Becoming an ActiveRead Dyslexia Tutor | Diploma in Dyslexia Education.
All our elite ActiveRead tutors must complete our selective entry, Diploma in Dyslexia Education. A free, scholarship only course, for a chosen few that make The List.
Focused Education tutors do not apply for advertised jobs at Focused Education. Once a year our leadership team invite a small group of professionals to a weekend boot camp. This two-day event has one purpose. To find driven individuals possessing intellect, courage, and problem-solving skills.
Current ActiveRead Tutors run the boot camp weekend. These graduates are specially selected and highly trained teachers with a minimum of a Master of Education. Oh, we almost forgot… they need to be able to run a minimum of 5 km.
We don’t apologize for our complex, challenging education standards. Being a Dyslexia tutor at Focused Education is a well paid, rewarding career choice. It’s tough but fair. After our educational boot camp, we offer a completely free scholarship to those that we believe will be able to help children with Dyslexia in a professional, trustworthy and selfless manner. To serve, and serve again, without question or reward is the greatest honor for an ActiveRead Tutor.
Only 20% of invited Camp ActiveRead participants graduate from our elite ActiveRead Diploma in Dyslexia Education. Kids with Specific Learning Disorders and phonological impairments such as Dyslexia deserve the best possible tutoring support.
We headhunt the best people. Experienced teachers, former students of Active Read Tutors and sometimes university students find their way onto The List. Not by choice but by professional reputation. You may have been kind to someone with Dyslexia whilst studying a teaching qualification or impressed our leadership team when you taught a class we observed. On occasion, our collegiate network of school principals and Faculty University lecturers make recommendations.
Our selection criteria include:
- A high level of physical fitness.
- Socially and emotionally intelligent.
- You value a lifelong Dyslexia education career.
- You are a teacher or learning to be a teacher.
- You are a genuinely decent human being that is capable of greatness.
If you believe you can change the world for the better feel free to contact us via email or phone. We will probably tell you to call back in a few weeks. Just to test how interested you really are. Then perhaps, just perhaps you’ll make it onto The List, be invited to Camp ActiveRead and for a few lucky professionals, you’ll become an ActiveRead tutor.
We don’t think it’s a good idea for you to apply.
But… we know that the right people don’t need any encouragement do they?
