Do you have a passion for making a difference to children and young people’s lives and improving their outcomes?

Do you have the relevant experience and skills to work directly with children and young people who, for diverse reasons, are unable to attend mainstream school and motivate and engage them in their learning?

RISE Alternative Learning Provision works with schools and alternative providers to support children and young people who are at significant risk of exclusion or, who are unable to attend school owing to exclusion or medical needs, including mental health.

We are seeking an exceptional teacher who can work within the RISE Alternative Learning Provision Team and inspire children and young people to re-engage with their learning and, either successfully return to mainstream school or an alternative setting. We have ambitious expectations for our young people who, for various reasons, access our service and recognise how essential high quality teaching and learning is to improve their life chances. Many of the young people we engage with have had gaps in their learning, have lost confidence in their ability to succeed and struggle to engage. We are committed to raising achievement and closing the gap and increasing their resilience and self-confidence. This post will play an essential role in supporting this ambition.

You will have considerable experience and understanding of children and young people who may have additional needs and difficulties that prevents positive access to their learning. You will be an experienced teacher with proven ability to work with children and young people at different ages and stages to achieve successful outcomes. You will be able to swiftly build positive relationships and gain the trust and confidence of the young person so that they get back on track with their learning. We are seeking someone who works well within a team, is well organised and efficient. You will also need to be solution focused, flexible and have a good sense of humour.

If you think you are the right person for this post, then we would like to hear from you. To join the team, you will need proven experience of safeguarding children/young people along with a successful track record of skills, knowledge and experience of improving the outcomes of children and young people.

The daily use of a car for business use is essential and the post will be divided between the RISE office, alternative provision settings and, at times, in the home.

If you need further information about the role or the service, please contact Heather Clapp (Interim Strategic Lead for Alternative Provision) on 07969 503243 and leave a message with your name and number. Alternatively, email
