We are an Alternative Provision Academy based in Oxfordshire working with children from aged 5 to 16. Our Learning Support team work alongside our students to re-engage with their learning by helping them to overcome the difficulties that present as barriers to their learning and success in school. Learning Support Coaches may also be involved in supporting students with safeguarding issues by attending associated meetings; experience of or willingness to support at multi-agency meetings and linking with the family would be desirable.

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/training. Meadowbrook College is a welcoming, nurturing and stimulating environment to work in. If this role appeals to you please contact us to find out more.
