You are more than an outstanding teaching practitioner. You believe that every young person deserves the best education, know what it takes to lead and inspire a multidisciplinary team, and care passionately about influencing best practice in challenging and rapidly changing environment.
So where better to take your career forward than Priory Education and Care Services?
We are the UK’s leading independent provider of quality care and education solutions for some of our society’s most vulnerable young people. Having recently acquired another specialist children’s homes provider, we are now developing additional Educational Units that work in tandem with the homes to offer holistic and carefully coordinated educational and care packages for every young person. You will help drive the success of this initiative in Shropshire and Leicestershire.
This is a challenge of significant variety, challenge and influence. You will be responsible for the day-to-day operation of educational units, using your expertise to monitor and evaluate performance as well as manage teaching resources for maximum impact. In addition to leading a team of classroom teachers and educational support workers, for example, you will liaise closely with children’s home managers, therapists and support teams to ensure high quality outcomes for every young person. We will also rely on you implement policies and procedures, develop robust reporting mechanisms, and explore ways of enhancing the teaching environment. Staying abreast of developments relating to the National Curriculum will, of course, be essential.
Along with relevant teaching qualifications, you will need a strong track record in supporting young people with special educational and care needs. Excellent people management and motivational skills are essential, and you will know how to deploy resources and build strong working relationships with colleagues, support staff, parents and external agencies. As you might expect, this role also calls for exceptional communication and interpersonal skills as well as emotional and physical resilience.
In return, you will enjoy ongoing professional development, attractive rewards, a vibrant network of colleagues and the opportunity to make a real difference to our service and its impact on the lives of young people.
