On Track Education Centre, Barnstaple

On Track Education Services Ltd is a not-for-profit company established by a team of teachers in 2004. The company now operates six independent special schools and additional support services around the country for young people with a range of diverse special educational needs. Students have their places funded by their local authorities or schools.

On Track Education Centre in Barnstaple opened in September 2015 and is a satellite provision of On Track in Totnes. We provide education for students with a range of SEND including self-esteem, mental health and emotional needs. The students, who all have EHCPs or Statements, each follow a personalised, individual curriculum ranging from Early Years provision to GCSE and Vocational Qualifications. It was described in the latest Ofsted report as a 'good environment in which to learn' having 'effective tracking of pupils' academic progress', where 'pupils are safe and feel safe' and attendance is 'particularly strong'. The Centre provides full-time education for the students on roll as well as outreach, intervention and tuition services for other schools in the area.

We are seeking an inspirational teaching practitioner to join our team supporting the academic and non-academic progress of each student in the school. We are interested to hear from teachers and tutors who are able to teach up to GCSE level and who have a passion and interest in working with pupils with SEN and a range of emotional and behavioural difficulties.

Every day at On Track is a fresh start. We aim to restore young people's self-confidence, self-esteem, self-control and self-motivation through a flexible, personalised, needs-led programme with unconditional care, nurture and support.

The successful candidate will be an excellent classroom practitioner who can inspire our students to enjoy and achieve. Exceptional communication skills, a sense of humour and an ability to relate to complex and challenging young people is essential.

On Track Education Services is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All applicants will be subject to a full Disclosure And Barring Service check before appointment is confirmed.
