Are you a passionate, dedicated English Teacher? Do you aspire to create and develop an inspirational curriculum? Are you committed to improving the lives of children and young people?

We are looking for a skilled English Teacher to join our fantastic team at Parkview Academy. You will take a creative approach to teaching students according to their educational needs, ensuring delivery of the school curriculum in a way that maximises children’s achievement and ability to develop.

This is a great opportunity for a dedicated Teacher who wants to spend less time on paperwork and more time developing creative learning opportunities for children with varied and complex needs. Your work will be challenging and rewarding in equal measure, and you will be working in a school where we maintain a strong safeguarding culture, where students are listened to, respected, and involved in as many decisions as possible.

We are looking for a passionate English Teacher, experienced in teaching SEN children, who shares our vision to build incredible futures by empowering vulnerable young people, to be happy and to make their way in the world.

Whilst previous experience of working in an SEN environment would be desirable, excellent teaching skills and the right motivation, personal qualities and levels of resilience are just as important.

Educated to Qualified Teacher Status or Degree Level, you will be calm, engaging, resilient, and have an innovative style of teaching, motivated by helping every child to reach their potential.
