Hospital teacher

A hospital teacher teaches children and young people on the wards, and in the hospital school.

Children - People Teacher
Most hospital teachers have worked in ordinary schools. Hospital teachers help patients carry on with their education.

A hospital teacher will:

  • Keep in touch with the patient's school. With the child's say-so they let the school know what's happening.
  • Have work from school sent home or to the hospital.
  • Help with schoolwork while the patient is in hospital. This is most likely to be work from school. But there is also plenty of other work in the hospital anyway!
  • Help to set up home tuition.
  • Sort out extra time for a patient in exams.
