Would you like to work with young people who need support with their social, emotional mental health? If so, this is the ideal opportunity for you.
The school is based in Dorking and provides support for children aged 9-16 years who have a range of learning and behavioural needs due to social, emotional and mental health challenges. All students that attend the school have a designated Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) which details their specific needs in terms of the care and support they will have access to. The pupils at the school can struggle to form string, healthy relationships and can present high levels of anxiety and challenging behaviour.
The school is part of an award winning academy trust that has schools across Surrey, London, Sussex and Berkshire. All the schools in the Trust have access to The Training School, so as a member of staff, you will have access to high levels of ongoing support and training which will help your career to progress. This opportunity is very much open to more experienced practitioners or recent graduates that are keen to kick start their career in special needs.
