This is an excellent time to join James Brindley as the Academy continues to implement a strategic vision developed by pupils, staff and other stakeholders.  Join us to ‘Think Differently to inspire young people to overcome all barriers and achieve their dreams.’

James Brindley is a stand-alone Academy based in a wide variety of locations across the City of Birmingham.  In the course of a school year, we educate over 3,000 young people for periods ranging from a few days in hospital to several years in one of our teaching centres.  The majority of our young people have complex medical needs, and many have been out of education for a significant period of time prior to joining the Academy. We offer a full-time curriculum to young people from EYFS to KS5 and our aim is always to enable them to ‘close the gap’ and to make outstanding progress during the time they are with us.

This is an exciting opportunity to join our Short-Term Provision and Hospitals Teams, working with home based pupils who are unable to attend school for medical reasons. The job involves actively supporting/facilitating work set by the home schools or delivering personalised learning programmes. This will be a blend of face-to-face and online sessions and so good IT skills are essential. For this particular round of recruitment there is a preference for Science and/or Maths.

We have a vacancy for a creative, well-organised and resilient professional who has high expectations and a positive mindset. Candidates must be able to work the hours agreed on a flexible basis as our priority is always to schedule lessons at the most appropriate time for pupils and their parents/carers. Previous experience as a teacher/tutor/teaching assistant is desirable, but we will consider suitably qualified and skilled applicants from a range of educational and employment backgrounds with a preference for Science and/or Maths on this occasion. It is essential that you have at least a GCSE A-C (or equivalent) in English and Maths along with a relevant Level 3 qualification and excellent IT skills. Due to the nature of the posts, a current valid driving licence and car access are also essential.

This post is covered by Part 7 of the Immigration Act (2016) and therefore the ability to speak fluent and spoken English is an essential requirement for this role.

Closing Date:  30 November 2021, 8:00am

Interview date: 7 December 2021
