Haybrook College Trust educates young people aged 11 to 19 who have challenging and complex Social, Emotional, and Mental Health difficulties (SEMH) or medical needs.
Springboard is a KS4 Alternative Provision within Haybrook College which provides a range of high quality educational programmes, helping to make positive changes in the lives of young people and ensuring the best possible educational outcomes. The provision educates up to 40 students who have been permanently excluded or at high risk of exclusion from local mainstream schools.
We require an inspirational leader to become Manager of Springboard and support the Senior Leadership Team to develop the provision by ensuring every young person can be a success. The ideal candidate will have a proven track record in leadership with an intuitive understanding of complex young people, their needs and how best to support them. The role will include ensuring the smooth day to day management of the centre and also play an important role in leading the future development and expansion of the College.
The successful post holder will lead and manage a staff team of up to 25 and be an expert in Teaching and Learning to raise standards of learner achievement across the curriculum. They will also ensure that the provision offers a broad, balanced, relevant, motivating and differentiated curriculum for all learners as well as monitoring learner attendance and ensuring that behaviour management systems and procedures are in place, monitored and consistently adhered to. The post holder will naturally fit into the wider ethos of Haybrook College and bring positivity, creativity, enthusiasm and innovation to the staff, whilst being kind, patient, caring and forgiving to the learners.
At Haybrook College we feel passionately that education can change a young person’s life chances and would like to work with a leader that demonstrates the same qualities. If you’re ready to take up this challenge and change lives you must be a qualified teacher with proven experience of middle/senior leadership and experience of working effectively with children who have Social Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties, either in a special school, PRU, alternative education provision or within a mainstream setting.
