SEMH Teacher

This vacancy has now expired.

Job description

  • CPD training available to help prepare you for this role
  • Excellent and competitive rates of pay
  • The opportunity to help students with additional educational needs get back in to mainstream education

Teaching Personnel are anticipating an influx of staffing requests from our Schools for the new academic year. We are currently looking for a fully qualified teacher who would be available on a part time or full time basis, to work within a secondary pupil referral unit in Newbury. The unit specifically caters for KS3 students who have been excluded or were at risk of exclusion from mainstream school. All students have social, emotional and mental health difficulties but may also have other additional needs such as Autism, ADHD or Moderate Learning Difficulties.

Your main role will be working with the students across a variety of core subjects at Key stage 3 level, assisting them with engaging in the curriculum and making  progress towards more positive futures. The needs and abilities of the students will be varied and so you must be willing to adapt lessons and activities to allow for this. Active and engaging lessons will be key to being successful in this role and an interest in active or creative subjects such as PE, Art or Music would be beneficial.

Although previous experience in a similar setting would be most beneficial for this role, the school are willing to consider any applicants without experience teaching in PRU or those who have only taught at primary level. Someone with a positive, proactive and confident personality is essential for this role, as well as someone who is not fazed by a fast paced environment that can be challenging and can be subject to change.

If you would like to apply for this role, or find out more information, please contact Zoe on the Thames Valley team.

All applicants will require the appropriate qualifications and training for this role. Please see for details.

All pay rates quoted will be inclusive of 12.07% statutory holiday pay. This advert is for a temporary position. In some cases, the option to make this role permanent may become available at a later date.

Teaching Personnel is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. We offer all our registered candidates FREE child protection and prevent duty training. All candidates must undertake or have undertaken a valid enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. Full assistance provided.
