KLS' Love to Learn team provides educational services and support for refugee young refugees, living in poverty, in Wandsworth. The team needs experienced managers responsible for strategic direction, management and ensuring the very best outcomes for refugee young people.
The refugee young people we work with are substantially behind at every educational Key Stage, which can result in low attainment levels, challenging behaviour, risk of exclusion and restricted opportunities in life/employment. Covid restrictions have made life even more difficult for our young people because of interrupted schooling; lack of digital; dealing with traumatic experiences; lack of home learning support; low confidence; Special Education Needs not being addressed; and more.
Since 2004 KLS' Love to Learn team has provided a range of educational services for refugee young people including volunteer learning mentors, homework clubs, GCSE study groups, casework and advice. 10 p/t staff & 100+ volunteers work hard to broaden educational experiences, improve educational outcomes and experiences, and support aspirations of refugee young people in Wandsworth. The team needs strong leadership to increase the impact and deepen the scope and quality of the support we offer.
