It is a really exciting time in the academy’s development as we look to expand our provision, enhance the curriculum offer and build a reputation as the alternative provider of choice in the county. We have made some really exciting appointments in the last year at a time where recruitment presents it challenges and we are now looking to offer a full -time permanent contract for a teacher to join our academy.

We are looking to recruit an experienced and organised individual to join our academy to assist with site management. Pupils at this site will be in KS3 and KS4. The staffing teams are small compared to mainstream schools and the post will suit someone who can work in a fast- paced environment with vulnerable pupils. The site has approximately 120 pupils on roll and classes may have up to around 10 pupils. You may be an allocated form tutor and play a key role in pupil induction. This role may involve a cover supervisor element in teacher absence, and you will have line management responsibility for allocated STLAs.

Applicants should have good knowledge and experience of working with disaffected pupils in a school or other alternative setting. An affinity for pupils with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties is an essential quality for this challenging but rewarding opportunity. Applicants should be resilient, have high expectations, and a sense of humour. You must be able to build positive relationships with our pupils and think outside of the box. You will be responsible for contributing to a small staffing team to ensure that the site runs smoothly. You must be proactive and able to take direction, but also be able to be proactive. A growth mindset and positive ethos are essential characteristics that we are looking for. Calmness at all times is essential!

Payment of mileage and off -site travel can be claimed for in arrears. Candidates must have access to a vehicle and car insurance with business use included at the point of application and job offer. You may travel to pupil’s homes and transport pupils in this role.

Benefits include: Teachers’ Pension Scheme, Westfield Health membership, academy laptop.
