We are expanding our team


We are currently expanding our team of Professional Associates and seeking suitably qualified, self-motivated Dyslexia Specialists to work on a self-employed or casual, part-time basis to help us meet the growing demand for our services.  We work with children and adults of all ages and of ability levels (basic skills to post-graduate), including workplace support and training.Man & woman having a discussion


Many of our services are delivered in the East Midlands, but increasingly we are being asked to provide them in other areas too.  Therefore, we would welcome applications from any part of the country but especially from the following areas:


  • Nottinghamshire
  • Derbyshire
  • Lincolnshire
  • Leicestershire
  • Northamptonshire
  • Bedfordshire
  • Yorkshire
  • Staffordshire
  • West Midlands
  • London


We would expect you to have a recognised qualification in specific learning difficulties (Level 5 / Level 7) and significant experience of assessment and / or tuition.  We also believe it essential that you are very computer literate.  Experience of some of the specialist software packages often recommended for people with specific learning difficulties is desirable.


If you share our aim and our professional commitment to providing high quality services, we would like to hear from you.  We are very flexible and happy to negotiate work and hours to suit.
