Thinking of a role to further your teaching career? Are you ready for a new challenge?

New River College Secondary can provide both.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a dedicated Art teacher who is looking for a new challenge and has a flexible approach, to join a committed team at New River College.

The post holder will need to be a confident and effective teacher who can deliver exciting and fun lessons. We are looking for a teacher who relishes a challenge, who wants to try new ideas and who genuinely wants to contribute to the lives of young people with drive and passion.

Many of our pupils are below national age related literacy and numeracy levels when they arrive. Ability to engage children with SEMH is more important than the phase you are  used to teaching so both primary and secondary trained teachers are encouraged to apply. Experience of a second subject would be beneficial, a willingness to do so is essential.

New River College comprises of three pupil referral units in Islington (primary, secondary and medical), for pupils with social, emotional and mental health challenges (SEMH). We teach children and young people aged five to sixteen years old who have been permanently excluded or participate in our preventative programmes to address their behaviour, and children and young people with complex SEMH or medical needs. New River College Secondary is split across two sites so a willingness to teach on multiple sites is essential.

We offer a core curriculum to all pupils which includes English, Maths, Science, Humanities and a selection of foundation subjects. We also work with a number of alternative providers around enhanced learning opportunities.
