North West Kent Alternative Provision Service is looking to appoint an exceptional teacher. We are seeking to employ teachers who have the passion to make a difference to the education of young people in the North of Kent.

New premises and the further broadening of our curriculum has resulted in new teaching vacancies.

The ideal candidates will have experience working as a teacher in either mainstream school, SEN or Alternative Curriculum provisions. Applicants from a Primary School teaching background will be equally considered.

At the forefront of our criteria are the ability to be positive, a can-do attitude, a resilient personality and a creative and flexible approach to teaching that builds success through challenge, personalisation and innovation.

NWKAPS offers excellent professional development opportunities therefore we welcome the opportunity to upskill the right candidates in areas which require further development to create excellent teaching practitioners for our SEMH school.

NWKAPS has been on an exciting journey and now boasts a staff team of dedicated leaders and teaching professionals who have the skill-set and enthusiasm to ensure that the quality of education provision offered by the services reaches excellence.

We now boast a breadth of teaching expertise which includes subject specialists and those with the ability to teach with a discreet focus upon well-being and cognitive and social/emotional development. Part of our crucial role is to ensure that our students develop in to confident young people, master strategies and improve their emotional well-being before continuing to their chosen destination.

We pride ourselves in offering bespoke curriculum pathways for students who have disengaged from mainstream education and are selected as more suitable for destination based learning in small class sizes.
