Five Rivers Child Care Education service is committed to providing warm and consistent environments where pupils develop positive behaviours, whether in an in-house facility or within our outreach service in the community, all our education services provide the same level of individual planning and learning for each child.
Our schools and 1ACE Provision offer a balance of academic studies, physical and outdoor education, vocational studies, and personal development programmes for those who have had limited success in formal education, or who have struggled in specialist settings.
Our children are taught in small groups or on a one to one basis, using bite size learning based on personal interests and community issues to help engage the children and help extend their concentration. Our teachers are specialist trained to work in developing the child. Our holistic approach boosts confidence, self-esteem and helps our young people to develop skills to be a successful learner. A therapeutic informed approach is used to recognise and reduce barriers to learning and create a personalised curriculum.
We are looking for Innovative and Creative Teachers with experience of working with children who are SEMH, to join our friendly teams at our Outreach provisions in Dorset.
