Due to the retirement of the present post holder, an exciting opportunity has arisen to work within Park View School in their purpose-built Centre in Jarrow. The Centre has been open since September 2019. The Centre caters for students from South Tyneside and other local authorities who have been identified by their parent schools as vocational learners and could also have identified with special educational needs (SEN).

You will lead an academic programme(s) taking responsibility for the experience of all learners enrolled. Ensuring the curriculum is aligned to awarding body requirements and that teaching, learning and assessment strategies used promote a high-quality learning experience and facilitate learner progress leading to high levels of retention, achievement and progression.

You will liaise with local businesses/enterprises and post-16 providers to ensure the skills being taught are relevant to the local labour demand and promote positive pathways into further training and employment.
