The Education Department within the Good Shepherd Secure / Close Support Unit is a co-educational establishment which caters for up to 29 young people. We respond to the immediate challenge of re-engaging young people in the learning process.
We are committed to ensuring all our young people receive their full curriculum entitlements. We have a focus on Literacy, Numeracy, Health & Wellbeing and Skills for Learning, Life & Work. We endeavour to ensure our curriculum offers scope for our young people to extend their learning beyond subject areas through vocational and interdisciplinary work and learning across a broad range of contexts.
The centre adheres to the concept of a 24 hour curriculum within which young people can gain recognition for achievements within and out with the school day. As a result we are able to offer our young people achievement opportunities within the Broad General Education and the Senior Phase curriculum, as well as through wider achievement awards such as the Duke of Edinburgh and vocational subjects.
We are looking for enthusiastic, self-motivated and hard-working teachers, who have a genuine passion for working with young people. We are a strong, supportive staff team, committed to high standards of delivery. For more details on the role please click here to view the job description.
