Are you a qualified teacher motivated to make a difference in children's lives? Does working with at-risk youth sound like the career for you? Can you find different and engaging ways to teach children who are not accessing mainstream education? Yes? Then read on, as this may be the career for you!

A welcoming, friendly and inclusive specialist provision in Bradford is looking for a teacher to teach one of their KS1/2 mixed classes.

The successful candidate will have primary school teaching experience and the ability to manage challenging behaviour while successfully engaging the children.

Within the class, you will have support from a Teaching Assistant, as well as a variety of support staff around the school. This school is looking for a patient, caring teacher to work successfully with the children and build positive relationships towards learning and education, with the aim of steering the children back into mainstream schools when they are ready. This is a long term contract until the end of the academic year, with the potential to become permanent.
