Excel and Exceed Centre is the education provision within Cygnet Hospital Bury, a Tier 4 CAMHS unit.
There are 42 beds for adolescents admitted to the hospital, offering individualised care for young people aged between 12 and 19 who are experiencing a mental health crisis or whose needs mean they cannot be supported in community settings.
The diverse educational programme offered by Excel and Exceed Centre means that young people can continue their education at the same time as receiving treatment. The safe, educational and therapeutic environment offered by all services provided by the hospital, including Excel and Exceed Centre focuses on helping the young person stabilise so that hospital treatment is no longer required.
Teaching at Excel and Exceed Centre happens within a well-resourced school unit, comprising of four separate classrooms. Excel and Exceed Centre had its first Ofsted inspection in June 2017, in which the school received a ‘good’ rating, with the inspector commenting:
“The school’s caring culture is echoed by all. Teams of skilled and committed education and hospital staff work collaboratively to support pupils. This strong partnership ensures that pupils make a good recovery.”
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.
High expectations of what students can achieve, effective communications with schools and good quality teaching ensure that students continue to make academic progress during their stay in hospital.
Excel and Exceed Centre would like to appoint an outstanding qualified teacher of Science to cover maternity leave, who can inspire and motivate students, effectively personalise learning and contribute to a consistent, positive environment. Providing evidence of student progress is an important element of the role. Additional duties include attending multidisciplinary meetings and progress report writing.
This is a part time role, working on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8.30am until 5.00pm.
For the right individual this will be a unique and rewarding position within a forward thinking department and an opportunity to work within a specialist field. If you have the skills and experience we require and you are looking for a new challenge please request an application form today.
