Sessional Programme Teachers/Tutors – Inspired Directions School

Our independent school, The Inspired Directions School (IDS), offering alternative provision for learners whose needs cannot be met within mainstream education achieved independent school status in June 2014 and was graded as “good” in all areas in its first Ofsted inspection in June 2015. Fundamental to its ethos are the values of Individuality, Collectivism and Progression. The personality, interests and needs of each young person are at the core of our approach. We are committed to the on-going and future progress of all learners and have developed a broad and flexible curriculum which enables us to meet a range of learning needs in developing a personalised timetable for each student.

We are currently putting together a flexible bank of teachers/tutors to provide support and cover for curriculum delivery across all areas during busy periods.

  • Providing 1-to-1 pastoral and mentoring support to disengaged young people

  • Maintaining student discipline in accordance with the School’s procedures
