Excellent classroom management skills and high expectations of all pupils are essential as well as a comprehensive knowledge of the curriculum and new assessment framework.

We are looking for teachers who:

  • Ideally, you will have worked within an SEN setting or with discrete ASD groups of students in a mainstream environment
  • Have the highest expectations of pupils and themselves with a desire to professionally develop
  • Are enthusiastic, flexible, imaginative and forward thinking
  • Have the ability to nurture, inspire, motivate and engage students with ASD to achieve and succeed
  • Are able to form positive relationships with students, staff, parents and governor
  • Possess excellent interpersonal and organisational skills


What the school offers its staff

In return, our successful candidates will receive:

  • The opportunity to help shape our future by joining a LAT academy
  • A school community committed to nurturing young people with ASD alongside raising achievement and attainment
  • A stunning environment with modern building, excellent resources and facilities, purpose built for students with ASD
  • A strong commitment to support professional development opportunities
  • A supportive Governing Body and Leadership Team dedicated to exceptional outcomes within a happy environment which nurtures and supports all staff and students

This is a permanent opportunity offering MPS/UPS commensurate with experience + SEN Allowance. For those interested in visiting the academy, please contact joinus@latrust.org.uk in the first instance.

Working with us at Snowfields Academy: Snowfields Academy opened in September 2020 in Bearsted as a new secondary provision for students with ASD. In September 2022 will opened an additional Campus at Cranbrook. When full we will offer 240 places across year groups 7-13 for young people who are working at or close to age-related expectations. Class sizes are small with 12/13 in each class, supported by 2-3 teaching assistants according to need. We offer a range of GCSEs and other qualifications for young people on a blend of academic and vocational pathways.

The academy benefits from being a brand new school with a design tailored to the students it provides for, carefully considered to make the most of both its inside and outside environments in order to enhance the learning of its students. The environment supports specialisms in horticulture and catering at Bearsted with a Cafe and Teaching kitchen and horticulture facilities at Bearsted and a working farm at Cranbrook. We will work closely with local businesses to offer an outstanding range of work experience opportunities and supported internships.
