TalentEd believes every young person deserves the support they need to flourish, regardless of background. We specialise in delivering high-quality tuition to disadvantaged young people. Our tutors are all qualified and experienced teachers, because they deliver the best learning for young people.
We are on an exciting growth journey. Since 2019 we have doubled the number of students we work with year-on-year for two years in a row, to over 1,000 students in 2020-21. We were selected as one of only 33 organisations nationwide to deliver the government’s flagship National Tutoring Programme (NTP), and we recently launched a new programme – the Maths Masterclass Tutorials.
The outlook is bright. We expect our Schools Programme to scale up significantly next year. We recently appointed former Chair of the Education Select Committee Neil Carmichael as Chair of our Board. We have a high-performing central team and are growing our pool of exceptional tutors.
About the role
Your primary responsibility will be to manage a number of our school programmes, which involves engaging with teachers and parents, recruiting and allocating tutors, and ensuring the programme is as smooth and impactful as possible. Other responsibilities may include supporting on fundraising, finance, and staff recruitment.
