About The Role

Dorchester Learning Centre is looking for an inspirational and dedicated KS3/KS4 teacher to join our school in September 2024.  This is a position that will allow you to focus on delivering personalised learning to our pupils and make a difference to the lives of young people. You will be working with a team who are passionate about helping our pupils to be the best that they can be. Our class sizes are small (8-10 pupils), with a Learning Mentor to support you. If putting children first in education matters to you, then we would love to hear from you.

You should be able to demonstrate:

  • Previous experience of working with pupils with ASD and SEMH
  • Ability to develop strong professional relationships with the young people who have complex needs and have often experienced significant difficulties in previous education settings
  • Creativity, compassion and dedication to take on additional professional development
  • Skills in planning and preparing learning activities to support the development within the national curriculum and improve social communication.
  • Expertise to react calmly to challenging situations and behaviour and demonstrate the resilience needed to support children with high levels of anxiety. Develop guidance to support others to manage behaviour in a positive way.
  • Experience in communicating frequently and effectively with colleagues and families about the needs of the children and regularly reviewing strategies and practice as their needs change.
  • Aptitude to use your own initiative to meet young people’s varying and complex needs

This is an exciting time to join our wonderful school as we expand both our pupil numbers and our site at Monkton Park. We passionately believe that happy, highly respected employees are vital for the smooth running of our school. We therefore take the wellbeing of our staff very seriously and ensure that they all maintain a healthy work-life balance. Successful candidates will be prepared to work hard and respond to the daily challenges of school life but won’t have any unreasonable demands placed upon them

Dorchester Learning centre educates pupils aged between 5 - 16, who can't access mainstream education for a variety of reasons.  This might be for medical reasons, an SEMH need, dual registered placements with a mainstream school or pupils who have been permanently excluded from their mainstream provision.  We are the only school in Dorset with the Trauma Informed School accreditation. We are a learning community that is child centred, putting the needs of our pupils first. 

Visits to our school our highly recommended during the school day, so please don't hesitate to contact Debbie Guyler to arrange an appointment on 01305 261213 or email [email protected].

Dorchester Learning Centre values the diversity of our workforce and welcomes applications from all sectors of the community.

Dorchester Learning Centre is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people; this is a commitment which we expect all staff and volunteers to share. The successful candidate will be required to have a Disclosure and Barring Service check in line with the Governments safer recruitment guidelines.
