Job Description

The Carline Learning Centre provides formal education; training and social support to young people aged between 13 and 17, male and female who are unable to manage mainstream schooling. Carline acts as a safe harbour to the young people enabling them to develop the confidence, self-esteem and coping skills whilst building up an educational portfolio. We currently have vacancies for two tutors to be filled immediately, at our centre in Lucan, Co. Dublin. About the role
Given the experiences of the young people who attend our centre, the successful candidates must be highly motivated to work with them in a creative and innovative manner. Success is measured not exclusively by educational achievement but rather by the number of young people able to return to mainstream school or other training services. Each tutor is supported by a Social Care Worker assigned to their classroom.

The post is 21 hours per week and the school year runs from September to May. Eighteen direct teaching hours are provided to the young people up to Junior Certificate level. Administration time is limited and, like tutors in a mainstream setting, preparation work is done outside of teaching hours. The successful tutors will attend a 30 minute weekly team meeting to discuss matters relating to young people in their class.

Desirable Skills

Applications are open to primary and post primary qualified teachers who are registered with the teaching council. Teaching experience in a similar setting would be desirable. Experience of working with young peoplechildren with behavioural or learning support needs would be an advantage

Application Requirements

Letter of Application
Curriculum Vitae
Copy of Certificates, Diplomas or Degree

Further Notes

We are looking for two tutors to be the following:
• Energetic, patient and very understanding
• Excellent team player: the successful candidates must be capable of working in a multi-disciplinary team with Social Care worker, the Centre Counsellor, parents, external agencies supported by the Centre Manager
• Flexible and adaptable: Carline strives to provide the Junior Certificate but the tutor we are looking for must be adaptable and, taking an holistic approach, strike the correct balance between the curriculum and the needs of each individual.
• Nurturing, supportive and understanding of the needs of the young people who attend the Centre
• A sense of fun is welcome too!
