Salary range: £22,467.00 to £26,192.00

 

Have you successfully supported or taught children and young people? Would you appreciate a change from working in mainstream settings? 

Releasing Potential’s independent special school, for children with Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties, was established in 2017 and was rated ‘Good’ in all areas at its first full inspection in 2018.

We are looking for exceptional individuals to help vulnerable students progress in education. In return, we offer an outstanding package of training, pay and holidays, the opportunity to join a dynamic and committed team, and the prospect of positively impacting the life chances of marginalised young people.

The role

Our provision consists of two elements: the Engage project provides a mixed full time education provision for secondary aged pupils with Education Health and Care Plans in place, who are in need of small scale provision. Engage has been running successfully in Havant since 2011, and in Chichester since 2014. We also run a Mentoring programme for pupils who struggle to cope, even in a small group.

Many of the young people display some challenging behaviour, so patience and a sense of humour are essential requirements, as is the ability to work flexibly in a fast moving professional environment. While experience of teaching is desirable, it is not essential; more important is the ability to engage young people.

The offer

  • The salary range for CDT Subject Lead is £22,467 – £26,192 a year FTE.
  • Annual leave allowance is 32 days plus 8 bank holidays FTE.
  • A full package of free training is available, including Level 3 in the Management of Challenging Behaviour*, First Aid*, Safeguarding*, Level 5 Diploma in Education & Training, MiDAS (minbus driver training)* and a range of National Governing Body qualifications.

  • Ability to deliver a CDT curriculum across both school sites
  • Awareness of Health & Safety and experience of risk assessment
  • Compassion for young people who face barriers to inclusion
  • Ability to stay calm in confrontational situations
  • Confidence to work with groups of young people and one to one
  • Enthusiasm, energy and a good sense of fun
  • A full driving licence is essential
  • A teaching qualification is desirable.
