Can you demonstrate a clear passion for learning?
Are you looking for an exciting, new teaching opportunity?
Do you want to build relationships with a diverse group of young people?
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a teacher or tutor to join one of the leading Alternative Education Schools within Progress.
At Progress Schools Carlisle, we provide a huge range of learning spaces for small groups to work with a teacher and learning support mentor. The creative curriculum focuses on the acquisition of skills and qualifications to support a successful progression beyond Year 11. We also work closely to develop our students’ interpersonal skills so that they can break down their learning barriers.
After students have left us, we continue to support them with their next steps.
In each Progress School, there is an average of 30-55 pupils on roll which allows us to create a nurturing and encouraging environment for the students. As a tutor or teacher, you must have experience in a secondary setting, whether that be mainstream or an alternative provision. It is crucial that you can use your passion for education to foster a love of learning and provide our young people with a stimulating environment where they can learn and flourish.
Requirements before applying to the role:
Teachers – to hold, or be willing to work towards, QTS/QTLS
Tutors – to have a degree or equivalent and be willing to work towards a teaching qualification.
Proven track record of raising attainment, supporting behavioural challenges and demonstrating pastoral care.
You will be an integral part of developing the work of Progress Schools and giving pupils the chance to either return back into mainstream schools or prepare for the next steps in their journey, whether that be to college, an apprenticeship or a different Post-16 pathway. If successfully appointed, you would be responsible for teaching a range of subjects to students throughout the school. Due to the diversity of the education that you will provide, we do not require a subject specialism. However, the successful candidate must be able to adapt and differentiate learning to meet the needs of all learners, who will have a range of abilities.
Expectations within the role:
Identify clear teaching objectives and set tasks which challenge students and ensure high levels of interest.
Contribute to schemes of work that engage pupils who may have various barriers to learning.
Develop individual learning plans which identify clear targets and success criteria.
Maintain discipline in accordance with the school’s procedures.
Encourage punctuality, positive behaviour and high standards of class and homework.
Promote the values and achievements of the school to the community.
Demonstrate and follow the company policies.
Here at Progress, we are passionate about developing our staff as well as our students. Throughout your time with us, you will be fully supported with a range of CPD, career progression and in house training, which includes paid qualifications. This goes alongside numerous other benefits such as a pension scheme and parental leave.
