Do you have these core traits to be a successful Change Maker and Teacher at Bader Academy?

Bader Academy is a special school which opened in September 2020, and which provides 100 places for children and young people, aged 5-19, who have an Education, Health and Care Plan with a primary diagnosis of Communication and Interaction Difficulties.

As the school grows to meet our full capacity, we are seeking to appoint a number of teachers to support both our existing students and our new starters to “be kind, be safe, be ready”. Due increasing student numbers, and also to the changing requirements of current students, we are seeking applicants to start either as soon as possible, or from 1st September 2022.

Our ambition and yours will be that Bader is a centre of excellence for both the specialist provision and for promoting the latest inclusive practices across education.

Our children and young people at Bader deserve an education that will change their lives and give them the opportunity to fulfil their potential. Staff employed in our Academy Trust enjoy a fulfilling career and we focus on releasing your potential and maximising your impact.

The vision for Nexus is that we are constantly “Learning together; to be the best we can be.” This vision is what we aspire to and is as relatable to every employee and partner of our Trust as it is to our children, young adults and their families.

Our Opportunity

We will nurture, support and provide you with the professional development needed for you to succeed. Through our Trust we can also provide the training and development for you to develop skills and qualifications to support you in working with our children and young people.

We are looking for practitioners who have an innovative approach to their work and aren’t afraid to think of new and interesting approaches to the support they offer.
