iCollege provides education for learners who have struggled to access mainstream education and might have diagnosed or undiagnosed SEMH needs.
The equivalent of 1FTE teacher is required to lead classes of up to 6 learners within Key Stage 2 or 3 depending upon experience and skills.
All learners follow the National Curriculum appropriate to their Key Stage, differentiated and adapted to meet their SEMH needs. All learners have an EHCP and are placed by the LA, and may have additional SEND including ASD and ADHD. Many have had significant disruption to their education and consequently do not always present ‘pro-social’ behaviours.
Two FTE teachers are required for iCollege KS3 and 4 provision, core or foundation subjects with flexibility for full or part-time positions.
All successful applicants will work as part of a strong team of teachers and support staff. Applicants need to be highly motivated, innovative, enthusiastic, flexible, resilient, practical and resourceful as well as being able to support learners who can sometimes become emotionally dis-regulated.
iCollege applies the Therapeutic Thinking Approach so an understanding of, or willingness to learn this approach is essential. These are rewarding but challenging roles physically and emotionally, and to support this, we offer an experienced leadership team as well as ongoing training.
Applicants must have a driving licence with access to a vehicle with business insurance and must be prepared to transport learners.
Staff may be asked to work at other iCollege sites across Newbury, Calcot and Thatcham depending on learner numbers and needs.
Closing date: Thursday 17th June 202.
Interviews: Format to be agreed. 24th–30th June 2021.
