The Knole Development Centre is an educational provision within Cygnet Hospital Godden Green near Sevenoaks in Kent.
The service has 24 inpatient placements linked to our Tier 4 CAMHS inpatient service and provides an education programme for 12-18 year olds experiencing mental health issues as part of a therapeutic timetable.
We wish to recruit a qualified sessional teacher (or NQT) of Science (Biology, Chemistry or Physics) who can inspire and motivate students, effectively personalise learning and contribute to a consistent, positive environment.
The successful candidate will be responsible for teaching on a small group basis, designing and implementing a learning programme for each student, establishing coherent academic plans, recording achievement and liaising with other teachers to plan and organise teaching. Providing evidence of student progress is an important element of the role. Additional duties include attending multidisciplinary meetings and progress report writing.
For the right individual, we can offer some flexibility on term-time (38 weeks pa) or full-time (52 weeks pa with 5 weeks paid holiday).
Cygnet Health care is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening, including reference checks with previous employers and Disclosure and Barring Service check.
