What skills and experience we're looking for

An enthusiastic and committed teacher, passionate about supporting disadvantaged young people to build their self esteem is required at Francis Barber PRU. The successful candidate will be committed to supporting pupils in achieving accredited programmes of learning in PE and Sports education.

This post is based across both sites of the Francis Barber PRU in central Wandsworth and in Tooting. There is the opportunity for further progression for a suitable experienced candidate.

You will be teaching small groups of KS3 and KS4 pupils in a supportive environment, in addition will be able to access leisure centres to enhance the curriculum. You will be leading a strong team of mentors and strong support is in place.

It will be important that the PE teacher is able to provide a range of PE activities to engage pupils with challenging behaviour. We currently offer the Sports Leadership accreditation.

The successful candidate would be expected to keywork/tutor a group of pupils and possibly teach another subject.

What the school offers its staff

Francis Barber is a good PRU with many outstanding features. We have a wide variety of pupils on roll including pupils who are excluded or dual registered, those undergoing statutory assessment or have an EHCP. Many of the pupils have faced challenges within mainstream schools. Some continue to be challenging within the PRU but there is a strong staff team helping the young people to manage their behaviour within a supportive and caring school-like environment.

If you enjoy working with young people, have initiative and are a good team player we would welcome your application. Within this setting there is scope for further leadership opportunities for a highly experienced candidate.
