South Quay College (SQC) is an outstanding 14-19 provider with a solid track record of impacting young people's lives through education, work-related learning and personal development. Having originally been established as an alternative provision, we have recently re positioned ourselves as an enterprise specialist college.
Our programmes consist of a Key Stage 4 Alternative Provision for students who have struggled to thrive in mainstream education, and a Key Stage 5 college for 16-19 year old's aspiring to a work-related learning route. Many of our students face significant barriers to education and employment and our delivery model seeks to address these barriers. Our aim is to support and equip our students to progress to positive, sustained outcomes in education and employment.
Our provision has an intensively staffed pastoral model, with all students offered one to one coaching and progression support.
Context of the role
At South Quay College, we operate a small school model with a holistic and inclusive approach to learning, and an emphasis on personal development. Students follow a vocational pathway, core curriculum subjects, and a dynamic programme of enterprise and citizenship activities that develop their transferable skills and fuel their ambitions.
This summer saw a strong set of results across KS4 and KS5, with significant improvements in English and Maths. By appointing a Media Teacher, we aim to build on this success and to develop a robust and dynamic core offer that will equip our students for future success.
We are looking to appoint an outstanding and dynamic Media Teacher, to work under the Head of Specialism and complement our existing team. We expect you to have strong subject knowledge and a real passion for Media. You will have high standards, be hard working, enthusiastic and share an understanding that all members of staff have a collective responsibility to ensure that every student achieves to the best of their ability.
This unique opportunity will suit an ambitious Media Teacher who is seeking to challenge themselves by joining our supportive learning community.
The successful candidate will be a resilient self-starter who will foster a spirit of both innovation and excellence in their team. They will have excellent interpersonal and organisational skills, and be able to transform the learning experiences of even the most disengaged students.
They should be able to work under the instruction/guidance of teaching/senior staff to undertake work/care/support programmes, to enable access to learning for students and to assist the teacher in the management of students and the classroom. Work may be carried out in the classroom or outside the main teaching area.
In addition, we are keen to appoint someone who is as passionate as we are about helping students to acquire essential work related numeracy and literacy skills, and has the vision to embed both across the organisation.
Whilst the work will be challenging, the benefits of working in a small-scale, alternative environment will be attractive to candidates who have a hands-on, creative approach to teaching.
