Temp contract (Former Employee) – London, ENG – 10 April 2015
This role was eye opening in terms of the mission of the organisation to end educational disadvantage for children from lower socio-economic backgrounds through exceptional teaching. The guiding principles of social justice underpin all elements of work in this organisation are wonderful The staff are all passionate about their work and committed to these principles; many have been teachers and therefore bring a unique perspective to their work having been on the 'frontines' as it were.
A significant aspect of my role involved the proof-reading of potential teacher CVs and allocation of these participants into areas across London based upon their preferences and organisational needs.
Nice, supportive team.
No prospect for ongoing employment from temporary contract.

The job can be difficult in being able to fully provide the correct support towards others immediately without making any mistakes, although it is the mot enjoybale experience once a task that may appear to large is completed within a day.
