Location: Esteem Valley Academy, Bennerley Site, Bennerley Avenue, Ilkeston, DE7 8PF

Grade/Scale: MPS/UPS +SEN1 £24,000 - £37,220 +£2,031.20

Start date: September 2024

Contract: 0.8 FTE Teacher, 26 hours per week

Esteem Valley Academy is seeking a flexible, committed, enthusiastic and highly skilled teacher to lead the planning, delivery and development of English at KS4. EVA is an alternative provision academy which provides 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 and Sawley.

We are seeking to appoint a talented and enthusiastic KS4 teacher with excellent interpersonal skills. The role will involve delivering English qualifications to pupils who have gaps in their learning, lack confidence and self-belief and can sometime be resistant to engage. The successful 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, alternative provision or SEND type setting. An affinity for pupils with behaviour, emotional and social difficulties is an essential quality for this challenging but rewarding opportunity.

Mileage claims are included in this role. There may also be travel to our other academy sites for meetings, Inset and CPD. You are required to have daily access to transport with business use included on your insurance. You may be required to transport pupils in your own car and contribute to the blended learning offer by delivering sessions in pupil’s homes if required.

What the school offers its staff

Benefits include: LGPS Pension Scheme, Westfield Health membership and academy laptop.

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
