What the school offers its staff

The Outwood Family of Schools pride ourselves on fully supporting colleagues within the Family both professionally and personally.

We work hard to ensure we reduce workload on staff, allowing more time in the classroom to put our vision of students first, raising standards and transforming lives into practice.

As a founding Trust of the National Institute of Education (NIoT), we will actively invest in your future through working closely with the Outwood Institute of Education and NIoT to offer access to a wide range of CPD opportunities, with all teaching staff receiving a minimum of two hours of CPD each week.

We also offer a generous employment package with a whole host of staff benefits, including family friendly policies, enhanced occupational benefits available (such as maternity, adoption and parental leave) with no qualifying period, funded CPD for qualifications up to and including Masters level plus other exclusive benefits including a partnership with car leasing company, Synergy.

All academies within the Outwood Family have gained or are working towards the IQM Inclusive Schools Award with 18 having Centre of Excellence status and one holding Flagship status.

Further details about the role

Do you have a real passion for working with young people who need additional pastoral support to fulfil their potential in school? We are seeking a hardworking, dynamic and driven teacher to support small groups of students from years 9-11 as part of our internal alternative curriculum. This post will involve working with students to support them to re-engage with their learning and to feel a sense of belonging, pride and accomplishment for themselves.

The ideal candidate would have a more practical teaching specialism and would be prepared to deliver practical sessions to students. Working alongside our wider Inclusion team, our maths, english and science tutors and our specialist departments, you would create and deliver personalised packages for the young people in your care with a focus on securing achievement. We would also expect you to build relationships with external delivery partners so that we can create a really varied and interesting learning offer.

Please note that, on successful appointment to this post, you may be required to deliver a small number of mainstream lessons on a weekly basis at times when this group of young people are working with external partners. Full standard teaching colleague pay and conditions would, of course, apply and appropriate planning, preparation and assessment time would be factored within the timetable.

As an academy, staff do their best to keep students safe. We have a culture of vigilance and we will always take a considered and sensitive approach in order to support all our students. Outwood Academy Haydock is committed to ensuring that students are aware of behaviour towards them that is not acceptable and how they can keep themselves safe.
