Full Time permanent positions

Cotswold Chine, part of Novalis Trust, is a small independent residential and day special school for young people aged 7-19 years. The school is a trauma informed organisation supporting young people who in some cases have experienced childhood trauma and adversity and who as a result have complex needs.

We are looking for a teacher with a particular interest in students with special educational needs, including those with autistic spectrum disorder, attachement disorders and other learning and behavioural difficulties. The post is suitable for teachers qualified in primary or secondary and applications from all subject specialisms are welcome. An NQT or a teacher within their first years of teaching is welcome to apply. Experience in special needs is not essential as training is provided. The ability to form relationships with young people and a flexible approach to working with others are important.

The successful candidate will teach and nurture a small class group of 4-8 students and will initially be supported by a more experienced teacher.

This is an opportunity to join the school at a time of growth and development in professsional understanding of trauma and attachment disorders.

Novalis Trust is committed to safeguarding. All applications will be required to undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service Enhanced Check for Regulated Activity.
