Job description

Meadowbrook College (Alternative Provision Academy)

Hospitality & Catering/Cooking Teacher
Part-time (2 days/wk – Monday and Tuesday)
MPS/UPS (£26,298-£40,490) + SEN (£2,209)

Are you a Hospitality & Catering/Cooking teacher with a real passion for your subject and looking for a new challenge?
Can you build positive relationships with young people and make a difference?
Are you enthusiastic, resilient and have a flexible approach.
Do you have the experience and passion to give the most vulnerable children and young people the best chance to succeed and thrive?

We are looking for a skilled, part-time, KS3/4 ‘Cooking/Catering’ teacher for our Banbury base for a September start. You will be part of a passionate and dedicated team making a real difference to young people’s lives. Our Cooking/Hospitality students work towards a variety of qualifications and in addition prepare meals each day for the small school population at lunchtime. Students also have the opportunity to cater for special events such as the end of year Graduation and Christmas dinner and parents/carers evenings.

This exciting and varied role will provide you with a wide range of experiences, including:
● being a tutor to a small group of students
● developing your skills in working with children with SEMH/ASD/Mental Health difficulties
● opportunity to work with primary age pupils in support of them developing their life skills

We believe in a shared team ethos, working together using flexible and supportive approaches to develop students’ learning and behaviour. Meadowbrook staff have a ‘can do’ attitude that makes a real difference to the lives of our students; many of which have become disengaged with education and lost the confidence to achieve their full potential.

We are always looking for creative and innovative ways forward and offer a variety of opportunities for ongoing professional development and training. We are working in an ever-changing educational climate where the need for an alternative provision solution is increasing. We are always adapting and new opportunities are always evolving. We very much value colleagues who are keen to be involved in the continuing development of the school.
