Alternative Provision Teacher, Manchester

Expiring soon


Date posted:
Start date: May 2019 (or as soon as possible thereafter)
Contract type: Full Time / Part Time
Salary: £20,000 to £25,000 (max salary)
Contract term: Permanent
Suitable for NQTs: Yes

EdStart opened its first Independent Specialist School in South Manchester in September 2010, and now operates across multiple sites throughout the North West. Our primary function is Alternative Provision, serving the region’s schools and young people by developing a suitable environment and curriculum to match their varying needs.  Our pupils each can develop an individual learning plan with their mentor or teacher which they then follow throughout their time with Edstart.

We are looking for a teacher who will be required to teach across the curriculum, ideally combining a secondary-age focus with a primary-age nurturing ability. It is essential that you have effective behaviour management skills and be passionate about working with young people, particularly those who have become disengaged. The post will be predominantly based at our Salford provision. However, there might be an opportunity to work across other centres.

Are you looking for a job which allows you to teach and impact on young people’s lives rather than spend all your time planning and marking?

Our centres use a carousel process which means the need to plan so extensively is reduced and allows more time to work individually with students in line with the learning plan.

This post is suitable for you if you have:

• A strong desire to work with disengaged pupils and make a difference to their experience of education

• The ability to plan differentiated lessons to ensure that all learners get the most out of your lessons.

• A commitment to working in the Alternative Education sector and willingness to take responsibility for the planning of the lessons and learning of the pupils

• Good organisational abilities, a pro-active approach and the ability to form positive relationships with the pupils.

If you are Teacher who can enthuse, motivate and engage students and would like the challenge of working in a demanding and rewarding environment then we want to hear from you.
