Do you believe that Teachers have a critical role in transforming learning and enriching the lives of young people? Would you like to be part of something energetic, innovative and empowering? If so, we want to hear from you.

We have an exciting opportunity for a subject leader of mechanics and motor vehicle technology or construction skills to join our vocational team. This unique opportunity would allow you to set up a new curriculum delivering ABC and/or City and Guilds qualifications to very small groups of students aged 14-19 in an impressive workshop space. We are looking for an experienced practitioner with relevant trade qualifications, recent industry experience, and the passion, knowledge and skills to deliver Entry Level 3- Level 2 qualifications to young people with a range of special educational needs. You will need to have enthusiasm and patience to personalise learning and have the communication skills needed to make network links with local industry to help our students’ transition from sixth form to employment or further training.

You should hold Qualified Teacher Status (or QTS anticipated or prepared to study/achieve QTS or equivalent).

You will have high expectations, a love of challenge and a determination to make a difference to the lives of our learners. For the right candidates we can also offer the opportunity for additional leadership responsibility to make full use of any previous experience.

The role provides routine opportunities for professional development that can lead to specialist SEND accreditation.
