Inner London Teacher Pay Scale plus SEN allowance of £2,539


London East Alternative Provision (LEAP) is a highly-successful, high-achieving, inner-city school, delivering transformative education to young people of all ages from Primary through to post-16.

We currently provide an alternative education to around 275 students across the full age range, from Primary to Post-16, across three separate sites in Tower Hamlets.

This is a particularly exciting time to be joining our team, as we increase the number of our provisions across the borough of Tower Hamlets by opening our new satellite centre in the heart of the Isle of Dogs, near Canary Wharf, and expand our already highly committed team of teachers and support staff.

Applications are invited from talented, hard-working and motivated individuals for the post of Citizenship & PSHE teacher at LEAP.  This involves delivering engaging and exciting lessons in our new KS4 centre on the Isle of Dogs in London.

Our students need much more than excellent classroom practitioners with good subject knowledge: they need someone with experience of and a preference for working with hard to reach, often vulnerable children.

They need teachers who will care about their progress, practitioners who are able to support them with their personal development and wellbeing through education. The successful applicant will be able to demonstrate a strong commitment to the LEAP aims, values and ethos and a proven track record of delivering excellent outcomes for students, including those with complex behavioural and SEND needs.

We are looking for a dynamic and committed specialist with an in-depth understanding of all aspects of the GCSE Citizenship and PSHE curriculum.  Both Citizenship and PSHE are core subjects at LEAP, but only Citizenship leads to a GCSE qualification.

The ideal candidate will have proven academic knowledge of as well as passion for both subjects and a talent for engaging students’ interest and involvement in their study, particularly as PSHE is such an important subject for our students who need much support when it comes to RSE, Career Support and how best to manage relationships and their own mental and physical wellbeing.

If supporting struggling young people, with plenty of scope for getting to know all your students really well and having productive and positive relationships with them sounds like you, then we would very much welcome your application.

If that sounds like you then we would very much like you to apply.
