We are working with a specialist provision who have a number of Pupils using an adapted curriculum which aims to engage them to attend School and take part in lessons. The provision are seeking Teachers who have a nurturing presence and understand that Pupils are often using “learned behaviours” which is the underlying cause to their behaviour issues. A small number of Pupils have a diagnosed Learning Disability, they are with the provision because they were unable to manage certain aspects of mainstream School life.

The provision require Teachers to join them, who are able to plan and deliver lessons around the alternative curriculum. If you have ever worked with an alternative curriculum and used various teaching methods to inspire Pupils to learn, please get in touch. Lessons are not undertaken in a traditional classroom format. New Directions will also support your development within the post by offering you free training in behaviour management and the Team Teach intervention programme.
