Teacher Bristol Hospital Education Service. Special needs, Key stage 1 & EYFS.
Start date: 1st September 2021.
Bristol Hospital Education Service is looking for a highly skilled and adaptable teacher who can inspire and motivate young people to become inquisitive, resilient, adults.
We teach students whose chronic health conditions prevent them from attending their school, our purpose is to maintain their education through periods of illness so the effects on their learning are minimised.
Students are taught by BHES because they have been admitted to hospital or referred by community-based health practitioners. Teaching is delivered where possible in classes, but also in small group and 1:1 situations on or away from one of the service sites, we currently teach in three centres: The Bristol Royal Hospital for Children (BRHC), The Riverside Unit, and Falkland Road. The majority of long- and medium-term students we teach are referred by Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services.
If you are the successful applicant you will be:
- Highly engaging;
- Highly creative and adept at differentiating tasks to meet individual student’s needs, often on an instant basis during lessons.
- Able to communicate and engage with parents who have a child with a chronic health condition.
- Able to work with networks of professionals so that education provision works harmoniously with health and social care that is being provided to students and their families.
You will primarily work in Bristol Royal Hospital for Children teaching students in key stage 1 and early years and/or with special needs.
You will also teach other students (KS2) as required and support other non-specialist teachers using your subject specific knowledge and skills.
You will work with enthusiastic colleagues and in partnership with staff from other schools, health and social care services.
While your post will primarily be based in BRHC you may be required to teach in any part of the Service. We currently operate within mainstream school term dates.
The job may involve travelling. While the majority of teaching is within school hours, due to the nature of demand on the service directed time may vary on a week by week basis.
You will be able to visit us prior to interview by arrangement, please leave your e mail and name on our admin email address. Contact details can be located within the 'Apply Now' section; please log in or register to view.
Applications will close at 11:00 Monday May 10th 2021.
