Centre Manager – In-School Alternative Provision

Grace CollegeGateshead

Term time only + 10 days - 37.5 hours per week

We operate a unique Alternative Provision base within our school and are looking to recruit a Centre Manager to manage the provision and support students therein.

This is an excellent opportunity for professional development and would suit candidates with experience of supporting students with the full range of academic ability, some with complex and challenging difficulties. 

The aim of the provision is to recognise the promise and potential of students enabling them to engage in learning with the focus on enabling students facing difficultly to develop rapidly so as to reintegrate with the mainstream curriculum.

To be successful, you will: 

  • have a strong pupil-centred background
  • have experience of providing high quality alternative provision, mentoring and support tutoring
  • be able to plan and deliver intervention lessons and learning for young people in group settings, particularly for students who are not necessarily following the standard curriculum
  • have a can-do attitude and a flexible approach

As an 11-19 secondary school serving over 1,200 students in central Gateshead, we have a clear vision for excellence in character education, the examined curriculum and in service to our community. We are part of the Emmanuel Schools Foundation, which opens up exceptional opportunities for knowledge sharing and career development – and with the renowned Emmanuel College itself just seven minutes away, we have a clear local model for excellence. We are committed to releasing the potential of our students and staff alike.

Our hope and expectation is that each person will be deeply valued as individuals, challenged to grow as human beings and inspired by learning together. You will be central to delivering our strategy, as you transform both the school and our students’ futures.

Join us and you can expect to be nurtured, supported and encouraged at every step of your career, in line with our Christian ethos. We will invest heavily in your development, with specific career-stage opportunities, one-to-one coaching, research opportunities and collaborative development across the Trust. In short, we are looking for exceptional educators, phenomenal school leaders and committed professionals. We believe that working, as part of our team, you will bring added benefit to our students and families while enhancing and developing your career.

Closing date: 10.00am on Monday, 18 October 2021.
