If the answer is yes, please read on!

Our contacts within secondary schools may be able to help you!

We are currently running a very targeted programme to recruit and train an array of available individuals with varied backgrounds for daily callout requests to schools in the Derby City, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire areas who are prepared to work with pupils in a secondary education setting. The age ranges of these children are between 11 - 18 years old. There is a big focus on safeguarding in this line of work and it is key that candidates can communicate clearly, they present themselves smartly and they uphold a standard of professionalism at all times within the classrooms we place them into. Patience is a big factor when dealing with disruption in a classroom so if you are easily wound up or bugged by children and teenagers then this role is not for you.

We will recruit a selection of the finest individuals from our applications and get them booked in to come and train with our in house trainer here in Nottingham in February 2019. Protocol Education is an accredited CPD provider to the education sector.
