We are looking to recruit a strong Changing Behaviours Manager within our inclusion Link provision to ensure that all students who access this provision are provided with relevant curriculum work and are fully supported in their learning.

This new role will be predominantly based in our Link provision which provides a supported curricular provision for students who have difficulties maintaining the expected standard of behaviour within mainstream provision. It will be part of the ‘changing behaviours’ team (a subsidiary provision of the Inclusion Team) who provide a “wrap-around” package for each student. Individual Learning Packages include specific interventions or alternative provisions alongside a core academic curriculum and have a focus on developing skills which will support the learner back into their mainstream provision. Please see the job description and person specification for further information.

Barnsley Academy is a rapidly improving school, the successful candidate will be joining us at an exciting time in our development following our Progress 8 score which showed the Academy as the most improved in Barnsley. The department is ambitious and we know that we have the skills, drive and support to provide an outstanding learning experience for our students. The department is currently progressing from strength to strength and we are confident that outcomes will improve again this year.
