Job summary

This is an exciting opportunity to work with the University of Brighton Academies Trust in a new and innovative project which places inclusion at the centre of our practice. In order to reduce exclusions and behavioural incidents across our Trust Academies we are opening a new and exciting Flexible Learning Provision which will support small groups of pupils to improve their behaviour within a nurturing, safe and secure environment. 

The provision will demonstrate a commitment to inclusion and strive to use innovative and child-centred techniques, alongside a rich and engaging curriculum that is tailored to meet the needs of the pupils. The provision will work closely with external agencies as well as our own in-house support services e.g Speech and Language Therapists to develop an approach that best supports the pupils' needs.

As the provision develops, it will offer outreach support to Trust academies to enable the successful transition of these pupils back into their mainstream classrooms. 

We will offer the successful candidate a comprehensive programme of CPD and enable them to provide outreach support, in the form of coaching around behaviour management and strategies to best support SEN pupils.
