Closing date: Noon TUESDAY 7TH MAY 2019

Corley Centre is a secondary special school for children with complex social and communication difficulties. A significant number of students have an autism diagnosis.  Students bring a range of abilities and aspirations, special educational needs, vulnerabilities, challenges and behaviours.   Student attainment covers the full National Curriculum and GCSE/vocational range.

The school has been awarded NAS Autism Accreditation and a comprehensive package of training will be provided for all new staff.

Governors are seeking a highly driven and creative teacher to deliver our Year 7 Nurture curriculum to a small group of Year 7 students from September 2019.  This is a newly created post resulting from an increase in student numbers.  The learning environment will be purposely designed and refurbished in time for September.

The Year 7 Nurture curriculum is based around Cornerstones, which covers the full National Curriculum and requires a creative, thematic approach to lessons, enabling students to relate learning to every day experiences and see the links between subject content.  Support is available from specialist subject leaders.  This post will be particularly suitable for a primary trained teacher with experience of working with children with autism.

Applications are welcome from teachers with experience in primary, secondary, mainstream or special sectors.

All applications are returnable direct to the school either by post to Corley Centre, Church Lane, Corley, Warwickshire, CV7 8AZ or email to
