Selston High School is a ‘Good’ school with ambitious plans to become an even better one. The recruitment of the very best staff is central to the vision Governors have for the school. 

We are looking for an inclusive, student focused, resilient, emotionally literate person to work as part of a small team, together with the current Alternative Curriculum Coordinator, to support students at risk of permanent exclusion from school to remain in education and/or training. 

The role will involve delivering some one-to-one or group sessions with the students who are following the Alternative Curriculum pathway.

We are keen to play to the strengths of the successful candidate so would be interested in hearing about what you believe you could deliver as part of your application.

You will be accountable, together with the Alternative Curriculum Coordinator, for the attendance, behaviour and outcomes of the small cohort of students you are working with.

In return for hard work, dedication and commitment to these vulnerable young people you will receive good quality, on-going CPD, excellent support from the Student Support Centre and the Pastoral team and opportunities to develop your own skills in teaching or small group work. 

The successful candidate will have some background working or volunteering in schools, youth work, social care or with vulnerable young people in other contexts. They will also have an awareness of safeguarding when working with vulnerable young people.
