Are you an outstanding classroom practitioner looking for an exciting role in a special school? 

About the role and you:

As we are launching our Key Stage 4 curriculum, we are seeking to appoint an experienced Maths Teacher, part time, to join our team; what we are really looking for is someone who is passionate about working with students with special needs and someone who is willing to contribute to the broader academy life.

To be successful you will be a creative, enthusiastic individual dedicated to ensuring that students’ needs are met, providing them with a positive learning journey and helping them to achieve their aspirations. We require someone who has experience of planning and delivering GCSE courses. Experience of delivering Entry Level and Functional Skills qualifications would be an advantage. You will need to have experience of adapting lessons to make them accessible to all students while ensuring they are appropriately challenging. 

About us:

Our purpose built building opened in January 2018 and will provide 100 places for students (3-18) with a diagnosis of autism and/or Severe Learning Difficulties. The academy currently has 61 students and will grow each year until it reaches full capacity. 

In return:

You will join a team of committed staff who are dedicated to ensuring students are prepared for the years beyond education and are supported to pursue their dreams. 

This is a fantastic opportunity for an individual who wishes to work in a unique environment. The role will expose you to challenging situations involving students with significant special educational needs; therefore experience of working with children with autism would be advantageous.  The Trust also value continuing professional development, giving you access to a variety of learning opportunities including training courses via the Learning Alliance and opportunities for sharing best practice. This role offers the opportunity for a great work-life balance.
