Based at Goldwyn Plus

Goldwyn School is seeking to appoint an innovative and passionate, highly motivated and flexible Teacher to deliver KS3/KS4 Physical Education to students on our Goldwyn Plus pathway.  The successful candidate will be based at our Goldwyn Plus centre in Beaver Lane, Ashford. 

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced teacher, with a range of skills and subject knowledge, with a flexible approach and with the drive and passion to make a difference to students who are likely to have experienced little previous success within a school environment.  

We are looking for someone to bring something new and exciting to our small and professional team. 

The role could suit someone with either secondary or primary experience. 

Goldwyn Plus is part of the Goldwyn School group offering students bespoke packages of education, training, and pastoral support. We endeavour to create a challenging and inspiring learning environment where staff work together to encourage all students to reach their full potential. 

Goldwyn Plus has been established to provide individualised education and alternative pathways for students with SEN/EHCPs who have found other school options difficult and have become disengaged. 

Working with students who display challenging behaviour, exceptional behaviour management skills are a must. The successful candidate will be expected to teach another subject; experience of teaching either science or geography would be an advantage. 

If you require any further information, please contact Mrs Chrissie Drew, Head of Centre:   01233 664933 or email Chrissie.drew@goldwyn.kent.sch.uk


Closing Date: Thursday 7 February 2019 (midday)

Goldwyn School is committed to the highest standards in safeguarding procedures and promoting the welfare of every student and we expect all our staff and volunteers to share this commitment
