Aspire Alternative Provision

Teacher of Science

Overview

We are looking for a versatile and dedicated Teacher of Science for our Blueprint alternative provision school in Aylesbury. We work with permanently excluded children and those at risk of exclusion, with a focus on nurture and creativity.

Personal attributes

We are looking for applicants who can teach Science to students who may
not yet have discovered a love for the subject. We believe that young
people who have been excluded need a nurturing and loving approach, to
feel valued and cared for, and to have teachers who believe in them. We
know this work is not always easy. We want to hire teachers who can be
calm in the face of challenging behaviour, and who will always see the best
in a young person, and find something to love in them, no matter what.


We have high expectations of our young people, in terms of their behaviour,
social development, and academic achievement. We know that young
people who have been excluded often have complex backgrounds, and/or
a number of unmet special educational needs. When they receive the right
support, they are capable of great things.


We deliver the Science National Curriculum to our KS3 students and offer
Entry Level Certificate and GCSE Combined Science Award to our KS4
single-registered students. We also support our KS4 dual-registered
students with the award offered by their referring school. We are proud of
our aspirational Science curriculum which goes beyond that offered in
many AP settings.


We are looking for someone who will help us raise standards even further,
and who will love our students, and help them achieve extraordinary things.
