Grade/Scale: MPS/UPS +SEN1 Actual Salary £30,000 to £46,525 +£2,539
Start date: September 2024
Contract: Permanent, Full time

We are looking to recruit an experienced and inspiring teacher to join our academy to teach science to pupils in KS3 and Biology to pupils in KS4. The staffing teams are small compared to mainstream schools and the post will suit a teacher who will take ownership of their subject and is willing to be flexible to meet the needs of the pupils and the academy. The Hasland site has approximately 120 on roll that are not all on site at the same time and classes sizes are small with around 10 pupils. You will be an allocated form tutor.
We are rapidly expanding and increasing pupil capacity; hence we are acquiring an additional site. We hope to be ready to open this site summer or September 2024. This site will also offer education to pupils in KS3 and 4 and will be based in the Chesterfield/surrounding area. The ability to teach a second subject would be beneficial. It would be very useful if candidates had experience of teaching other subjects such as maths or Duke of Edinburgh. It is likely that successful candidates may be timetabled to also teach Duke of Edinburgh.

We welcome applications from candidates who are able to teach engaging and inspiring lessons to challenging and disengaged KS3 and 4 pupils. Applicants should have good knowledge and experience of working with disaffected pupils in a school or other alternative setting. An affinity for pupils with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties is an essential quality for this challenging but rewarding opportunity. Applicants should be resilient, have high expectations, and a sense of humour. You must be able to build positive relationships with our pupils and think outside of the box. You will be responsible for contributing to a small staffing team to ensure that the site runs smoothly. A growth mindset and positive ethos are essential characteristics that we are looking for.

An allocated base will be named for payment of mileage and any travel calculation between sites for CPD or for engaging in off -site rewards trips etc. Candidates must have access to a vehicle and car insurance with business use included.

Benefits include: Teachers’ Pension Scheme, Westfield Health membership, academy laptop.
