Teacher and Teaching Assistant Opportunities – Wakefield
Are you an outstanding teacher / teaching assistant who feels stifled by the mainstream system?
Are you an exceptional, creative practitioner or assistant who really wants to make a difference every day to the lives of the most vulnerable children
All the children at our partner school have “failed in” or been “failed by” education system who didn’t understand their needs at the time. The purpose of our school is to rebuild damaged personalities with education and academic achievement being the means to this end rather than the end itself.
Unlike a mainstream school, success is not judged by examination results. More importantly, your success as a teacher should be judged by your contribution to our pupils developing a sense of wholeness, a positive self-image and making progress in overcoming their particular difficulties.
A successful team member will be:
• A team worker, supportive and encouraging to colleagues
• Child Focused
• Emotionally robust
• Thoroughly professional and someone who is not seeking to have unfulfilled personal and emotional needs satisfied through relationships with young people in school.
• Someone who can take direction in a crisis situation from the person taking the lead in responding to that event.
• Recognises his or her own limitations of knowledge and experience and seeks the support or involvement of others when necessary.
Justteachers is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS check is required for all successful candidates.
