Teacher of Computing & Creative Media
We require a dynamic, motivated, pro-active and well-organised individual who has the ability and skills to successfully work as part of a multidisciplinary team, teaching Computing and Creative Media to students in our HEART department with the possibility of some teaching in the main school.
HEART, our Health, Education, Assessment and Revitalising Therapy department, was redefined in September 2016 in a response to meet an ever-increasing need from Local Authorities to find school placements for youngsters with mental health difficulties. It now comprises 30 very vulnerable students (from Years 9 - 15), who, whilst generally academically very able, cannot cope with pressure so need gentle encouragement in order to achieve their educational potential. You will be expected to collaborate closely with teachers, therapists and key workers and be flexible in your approach.
