Pioneer is a very successful special school providing for children and young people between the ages of 3 to 19 with Severe and Complex Learning Difficulties.  We have purpose built facilities and an opportunity has arisen to join our team in this exciting environment.

Do you have experience of working with children or young adults with SEN? 

Do you enjoy working creatively as part of a team, to achieve success for young people?

Are you able to work independently and with flexibility of hours?

Are you a good communicator, sensitive to the needs of children and families?  

We are looking to appoint a Keyworker who will be responsible for supporting young children with severe and complex needs.  This is an exciting opportunity to join our school based team to provide innovative support across school, community and home settings for young people with special needs.  The successful candidate will ideally have a first degree but should, as a minimum, have a relevant NNEB, BTEC, NVQ 2/3 qualification or equivalent.  Access to transport or a driver and car is essential for this role.

We passionately believe that every child can discover their own remarkable life. It’s what motivates us around here. We know this vision requires something extra. Which is why at AET, you’ll find more. More opportunities, so you can forge your own path. More care and support, so you can prioritise what matters most. More purpose, for you and for the children we’re inspiring.

We offer: 

  • More opportunity to grow your career - We’ll support you in developing your career and experience at this school or another AET school. 
  • More tailored support - We understand every academy is unique. We’ll give you tailored support and flexibility, allowing you to do what’s best for your children. 
  • More chance to see what’s out there - We create opportunities for teachers to visit other AET academies and learn from outside experience. 
  • More like minded colleagues, so you can benefit from others’ experience - You’re connected to our network of 58 academies and thousands of education professionals. 
  • More technology so you can make more impact - G Suite for Education embedded throughout. Collaborative cloud technology gives you access to the latest tools, when and where it suits you. More tech enabled classrooms mean less time spent on admin and more time teaching. 
  • More time - We strive to minimise unnecessary distractions so you can have energy for your job, and your life.
