You will have outstanding interpersonal and behaviour management skills, have high expectations, and be fully committed to supporting opportunities for disadvantaged students with Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs). Class sizes for theory based work is limited to a maximum of 8 students but practical classes will see children within a Key Stage working together.

Your planning will take into account the diversity of need and ability within each teaching group, and you will have a good understanding of engagement of students, assessment and monitoring student progress.
