What the school offers its staff

It is an exciting time for Alternative Provision in East Sussex as we embark on a collaborative journey of systemic transformation and improvement.

Working in partnership with East Sussex County Council and London South East Academies Trust (LSEAT), SABDEN Multi Academy Trust is seeking committed, dynamic and talented staff to join its team at College Central – which will become East Sussex Academy (part of LSEAT) later this year.

Our school provides education for 4–16-year-olds who have been excluded from mainstream settings across the county. Demand for this provision has increased dramatically since the pandemic, creating many challenges and resulting in a need for the school to significantly improve.

Further details about the role

If successful, you will be employed initially by SABDEN Multi Academy Trust and then transfer via TUPE to London South East Academies Trust later this year, when the school becomes East Sussex Academy.

Commitment to safeguarding

The school has a proven commitment to 'Equality of Opportunity' and actively promotes the welfare and safeguarding of young people. Successful applicants will be subject to an enhanced check from the Disclosure and Debarring Service (DBS).
