Do you believe in the transformative power of education?

We offer the time and support that ensures, together, we can shape futures. 

Join our mission to inspire and empower students, making a lasting impact.

At Pivot, we believe children deserve better. In our academies we teach and support children and young people from Key Stages 2 – 4. Some of our students have EHCPs and some have been excluded, yet all of them found that mainstream education was not working for them. Every day our teams do incredible work, making a huge difference to some of the most complex and challenging children, many of whom come to us with traumatic backgrounds.

The Pivot Academy Kirklees (upper provision) provides support for young people in Key Stage 4, who have a wide range of complex needs and are usually supported by an EHCP. We work with students and their parents/carers to provide bespoke support based on the individual needs of each child, giving them opportunities to gain a variety of qualifications and follow personalised pathways through to employment. Our students study GCSEs alongside functional and vocational skills in Sport, Creative Crafts, Health, Fitness and Business.

We have an exciting opportunity for a dedicated and resilient practitioner to join our team. As a teacher, you will promote and engage with students in your subject area delivering quality education to learners with SEND.

We are looking for a reflective practitioner with a strong passion for helping every learner in their care reach their full potential.

Working at Pivot will give you a real chance to change our student’s lives and we truly believe you will find working here a rewarding experience.

What can we offer you? 

  • Inclusive Environment: We cater for students with diverse SEMH learning needs, providing a positive, supportive and nurturing atmosphere where you can thrive as a teacher, purposefully delivering exciting lessons that meet specialist needs.
  • Small Class Sizes: Enjoy the benefits of teaching smaller groups, allowing for personalised attention and meaningful connections. This means more time to plan, deliver and assess, making the difference in the classroom, where it really matters.
  • Holistic Approach: We focus on developing not only academic skills but also life and personal skills, fostering well-rounded individuals, transforming the futures of our learners.
  • Collaborative Team: Join a small, passionate team of educators committed to making a difference in students’ lives. Receive full support from a dedicated team of senior leaders and colleagues, with a focus on your professional development and career progression.
  • Ethical Commitment: Join a community that values empathy, kindness, and integrity.

 What are we looking for? 

  • Passion: A love for maths and a desire to ignite curiosity in our students.
  • Adaptability: Flexibility to tailor teaching methods to individual learners’ needs.
  • Empathy: Understanding and supporting students using trauma informed practice.
  • Creativity: Innovative approaches to make maths engaging and relatable.
  • Commitment: Helping students to achieve their potential, with high expectations of themselves and others.

We do encourage you to submit your application form as soon as possible as we reserve the right to change the closing date for a vacancy.
