Job summary

Seven Hills School requires a Part Time Class Teacher to cover for Maternity Leave for 1 year, or the earlier return of the post holder. The successful applicant will be required to work 3 days per week at The Bridge, post 16 provision. You will work as class tutor and be committed to providing rich and challenging learning experiences across the curriculum.

The Bridge is a joint provision, providing post 16 education for Talbot and Seven Hills students in preparation for them moving on to further education settings. The Bridge opened in September 2020 and is situated on the Newfield/Talbot site in a separate building to Talbot school.

Currently, Seven Hills students and Talbot students follow separate curricula. However, students have many opportunities to expand their friendship groups and develop their social skills at break and lunchtimes. There are also opportunities for students from both schools to work collaboratively on joint projects.

Students at The Bridge will experience a curriculum that continues to challenge and develop academic skills, as well as developing key skills in preparation for adult life. The Bridge is equipped with an independent living room where students can practice skills important for adult life such as home safety, cooking, cleaning, and using a washing machine, as well as the social skills required for working alongside others.

The Bridge provides a unique opportunity for students to experience ‘moving-on’ with the support of familiar staff and routines and to broaden their experiences, prior to them leaving school and embarking on the next phase of their educational journey.

An ability to establish excellent relationships with students and deliver a wide range of subjects to students is essential. The successful applicant will be expected to teach students with a range of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

Ideally the person appointed will have relevant experience/qualifications within SEND and be an enthusiastic, committed and a skilled professional. However, colleagues from both primary and secondary mainstream backgrounds with a willingness to learn will also be considered. Applications from Early Career Stage teachers are welcome, the school is able to provide a programme of support and development for ECTs. An up to date Team Teach qualification or a willingness to train for this will be essential. Applicants should be comfortable working as part of an experienced team of teaching and support staff and specialist professional colleagues.

This post would suit professionals who are passionate about innovation in teaching and learning especially in the specialist sector. It will require resilient and highly effective teachers who are committed to providing stimulating and engaging learning activities and who are able to use visual support to structure learning and classroom organisation.
