If you enjoy teaching individuals within ultra-small groups, you are comfortable being a “real person” before you are a teacher, and you don’t have to hide behind institutional rules to get the best out of students, this is the most rewarding teaching role you may ever have!

As a Centre Science Teacher, you will be confident to deliver the core curriculum (KS3 and KS4) to our students in either 1:1 or small group setting.

Many Red Balloon colleagues describe our work as the purest form of teaching they have experienced. This is because of the flexibility to start with the interests of the young person through our “negotiated curriculum”.

We are proud to be a niche provider and celebrate the flexibility this brings to our practice. Our teachers, though specialists, enjoy cross-curricular education and use every opportunity to develop a student’s love of learning.

Some key responsibilities of this role include:

  • Help design and implement a learning programme through negotiation with each individual student both in KS3 and to GCSE;
  • Support other staff who may be teaching these subjects.
  • Organise small-group learning where appropriate;
  • Set up and maintain records of academic and social achievement for each student;
  • Advise and consult with the Head of Centre or other named person regularly;
  • Actively participate in in-service training


To be considered for this role as a minimum you will need:

  • Qualified or experienced teacher
  • Degree level or NVQ level 4 education
  • Have experience working with vulnerable children
