What skills and experience we're looking for

Lodestar Academy is looking for a Teacher (SEND Interventions)to join our team and support our more vulnerable students to make progress in their learning, sometimes outside the classroom in non-traditional teaching environments such as outdoor education and off-site activities.

By prioritising academic achievement and introducing behaviour interventions and therapeutic support where necessary, it will enable them to re-integrate at the same key stage as their peers, and go on to access opportunities into employment and further education.

What our Trust will offer you:

  • Minimum starting salary £30,863 for all ECTs
  • With an outstanding Leadership and Management team, we are focused on providing our staff with bespoke CPD tailored to the stage they are at in their career.
  • Support from across the Trust to help you deliver outstanding teaching and learning through resources, mentoring and school visits
  • Reduced membership of a fully-equipped fitness suite and classes – located on the site of Brixham College and Plympton Academy.
  • Focus on staff wellbeing, including 24/ Employee Assistance Programme, free flu vaccinations, eye care vouchers.
