Job profile for a Teacher

The main focus of my current employment has been to set up as an Independent School. The first part of this was to engage the students in a formal learning process, which had been absent within the current situation for 2 years and even further in some instances if mainstream exclusions are taken into consideration. Once this was completed the whole administrative process that is necessary for Independent Status (Schemes of Work, Curriculum Plans, Whole School Polices etc) was completed, and this year for the first time in the company?s history, the Young People will sit the formal qualifications, obtain the certification that they richly deserve, and either gain a place in further education or move into employment that they have worked so hard to ensure.

Teach in teacher's absence, assist teacher, assist child/children to the bathroom, keep a log book, assist in cleaning the classroom and surrounding areas, ensure that the furnitures in the class is not damage or grafieted by students, replace books if stolen by student, ensure that each student is fed if child is unable to help him/herself, etc. and many more.
