Grade/Scale: MPS/UPS +SEN1 Actual Salary £25,714 to £41,604 +£2,270

Start date: 9th January 2023

Contract: Permanent

It is a really 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 really exciting appointments in the last few months at a time where recruitment presents it challenges and we are now looking to offer a full -time permanent contract for a teacher to join our academy.

We are looking to recruit an inspiring and flexible core teacher to join our academy. The staffing teams are small compared to a mainstream and the posts will suit teachers who will take ownership of subjects and are willing to be flexible to meet the needs of the pupils and the academy. The High Peak site currently has approximately 25 pupils on roll and the Hasland site around 65 pupils.

The successful candidate will be required to continue with the delivery of the following subjects at KS3 and 4 for the remainder of the academic year, either:

Post 1; PSHRE, Citizenship, Futures (careers, finance, ICT essential digital skills embedded)


Post 2; science and Forest Education/horticulture.

There may be an opportunity to offer an internal T&L responsibility role in the near future to candidates who can offer a high level of expertise and prove themselves to be exceptional teachers and highly skilled professionals who can contribute to the academy’s drive to develop at a rapid pace.

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 which is not subject specific. Therefore, a teacher with the ability to deliver a range of subjects would be advantageous. Experience of delivering vocational or other kinaesthetic courses would be welcomed. As would a candidate who has knowledge of phonics or a primary background and the ability to teach to GCSE. However, this is not a stipulation.

This post will be based at one of our sites for mileage purposes, however our academy is multi sited and therefore a teaching commitment may be expected at more than one site and there may be travel for CPD and meetings. We must ensure that we meet the needs of our pupils and where there is demand for places. 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 an academy visit please contact Janine Dix via email (jdix@nedsc.derbyshire.sch.uk) or visit the esteem 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: 07 October 2022 (12:00pm)

Interview date: TBC

We reserve the right to interview suitable candidates upon application and may close the application process prior to this date

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.

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

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
