KS3/4 Teacher with English job summary

Job Title: KS3/4 Core Teacher
Location: AVESC, Mikado Road, Sawley, Nottingham. NG10 3GN
Grade/Scale: MPS/UPS + SEN 1 Actual Salary £25,714 to £41,604 + £2,270
Start date: ASAP
Contract: Full-time Teacher, Permanent

The Amber Valley and Erewash Support Centre is an alternative provision academy who provide 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 KS3/4 teacher with excellent interpersonal skills. We would prefer the successful candidate to have a specialism in English although this is not essential. The roll of a core teacher is to deliver a variety of subjects to pupils who have gaps in their learning, lack confidence and self-belief and can sometime be resistant to engage. The role will require some working across our three sites although the primary base will be Sawley.

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.

Reporting directly to the Deputy Headteacher.

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

Please use the relevant application form on the MAT website; CVs alone will not be accepted. Previous applicants need not apply. Please note we may appoint the suitable candidate prior to the closing date.

Closing date for applications: 17 July 2022 (12:00pm)
Interview date: Week Commencing 20 July 2022, at the Sawley site, Mikado Road, Sawley, Nottingham. NG10 3GN

Esteem Multi-Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all its students. We expect all staff, volunteers and agency staff to share this commitment. The successful candidate will be required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.

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
