Applicants will be highly motivated and have a passion to ensure that our learners achieve the very best that they can at all times.  The core purpose of the role will be to uphold the fundamental standards of pride, respect and achievement with all learners but also ensure that all students receive the highest standard of bespoke support.

Here at Burnside Business and Enterprise College, we put teaching and learning first and are committed to providing a high quality and inclusive learning experience for all.  Furthermore, we are committed to the development of staff and you will be joining a supportive school with an excellent environment in which to continue your professional development.

In this role you will be teaching students who have not achieved secondary ready level and will have a particular focus on developing knowledge, skills, confidence and engagement.

This post would suit an excellent classroom practitioner who has a passion for teaching and learning and is looking for a new challenge.
