Learning Beyond the Classroom Lead at Greenwood School
‘Every interaction will be a learning experience, and every learning experience must be an opportunity for progress.’
At Greenwood School we will work together as a community to ensure that all the young people in our care receive the best possible preparation for independent adult life. Learning from a young person’s early childhood experiences, education journey and current home circumstances, we aim to create for them a bespoke learning journey.
This is an exciting opportunity for a motivated instructor aspiring to move toward leadership.
Due to a review and restructure of our curriculum provision we are recruiting for a Learning Beyond the Classroom (LBC) Instructor at Greenwood School. Greenwood is a Pupil Referral Unit serving the 9 secondary schools in the New Forest we have approximately 70 students on our roll at any one time and work with upwards of 50 students through our outreach programmes either in their mainstream schools or their homes. Students are referred to Greenwood for a variety of reasons including being medically unfit for school, emotionally vulnerable, at risk of permanent exclusion or because they have been permanently excluded from school.
The successful candidate will be leading our Learning Beyond the Classroom (LBC) curriculum working in collaboration with our Academic, Therapeutic and Outreach specialist teams to provide support, engage, stretch and challenge young people who present with a spectrum of needs.
We are looking for talented, creative individuals who are outstanding practitioners in their fields.
LBC is a new addition to the curriculum at Greenwood and the successful candidate will be instrumental in designing, implementing and securing the successful day to day running of the curriculum both for students on Greenwood site, students who attend our mainstream feeder schools and those who require an alternative approach to the normal mainstream experience.
At Greenwood The child lies at the heart of our practice and you will need to be able to demonstrate: unconditional positive regard, resilience, academic excellence, the highest expectations for the children and yourself, develop a restorative teaching approach to behaviour and possess the dynamism, imagination and skill to work collaboratively at all levels toward improved outcomes for our children.
If you possess what it takes to make a difference and are deeply motivated to educate, engage and inspire children we want to hear from you.
The LBC curriculum will need to support our students to;
- Develop the attributes, skills and knowledge that they will need to be successful in their future
- Enable greater understanding of team working and personal responsibility
- Learn new skills and activities not previously experienced
- Improve self-discipline, self-esteem and empathy
- Develop key social skills
- Work in the outdoors for example through bush craft, camp skills and orienteering alongside climbing, skiing & canoeing
