An exciting opportunity has arisen to supervise lessons and provide pastoral care at the school’s alternative provision unit.  The alternative provision unit supports students who are not able to attend mainstream lessons for a variety of reasons and is an important part of the outstanding educational provision offered by Chesterton.

A teaching qualification is not necessary but applicants must be enthusiastic and have a genuine interest in supporting students with challenging circumstances.  This role is focused on making a difference in the lives of vulnerable learners. It is a challenge, but it is also a fantastic opportunity to help a group of young people  achieve their ambitions.

Chesterton is graded Outstanding by OFSTED and is placed 14th in the country out of all schools, based on the progress that all students make during their time with us. We are planning an extensive building development on our current site to admit more students, and we are currently expanding our multi-academy trust. This is an exciting time to be joining our thriving academy.

Closing Date: Thursday 1st March at 9am
