Job summary

We have a fantastic opportunity for a motivated professional looking for a pathway into a teaching career in SEND. You may be a recent graduate, a career-changer with a good degree or studying for QTLS, with a strong work record and an ambition to become a qualified teacher.

This may include a period teaching at another school, and demonstrating that you meet the Teacher Standards.

A dynamic team leader
An excellent communicator
Focused on improving long term outcomes for our young people

We can offer:

Happy students who love coming to school
Supportive and ambitious colleagues
Well resourced and engaging working environment
