Contract: Full-time Teacher, Permanent

The Amber Valley and Erewash Support Centre is a pupil referral unit providing education to students who are at risk of permanent exclusion or who have already been permanently excluded from mainstream education. Our provision caters for students in Key Stages 2, 3 and 4, at sites located in Ilkeston, Kirk Hallam, Sawley and Chesterfield.

We are seeking to appoint a talented and enthusiastic core teacher with excellent interpersonal skills to work at our Kirk Hallam site.

The Kirk Hallam site works with primary and secondary aged pupils who have been, or are at risk, of permanent exclusion from mainstream school.

Reporting directly to the Site Lead, the ideal candidate will inspire, motivate, challenge and support students to reach their full potential, have a good understanding of their academic, social and emotional needs, be a team player and have a positive approach to challenge and change.

Applicants should also have good knowledge and experience of working with disaffected pupils in a mainstream school or alternative provision type setting, especially at KS2. An affinity for pupils with behaviour, emotional and social difficulties is an essential quality for this challenging but rewarding opportunity.

Benefits include Teachers Pension Scheme, Westfield Health membership and free parking.

About Amber Valley and Erewash Support Centre

The Amber Valley and Erewash Support Centre is a pupil referral unit providing education to students who are at risk of permanent exclusion or who have already been permanently excluded from mainstream education. Our provision caters for students in Key Stages 2, 3 and 4, at sites located in Ilkeston, Kirk Hallam, Sawley and Chesterfield.

Our Academy has approximately 160 pupils on roll and is split over four key teams:
• Alternative Provision
• KS4 Site at Sawley
• KS3 Site at Bennerley
• KS2/3 Site at Kirk Hallam

Whilst the majority of our students have been permanently excluded, we work closely with local school clusters and the local authority to provide education opportunities to young people who are at risk of exclusion. Such placements have been highly successful in preventing numerous permanent exclusions in Derbyshire.

We are committed to working in partnership with young people, their parents and carers, their schools and other agencies to re-engage them and enable them to become successful learners and responsible citizens. Where students are able to demonstrate positive behaviour and a desire to achieve, we aim to help them transition back to mainstream school. For those who require a more alternative approach, we provide a balanced and varied curriculum, delivered through good quality teaching and learning.

Whilst for many, a pupil referral unit may seem to be the end of one's academic career, we see it as merely a change in direction.

Further information about our academy can be found on the website at www.avesc.derbyshire.sch.uk
