Are you someone who has a passion for teaching students who have social, emotional, and mental health disorders? Do you have prior experience working with young people who have mental health challenges and are disengaged? Are you seeking an opportunity to make a tangible difference in the lives of young individuals?

We are currently searching for Specialist Teachers to work in various SEMH specialist settings, such as Pupil Referral Units, SEMH specialist schools, CAHMS Education services, Behaviour provisions within mainstream settings, and Local Authority outreach teams. Our aim is to support education providers who cater to children and young people who, due to various reasons, cannot access any other formal educational settings. These individuals are the most vulnerable, at-risk, and hard-to-reach members of our community. In these roles, it is crucial to understand their SEMH needs, as that is a prerequisite for their academic development. We are looking for individuals who can make a positive impact by addressing their SEMH needs effectively.

  • Therapeutic teaching approach
  • Experience in teaching with emotional regulation and with positive behaviour/de-escalation strategies
  • Positive role model to support communication with a sensitive, nurturing, and consistent approach
  • Experience with SEMH, Trauma, Sensory processing, social communication teaching background
  • Ability to build strong and meaningful relationships with vulnerable students
  • Experience working with disengaged teenagers is essential.

What you can expect from these roles:

  • To work in settings with a likeminded team who are equally as dedicated to the learning and personal development of young people
  • Experience working in specialist therapeutic settings.
  • Working with Multidisciplinary therapy teams 
  • Extensive specialist training from SEMH Specialists

Requirements for SEMH Teachers:

  • Although some of our teaching roles require QTS/QTLS, we want to hear from all Teachers no matter what your qualifications are!
  • The passion to teach and inspire young people during a crucial stage of their personal and academic development.
  • A nurturing, patient, empathetic and holistic approach

Although experience teaching in SEMH specialist settings is beneficial, I would also love to hear from individuals who are interested in taking their first steps into SEND settings.
