Batley Multi Academy Trust’s sole purpose is to provide an outstanding education through our family of schools. Batley Multi Academy Trust currently comprises Batley Girls’ High School, Upper Batley High School, Batley Grammar School, Healey Junior, Infant and Nursery School and Field Lane Junior, Infant and Nursery School.
We are an ‘Outstanding’ 11-19 school and we are very proud of our achievements: ‘Students achieve exceptionally well in this outstanding academy. They make rapid and sustained progress’ (Ofsted, 2013). We have an ethos based around the ideas of Achievement, Respect and Transformation (ART). Respect for self, for others and for learning is at the core of everything, we do. We are dedicated to investing in our staff and passionately committed to their development, providing a supportive environment where people can truly grow and flourish.
We are seeking to appoint a Counsellor for our school. The post would suit an experienced qualified counsellor seeking to expand their counselling expertise. The role is offered on a permanent basis working 24 hours per week over 4 days 08.30-3pm Monday-Thursday; however, the successful candidate will need to be flexible with these hours to meet the needs of the School.
The successful applicants will provide a high quality confidential counselling service for students and staff in accordance with BACP guidelines within the Wellbeing Centre. The post holder must hold a recognised qualification in counselling or psychotherapy and have excellent interpersonal skills with the ability to convey empathy and relate well to all members of the school and the wider community.
This is an excellent opportunity to join a supportive School where development for staff is a priority.
