Summit Learning Trust Mission Statement

Success through Endeavour

Ambition through Challenge

Strength through Diversity

An authentic opportunity for developing impactful and personalised provision. At Ninestiles, we recognise that some learners require more specialist support than others to help them settle into the demands of secondary academy life. We also recognise that, from time to time, some learners may require a reset and a different way of working from their peers.

We have a clear vision for our in-house Alternative Provision offer and the learners it will serve: learner progress will be sustained and rapid; the small group environment we provide will enable the development of character and confidence and creativity. Learners will have additional opportunities for enrichment, but also be expected to eat together and socialise together. As a result of specialist work, we now have a firm foundation for further work in place.

Therefore, we require a practitioner who can blend the highest standards of personal tuition with the role modelling of character and personal standards. You will be effective with SEND learners, and perhaps have tutored 1:1 or small groups. You will be intellectually curious and engage with the evidence-base and professional discourse to develop effective and efficient and engaging lessons and interventions. You will be able to manage the expectations of parents, supporting and challenging as required. Your emotional regulation will be excellent. You will understand the importance of Quality First Teaching, but also how best to harness learning technologies. You will understand the importance of an effective TA and be able to work as a team to ensure that all learners in your care can return to Mainstream lessons confident, scholarly and mature.

Under the direction of SLT, you will provide responsive and personalised provision for learners who need a different offer to that provide in both our Resource Base or Mainstream provision.

A specialism in a Core subject would be a distinct advantage. As would a willingness to develop your SEND practice, perhaps through the new SENCO NPQ.
