Inspire their remarkable with us

The Ridge is a very special learning community. We provide a “fresh start” for children with Social, Emotional and Mental Health problems (SEMH).  The curriculum is designed to support children in becoming confident and independent learners in a rapidly changing world.

We are looking to appoint a Learning and Therapeutic Partner to support children with social, emotional and mental health needs. You will be working in a small class under the supervision of a teacher and occasionally on a one to one basis. The ideal candidate will be a team player who is able to support firm and consistent boundaries, remaining calm when faced with diverse situations and ideally have experience working within a special needs or primary setting.

We warmly welcome visits so you can see all we offer in person.  Please contact us on 01242 512680 to arrange a time to visit and ask for Peter Hales.

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 57 academies and thousands of education professionals.       
  • More technology so you can make more impact - Google Workspace Enterprise 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.
