Can you make a difference to a child’s education?
Belmont School is an independent SEMH school for boys aged 5 to 18 and is part of the Acorn Care and Education Group which has nine similar schools across the country. Our Victorian school building has been completely refurbished to provide modern classrooms, plus specialist rooms and a fantastic off site Vocational Unit.
Instructor and Assessor in the Building and Construction Department.
Salary: £22,000 to £26,000 depending on experience and qualifications.
We are looking for an Instructor to work in partnership with the Vocational Coordinator and the partner college to ensure that all learners have high quality learning experiences and are supported to reach their full potentials. The successful candidate will assess and internally verify pupil work and ensure the smooth running of the vocational department and its resources within the Building and Construction Course at Belmont School.
You will ensure the needs of SEN pupils are met and ensure the schools strong behaviour structure is fully implemented. The Vocational Instructor is responsible for planning daily sessions to ensure the smooth running of the course, developing new ideas and strategies to ensure all learners are fully engaged with the course.
Please note-This post would be suitable for a someone who has extensive knowledge and experience of working in the construction industry. Experience of working with young people is not essential as full training will be provided. A keen attitude and a willingness to learn is much more relevant to this role.
You will be motivated by your belief that every child can achieve and reach their potential. Whilst previous experience of working in an SEN environment would be desirable, the right motivation, personal qualities and levels of resilience are just as important. The successful candidate does not need to be a qualified teacher but will be required to qualify for their TAQA Level 3 Assessor qualification if they don't already hold it.
If you are looking to join a dedicated team in a school that will welcome your ideas, we want to hear from you.
