The Abbey School invites applications for the post of Educational Professional to work within the school’s Alternative Curriculum Provision. We are looking to appoint a well-organised creative individual who is committed to inclusion. The successful candidate will manage a small facility that will offer personalised education programmes (mostly part time) to some of our most vulnerable students.
The initiative is in response to changes in Kent regarding exclusions and the alternative provision. It is expected that we will reduce exclusions by targeting support to our most challenging students.
Experience, of working with vulnerable students is an advantage, but most valued is the enthusiasm to support and motivate young people and the ability to lead as a positive role model. We are seeking reliable candidates who have; patience, understanding as well as being team players.
