This academy provides a safe and nurturing environment for over 200 primary & secondary age students who have been unable to sustain a place in mainstream education. By prioritising academic achievement and introducing behaviour interventions and therapeutic support where necessary, it will enable them to re-integrate at the same key stage as their peers, and go on to access opportunities into employment and further education.

You will also spend time supporting small groups of young people so the ability to adapt & communicate well is essential for this role.

Because of the unfortunate experiences these young people have faced in the early stages of their lives, it is crucial that you can show empathy, have a passion for supporting those from diverse backgrounds and to have a good understanding of EBD.
