This Academy is being rapidly transformed and ensures a strong emphasis on raising standards, securing academic achievement and raising aspiration. You can help us deliver this transformation and become part of an enthusiastic team, building a bright future for its community in the market town of Stockton-on-Tees.

We are looking to appoint a motivated individual as our Bridge Manager from September 2020. Working with young people and supporting them to achieve their full potential, the Inclusion Team puts students first and supports them to overcome their barriers to learning and make progress in all areas of the curriculum. The Bridge Manager will promote the learning and welfare of vulnerable students who, for a variety of reasons, are unable to take part in classroom learning for short periods of time. Liaising with teachers over subject specific work, the Bridge Manager will assist students in small groups or one to one with their study skills and support re-integration back into the classroom. The Bridge Manager will produce and deliver packages of support for vulnerable and/or emotional students e.g. anger management, social skills and self-esteem.

Candidates should have experience of working with and providing support to vulnerable students. They will also need excellent communication skills, organisational/admin ability, and be enthusiastic and flexible. The ability to contribute positively to the work of the team is vital as is the ability to work independently and use own initiative.
