We are able to offer flexible working conditions. Full time and part time applications welcomed.

We are seeking a teacher who is passionate about supporting children and young people who have often found school a challenge, a teacher who shares our determination to improve our students' life chances and give them learning opportunities which stimulate and excite.

You will be an experienced primary or secondary teacher who wants to develop your practice, engaging both KS2 and KS3 children in more dynamic learning.

We are looking for a teacher who has experience of working in an inclusive school, who can develop and deliver our literacy and numeracy focused curriculum to small groups of KS2 and KS3 students.

A teacher who:

  • demonstrates the highest quality of teaching, learning and assessment
  • inspires our students and shares a passion for learning
  • plans and teaches interactive, exciting lessons which engage our KS3 pupils including those facing barriers to learning and those with social emotional, mental and health needs
  • has up-to-date knowledge of the KS2 and / or KS3 curriculum and a desire to teach in an innovative, creative and exciting way which engages reluctant learners.

This is an opportunity to join our multi-academy trust which specialises in alternative provision and is committed to offering continual professional development to all our employees.

We believe that working with excluded children and young people is immensely rewarding. We can offer a place of work where staff and colleagues share a determination to improve the outcomes for excluded and vulnerable children.

Olive AP Academy is an alternative provision academy that supports pupils aged between 7 - 16. The academy has up to 92 pupils on roll at any time and offers support to pupils in KS2 - KS4 with complex or medical needs and those who have been permanently excluded from school.

Olive Academies is a multi-academy trust with three alternative provision academies and an outreach service in London and the East of England. We are one of the first academy sponsors specialising in alternative provision in England. We support children and young people who have experienced difficulty in learning in mainstream schools. We also work with pupils who are at risk of exclusion, those who have been permanently excluded from school and those who have medical needs.

Our aim is to transform the lives of children and young people for whom traditional teaching methods have not worked. We help our pupils develop the confidence, skills and knowledge to believe that they can be successful in their own lives.
