EdStart opened its first Independent Specialist School in South Manchester in September 2010, and now operates across multiple sites throughout the North West including Bolton, Bury, Liverpool and Oldham.

Our South Manchester site, situated between Sale and Wythenshawe, is our flagship centre with high expectations on our pupils to achieve at GCSE level. We require an Attendance and Admin Officer to join us from September 2018 who will be responsible for maintaining and running the reception area effectively and developing an attendance strategy and system.

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 have the opportunity to develop an individual learning plan with their mentor or teacher which they then follow throughout their time with Edstart.

Our DfE registered centres are all equipped with classrooms, ICT facilities, Smart and interactive white boards, and private one to one mentoring rooms.

Facilities for cooking and art are also features of our centres. As well as creating a suitable learning environment, our centres are pupil friendly with activities available to engage pupils during break times.

Ideally you will have:

· Good skills in Microsoft Office software and working knowledge of email, scheduling, spreadsheets software and office equipment

· Excellent communication skills

· The ability to multi-task and meet changing deadlines
