Be part of an exciting and creative school in Nuneaton for children and young people with autism and/or social, emotional and mental health needs.
Discovery Academy is a new setting in Nuneaton catering for children with an autism diagnosis and / or an underlying condition that has enabled them to receive an EHC plan for ASC or SEMH. We started 40% over numbers and due to increased student applications need to build capacity in the teaching team.
MacIntyre Academies is sponsored by MacIntyre Charity, which over the last 50 years, has developed a strong reputation nationally, as a high quality, person centred organisation.
You will be responsible for leading our teaching and learning in English, working alongside our class teachers and Literacy Interventionist. We need someone to develop our KS4 and KS5 provision. If you have Autism, BESD or AP experience that will be an advantage but not required.
You will be an innovative classroom practitioner, hold QTS and have demonstrable experience of implementing the national curriculum. In our opening year we focused on Key Stages 2 and 3 before now expanding into Key Stages 4 and 5.
You will be able to implement strategies for raising achievement across the curriculum and be committed to your further professional development. You will be confident and happy to work with KS4 and 5 and must be able to offer GCSE English language and Literature as well as entry level and functional courses. Experience in alternative accreditation such as ASDAN is an advantage.
Discovery Academy is well staffed and committed to the professional development of all; roles can be tailored to allow strengths to be shown as well as areas for development or professional interest to be experienced and understood.
This role is offered on a permanent full time basis but if you are interested in 3 or 4 days, particularly in 2017-18 then this can be negotiated.
