Required for September 2021.

Studio West is an exciting studio school, which opened in September 2014. As part of Kenton School’s Academy Trust, Studio West cater for around 400 students aged between 11 and 19 with student numbers increasing year on year. We are expected to reach 650 at full capacity. Rated “Good” by Ofsted, Studio West offers students an innovative and bespoke curriculum with an emphasis on employability and life skills. We have close working relationships with our business partners and our mission is to make sure that every student who leaves Studio West, does so with a university place, an apprenticeship or employment.

Due to our expansion, we are delighted to be introducing this new post to our team. Our Business Engagement Assistant will work with the team Manager to promote a culture of work related learning which complements all students’ study of the national curriculum. The postholder will actively secure paid and unpaid work placements for all our students matched to their academic programme and which will contribute to the project based learning culture of the School. The role will also involve working closely with curriculum teams to ensure that curriculum design is closely aligned to employer and student need; fostering the development of high quality business skills in all students, arranging for business partners to deliver regular sessions to students and personally designing and delivering business and careers related sessions to students.

We are seeking an exceptional candidate with a proven track record of working effectively with secondary school age children/young people. A candidate who possesses both excellent interpersonal skills and a proactive and flexible approach to work. And most importantly a candidate who has the skills, knowledge and abilities to work with students and businesses to make sure the right student is matched with the right business.

If you have commitment, interpersonal skills and resilience to motivate, challenge and inspire students to achieve their potential regardless of the barriers they face, we want to hear from you. In return, we offer fantastic developmental possibilities due to working as part of Kenton Schools Academy Trust, and our forward thinking management and staff working together to offer the best available chances for our students.
