning
  • Fun - For many Young Carers learning can be respite from their caring role

Sessions are paid at £25 per hour.
