Grade/Scale: MPS1 to UPS3 +SEN1 Actual Salary £20,571 - £33,283 +£1,816

Start date: ASAP

Contract: 0.8 Fixed term until 31 August 2023

It is an exciting time in the academy’s development as we look to expand our provision, enhance the curriculum offer and build a reputation as the alternative provider of choice in the county. We have made some exciting appointments in the last few months at a time where recruitment presents it challenges and we are now looking to offer a 0.8 fixed term contract for a teacher to join our academy. The previous post holder was to teach Art and Forest Ed/Horticulture at 2 sites, and we would very much like to continue with the delivery of these subjects. However, we are open to other specialisms.

We are looking to recruit an inspiring teacher to join our academy. We require candidates to have the expertise, knowledge, and drive to plan, develop and deliver high quality lessons to engage our pupils. Our pupils require a variety of teaching techniques and kinaesthetic activities to maintain their interests and engagement. You will require an understanding of pedagogy and excellent behaviour management strategies.

The current staffing teams are small but increasing in size as new posts are developed. The High Peak site will have approximately 30 pupils, and at the Hasland site, approx. 70. We welcome applications from candidates who are able to teach engaging and inspiring lessons to challenging and disengaged KS3 and 4 pupils. This is a core teacher post and we do not employ teachers to teach specific subjects. We will, however, try to ensure that teachers strengths are maximised. Therefore, a teacher with the ability to deliver a range of subjects would be advantageous. As would a candidate who has knowledge of phonics or a primary background and the ability to teach to GCSE.

This post is available initially on a fixed term basis, however, may be made permanent for the right candidate depending on pupil numbers.

We must ensure that we meet the needs of our pupils and where there is demand for places. Travel to the other academy sites may be required for teaching delivery if the need arises or for academy meetings or CPD. Teaching may also take place in pupil’s home or other venues and so this role may be peripatetic at times. Candidates must have access to a vehicle and car insurance with business use included.

Benefits include: Teachers’ Pension Scheme, Westfield Health membership and free parking.

For further information and/or to arrange a school visit please contact Kirsty Blake, HR Advisor, via email (hr@esteemmat.co.uk) or visit our website at www.esteemmat.co.uk/jointheteam. Please use the relevant application form on the MAT website; CVs alone will not be accepted.

Closing date for applications: 09 October 2022 (12:00pm)

Interview date: TBC

We reserve the right to interview candidates prior to the closure date if they meet the criteria for the post and therefore close the application process before the deadline.

Esteem Multi-Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all its pupils. We expect all staff, volunteers and agency staff to share this commitment. The successful candidate will be required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. The possession of a criminal record will not necessarily prevent an applicant from obtaining this post, as all cases are judged individually according to the nature of the role and information provided.

We meet the varied and complex needs of children in Key Stages 2, 3 and 4, at sites located in Chesterfield and in the High Peak.

Every child deserves an education. Our primary aim is to support and re-engage young people, enabling them to think positively about their future pathway, and life after the Support Centre, whether that be re-integration into mainstream, further education or employment. Our Vision: "Inspire, Achieve, Exceed"

Our Pupils will:

Feel safe, valued and trusted
Recognise and achieve their full potential
Take responsibility for their behaviour, and make healthy lifestyle choices
Be positive about themselves and their future
Be tolerant of others, and of the beliefs and views of others
Be successful learners, both independently and when working with others
Be self-motivated and have high expectations

We will achieve this by:

Creating a safe learning environment, free of stigma and negativity
Celebrating the success and achievements of every member of the learning community
Establishing nurturing and supportive relationships between staff and pupils
Setting high expectations for behaviour and academic success
Providing a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum that provides the skills, confidence and qualifications to access opportunities in life
Innovating learning, to engage and inspire
Promoting tolerance and mutual respect
Providing opportunities for students, parents and carers to voice opinions which form part of the decision-making process
Providing an inclusive programme of learning opportunities and experiences that promote engagement
