Thinking of a role to further your teaching career? 

Are you ready for a new challenge?

New River College Medical can provide both.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a dedicated teacher of Science who is looking for a new challenge and has a flexible approach, to join a committed team at New River College. In addition, there is the potential for the right candidate to be Head of Department.

The post holder will need to be a confident and effective teacher who can deliver exciting and fun lessons. We are looking for a teacher who relishes a challenge, who wants to try new ideas and who genuinely wants to contribute to the lives of young people with drive and passion.

NRC Medical staff work with KS1-4 pupils, who are not able to attend school for medical reasons. We teach at the Children’s Ward at the Whittington Hospital, in the homes of pupils too unwell to attend school and in a classroom at the Elthorne Road site of New  River College. The post holder will be required to teach the core subjects and humanities across all key stages. Many of our pupils are below national age related literacy and numeracy levels when they arrive. Ability to engage children with SEMH is more important than the phase you are used to teaching so both primary and secondary trained teachers are encouraged to apply.

New River College comprises of three pupil referral units in Islington (primary, secondary and medical), for pupils with Social, Emotional and Mental Health challenges (SEMH). We teach children and young people aged five to sixteen years old who have been permanently excluded or participate in our preventative programmes to address their behaviour, and children and young people with complex SEMH or medical needs.
