The Role

The desired Primary Teacher will be working 1:1 with a young boy that struggles with his Social, Emotional and Mental Health(SEMH) difficulties.

Minimum requirements for this role are QTS, with experience of working with young people that have emotional difficulties. Ideally, some kind of therapeutic or counselling background would also be more than welcomed. Because of the background and trauma this student has been through, and because of guidelines within his EHCP (Education, Health and Care Plan) we do require a Male Teacher.

  • Hold Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). 
  • Have experience teaching primary education
