Do you have a can-do attitude?  Are you passionate about improving the life chances and outcomes of children? 

We have two SEND schools catering for pupils aged 9 - 19. Our schools are based in Ashford and Cranbrook and are calm and orderly. Our ethos is to improve the outcomes for children irrespective of the obstacles faced. We work with rigour, pace and passion to ensure our pupils achieve the best possible outcomes. In addition to academic outcomes we also embrace vocational outcomes and strive to provide our pupils with the self-confidence to move to a position of independence and fulfilment.

We are expanding and are therefore regularly seeking progress and engagement guides to support pupils with learning and to enhance wellbeing.  You may be required to work across both school sites therefore a driving licence is essential.   You will be confident with working with 2 or 3 pupils at a time to deliver intervention sessions and will have experience of working with SEND.  

Do you share our determination to improve the outcomes for pupils?  Can you make a positive difference to the lives of our pupils?  If so, we would love to hear from you.

We offer a nurturing and supporting staff team with excellent CPD and progression opportunities.

Applications are welcomed from suitable candidates.
