Thinking of a role to further your teaching career?

Are you ready for a new challenge? 

New River College Secondary and New River College Medical can provide both.

This is a fantastic opportunity for two dedicated English teachers who are looking for a new challenge and have a flexible approach, to join a committed team at New River College Secondary and New River College Medical. 

The post holders will need to be confident and effective teachers who can deliver exciting and fun lessons. We are looking for teachers who relish a challenge, who want to try new ideas and who genuinely want 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 teaching a second subject would be beneficial, a willingness to do so is essential.

NRC Medical staff work with KS1-4 pupils, who are not able to attend school for medical reasons. We teach at the Children’s Ward at the Whittington Hospital, in the homes of pupils too unwell to attend school and in a classroom at the Elthorne Road site of New River College. The post holder will be required to teach the core subjects and humanities across all key stages.

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.
