We require an exceptional teacher of English, who is passionate about providing the best possible education and care for vulnerable students. The post will be based at our Eden school in Blackburn which is a brand new, bespoke, state of the art building.

This post involves teaching English up to GCSE level, along with other appropriate qualifications, as well as supporting none specialist teachers in delivering English to Key Stage 3 students. Significant training, time and support will be given to be confident in delivering high quality learning. Alongside the upper school teaching it provides an exciting opportunity to develop other teachers who are teaching English as part of a thematic primary teaching model at Key Stage 3.

This position would suit a teacher with a proven track record of exceptional practice, who is able to work with vulnerable pupils with social, emotional and mental health difficulties (SEMH). It would suit an individual who is passionate about making a real difference to student’s life chances and supporting them in achieving their potential in essential life skills, which is a high priority for the Education Partnership Trust. The ability to be creative and use imaginative flair to engage is essential, along with having resilience, drive and high expectations to inspire students to achieve. As we are a growing Academy it may also provide an opportunity of further leadership opportunities in the future.

The Education Partnership Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
