The Hope Service currently has a wonderful opportunity for a dynamic, forward-thinking Teacher to work in a multi-agency setting which aims to enhance and improve the lives of the young people. We offer numerous development opportunities including training in therapeutic models and delivering parent and carers support and information groups.
The Hope Service is a multi-disciplinary service for young people aged 11-18 who are experiencing complex mental health, emotional, social and behavioural needs which could cause a placement breakdown or may require a Tier 4 hospital admission. These needs cannot be met by one agency alone. It is a joint partnership between Health Services, Children's Services and Education working together to provide support to young people in the community and through day programme provision.
The Hope Service received an Outstanding grade in the last Ofsted inspection.

It is flexible to ensure that it meets individual needs in a safe, supportive and therapeutic environment. In addition to education, there is a focus on individual and group therapy, art therapy, drama therapy, psychology, cognitive behavioural therapy, anger and anxiety management, assertiveness training and practical social and living skills.
