What the school offers its staff

Christchurch Learning Centre is a small maintained Pupil Referral Unit that offers support and educational packages for those pupils that are unable to sustain a place at a mainstream school. The Centre works in partnership with a number of schools and outside agencies with a goal to returning pupils back to their mainstream setting, where appropriate. Pupils study a full range of National Curriculum subjects to GCSE level, in addition to an adapted PE and PSHE curriculum.

This is a challenging and exciting opportunity for a qualified teacher to work in a PRU as part of a committed team, helping to develop the learning, behavioural and social skills of young people in BCP. Successful applicants will be delivering Science predominantly at all levels up to GCSE, to pupils with a range of needs including emotional and behavioural difficulties at KS3 & 4. Further training will be offered as required.

The successful applicant will be required to produce appropriate planning and track pupil progress against national expectations. Strong organisation, class and behaviour management skills are essential. They will support pupils in the Centre predominantly but may be required to teach at other approved venues as directed by senior leaders. Applicants will therefore require a full driving licence and a suitably insured vehicle.

The Centre values the diversity of our workforce and welcomes applicants from all sectors of the community. The Centre is also committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people; this is a commitment which we expect all staff and volunteers to share. The successful candidate will be required to have an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check in line with the Government safer recruitment guidelines.
