Vacancy Description / Summary
We are always on the lookout for enthusiastic staff who would like the opportunity to make a real difference in the education and lives of their pupils. Ardfern School has created a deliberately alternative setting to deliver quality education to young people whom have struggled in mainstream schools.
With small class numbers, and access to resources, successful candidates will be encouraged and supported to lead their own subject area, as well as engage in cross curricular opportunities throughout the school year. Being situated conveniently in the centre of the community, the opportunities for public and outdoor learning are endless.
We look forward to meeting energetic and passionate teachers with a desire to engage a diverse group of pupils whom find it difficult in a conventional setting. There is a responsibility for the post holder to demonstrate a commitment to quality service delivery through continuous improvement for the benefit of the young people at the heart of the organisation.
