An opportunity to join our exciting provision
The Trust is the incorporation of the School Behaviour and Attendance Partnership (SBAP) in North Ashfield. To date, the partnership between Ashfield School, Kirkby College, Quarrydale Academy and Sutton Community Academy has been extremely effective in lowering permanent exclusion rates and supporting young people at risk of permanent exclusion. However, our work isn’t exclusively about behaviour; we support students from a variety of backgrounds, and with a wide range of issues that often make access to mainstream education a challenging prospect.
The partnership established the highly successful SPACE Learning Centre almost six years ago, providing intervention and alternative education in North Ashfield. Year on year the partnership has grown, as the demand for support from schools has increased. This role has been created to support that growth, and to provide fresh insight and ideas to our education programmes.
