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 Stockport, we provide bespoke spaces that are perfect for working with small groups. Our large playground at the back of the school allows us to focus on sports in PE as well as enrichment sessions. The team is dedicated to supporting students through to Year 11 and on to their next steps beyond this. We work closely with social care, parents, and carers to signpost the best route forwards. Through our extensive partner network, we also give students the opportunity to work with outside agencies who provide an insight into various careers for students.
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:
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:
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.
Further Benefits Include:
We would love to hear from applicants who are passionate about working with young people who need support for their positive change and lead a team of peers with the same mindset.
