I am seeking to recruit an outstanding graduate to coordinate and deliver an inclusion and learning support programme from September 2017 in a rapidly improving specialist performing arts school in Hertfordshire, Borehamwood. The school is at an exciting place to work with passionate students and staff offering an industry focused curriculum.

The school's main aim is for all students to develop the capabilities and skills that will help them to succeed in the work place.

Having visited the school and met with key staff I found the school to be friendly with a warm atmosphere where students were proud of their school and engaged in learning.

Responsible to: Assistant Principal (Behaviour and SEND)

Purpose: working directly with the SENDCo, and assistant principal for behaviour and safety, and other experienced teaching professionals providing support and guidance.

The successful candidate will be directly involved in envisioning and implementing a programme of powerful support for 14 - 19 year old students who face barriers to their learning (such as those who are disadvantaged or have learning needs). Working directly with our SENDCo, and assistant principal for behaviour and safety, and other experienced teaching professionals providing support and guidance, your role will be to:

* implement personalised learning programmes with individual students / groups in or outside lessons

No prior teaching, educational training / qualification is necessary. Full training and guidance will be provided. Experience of working with young people is desirable. An area of interest or skill in line with our specialism is desirable but not essential.
