Full Time

An opportunity for a Math Teacher who can work with KS 4 pupils has arisen at a PRU/alternative provision in East London.

The Role:

An established East London Alternative Provision has an opening for an experienced Math Teacher with AP/PRU/SEN experience from January 2018. Lessons will need to be tailored to the diverse array of student needs and work off the KS3-4 Math/GCSE curriculum. Due to the students’ behavioural provisions and removal from mainstream settings, many students have gaps in their learning which need to be identified and targeted by the teaching and support teams. While a formal SEND qualification is not essential, QTS and previous experience working with AP students are essential. A strong willingness to work with vulnerable students with behavioural and mental health disabilities is a key requirement. Excellent levels of support are offered by the school’s SLT, LSA’s and Key Workers. Applicants must have UK experience and be willing to commit to the school on a long-term basis to ensure consistency and lasting relationships are fully developed with the students. This is a unique opportunity that would suit a Math Teacher looking for a change or someone who is committed to the education of vulnerable pupils. There is an SEN allowance and generous salary package on offer for this role so Upper MPS and TLR candidates are encouraged to apply.

The School:

This is a PRU committed to re-engaging pupils in their education and re-integrating them back into mainstream schooling. The school has a strong focus on accurately assessing learning difficulties and addressing key behavioural issues from the outset which has led them to achieve a high degree of success over recent years. The school caters for ‘at risk’ students whether they have been excluded from their mainstream schooling or are at risk of doing so. The staff and leadership work hard to ensure they secure post-16 placements for all students who attend and equip them with skills such as resilience and the structure needed for a successful transition back to their mainstream pathway. The development of students is a core focus, involving families and the community to strengthen progress and ensure lasting relationships between stakeholders are fostered.

To Apply:
