About the role
You will work as part of an experienced team of Advisers and Behaviour and Attendance Practitioners, to support both Secondary and Primary schools in meeting the needs of learners exhibiting difficult or dangerous behaviour. As part of this role you will meet with school staff, senior leaders, and families; carry out observations of young people; and write reports with clear strategies and outcomes based on analysis to improve learning, prosocial behaviour and increase expertise in schools.
During your time as a qualified teacher, you will have demonstrated outstanding classroom practice, particularly in relation to identifying and overcoming barriers to learning, and successful behaviour management skills. You will have a strong inclusive ethos, a desire to see improved outcomes for young people, and a genuine interest in supporting staff to develop inclusive practice in their schools. You will also have experience of teaching children with SEN and be confident to identify unmet needs and how to support identified needs.
The post is varied as our service offers bespoke packages to meet a school’s individual needs, including group and whole school training where requested. You will have the opportunity to promote good practice and develop relationships with locality schools through Behaviour and Attendance Partnerships.
