About the Alternative Provision....
Pupils are referred to the academy for a variety of reasons; they may be permanently excluded from a mainstream school, have a medical condition that prevents them from attending school or have been placed at the academy for a period of intervention work.
The school aim to give all pupils a fresh start to make a better future for themselves. With support and the right provision, the school believe all pupils can become successful learners who are prepared socially, emotionally and academically for the challenges of adult life.
All pupils need their teachers to believe that today could be the start to changing their tomorrows and all of our staff are determined to find innovative and exciting ways to re-engage each pupil in learning opportunities.
The school aim to provide all pupils with the best possible standards of education. They want their academy to be a place where young people can thrive, learn and achieve their best. They offer flexible, personalised programmes and a wide range of positive experiences so that young people can develop the confidence to believe in themselves and make positive choices for their futures.
What do you need to be considered......?
- A minimum of a 2:1 degree, ideally in a subject that relates closely to SEN, Psychology, Criminology or Linguistics
- Previous experience working alongside the 7-16 age range (tutoring, mentoring, youthwork, coaching, teaching)
