Managed Intervention Centre Pilot Project Lead job summary

Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT) is delighted to have secured funding to set up two new trauma-informed, short term Managed Intervention Centres (MIC’s) aimed at reducing the risk of permanent exclusion and behavioural difficulties among pupils at participating OAT schools in Stoke-on-Trent and Norfolk. We are looking for a pilot project leader to manage both centres. Each centre will be located near to an OAT school but not in the same building. The programme will be accessed by 8-10 schools, delivered by MIC staff under the leadership of OAT for a pilot period of three academic terms from April 2024, and independently evaluated.

This project will make a real difference to the most vulnerable students and is aimed at improving the behaviour of those who have been identified as at risk of suspension and/or exclusion, increase mainstream staff skills in trauma-informed intervention and provide a local centre of excellence. We are looking for a pilot lead who will have specific responsibility for both MIC’s, line managing the Lead Teacher at each location and ensuring the project is delivered with fidelity to our well-established Westminster Education Centre (WEC) model. The pilot lead can be based anywhere as they will travel between the two sites (travel and subsistence expenses will be met).

MIC’s offer a managed intervention programme with short term placements of up to five weeks for students at risk of being excluded from mainstream school. There are a maximum of 15 referred students at any one time with four members of staff. The programme is underpinned by a trauma-informed approach using a recognised trauma-informed framework.  Students are taught an academic curriculum but with a heavy PSHE focus, and given strategies to cope better in lessons so they can return and complete their education in mainstream school.

At OAT, we believe there’s nothing more important than educating the next generation, and our teams across the organisation are dedicated to ensuring that the education we offer is the best it can be. When you join us at OAT, regardless of your role, you can be certain that your work will have purpose and meaning.

While you look after our students, we will take care of you. Wellbeing is at the core of our people strategy so we offer a range of practical and holistic measures to support your health and wellbeing, from access to emotional support services and retail discounts to salary sacrifice schemes for cars and bicycles available to all OAT employees.

If you are interested in exploring this opportunity further, we would be delighted to hear from you. Please contact Wasim Butt, director of AP and special academies at wasim.butt@ormistonacademies.co.uk to arrange an informal discussion. You can apply by sending your CV and supporting statement to recruitment@ormistonacademies.co.uk or if you would prefer the structure of an application form, please follow the Apply Now link on OAT Careers.

The closing date for applications is Monday 2 October at 12 noon with shortlisting taking place soon after and interviews expected to be 9, 12 & 13 October.
