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 a robust academic suite of qualifications ranging from A Level to GCSE; we also offer specialist occupational and professional qualifications.

All students benefit from an innovative and bespoke curriculum with substantial emphasis on developing key employability and life skills that will see them through to HE, FE and employment. Much of our curriculum is delivered through Project Based Learning where ‘learning connects’ in a very real sense. 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 the ongoing expansion and success of the school, we are seeking applicants for some new roles to the school to work with individual students or small groups with a wide range of special educational needs. Working with our SEND Co-ordinator, Learning Coaches and Personal Coaches, the role involves delivering interventions and in-class support to help students access their lessons and embed their learning.

We are looking for candidates with previous experience working with children and/or young people, preferably within an education setting, combined with a minimum of a level 2 qualification (GCSE) in English and Mathematics. Previous experience working with children with special educational needs or social, emotional and mental health issues would be advantage.

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.

To apply, please complete the online form via www.tes.com/jobs/ selecting ‘Quick Apply’ or download an application form from our website www.studiowestnewcastle.com and return it to human.resources@kenton.newcastle.sch.uk.

Closing date: 12.00 Noon on 11 June 2021.

Kenton Schools Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people in all its schools and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
