What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking for someone who:

  • Is passionate about working with, and advocating for, students who find learning, communication and regulation a challenge

  • Is resilient and able to work under pressure within a strong team focused towards challenging goals

  • Is an excellent practitioner who can inspire, challenge, support and empower others in the inclusive delivery of a specialist provision

  • Has experience of teaching children or young people with SEND including Autism in a mainstream, resource base or special school setting

  • Has good interpersonal skills, establishing excellent working relationships with all staff, external professionals, governors, students and families

  • Has the experience, skill and ambition to ensure lessons are creative, exciting and engaging as well as being functional and tailored to the specific needs of students

What the school offers its staff

If you are the type of person who fits with our culture, you will love working here, and we will offer you:

  • Support and leadership from highly experienced senior leaders

  • On-going professional development

  • A committed and enthusiastic team who work together to find solutions

Pathway 2:

Students follow a Semi-formal Curriculum, focused upon active hands on learning. Subjects are taught in a cross-curricular manner with a focus upon communication, and functional English and Maths which will equip students with the skills needed to become as independent as possible in their adult lives. Some students in Pathway 2 do not yet have a preferred way of communicating and need an individualised approach to engage them in learning, through sensory approaches. Other students are more practised in their communication and are beginning to learn together as a class.

If you believe you have the skills, energy and vision to support our students, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Come and see if we are the right place for the next step in your career!
