We require a creative HLTA at Springwell Harrogate who is passionate about providing the best possible education and care for vulnerable students. As we are a nurture based provision we follow a primary based model and post holders would spend the majority of their time working as a consistent tutor with our small student population You would lead on areas such as personal development and teach STEM focused lessons, with an emphasis on science and maths.

This role will suit an individual with a passion for innovative approaches to learning, with experience in mainstream secondary or Key stage 2, wanting to gain experience in a new setting. This is an exciting opportunity to get back to teaching children and play a significant part of their overall development. This could be a great opportunity to take full pastoral responsibility for a small group(s) as a stepping stone into teaching. We would provide full training to staff to support them in either of these areas.

This position would suit a candidate with a proven track record of being an advocate and supporting the learning of vulnerable pupils with social, emotional and mental health difficulties (SEMH). It would suit an individual who is passionate about making a real difference to student’s life chances and supporting them in achieving their potential in essential life skills, which is a high priority for Springwell Harrogate.
