Are you looking for an exciting and unique new teaching opportunity?
Seamab is a children’s charity. Our school has been developed for children who have experienced trauma and loss, and our model is creative and dynamic. We have a maximum of eighteen pupils fifteen of whom live at Seamab, looked after by our skilled and experienced care team.
Our children learn best when they are engaged in a motivating and aspirational curriculum which is relevant for them. We provide individualised programmes of learning to meet each of the children’s needs and interests. More formal methods of learning and teaching are balanced with active learning, a strong focus on health and wellbeing, and a supportive and nurturing approach. We use Dyadic Developmental Practice to support our work with the children and all staff are trained in this attachment based model.
Teachers, support workers and children at Seamab have many opportunities to learn together. Learning experiences are often diverse and currently include yoga, forest schools, outdoor education, skiing, music and art.
We are delighted to be able to offer this exciting opportunity to join our established and dedicated multi-disciplinary team. We are looking for an experienced, enthusiastic and skilled Primary teacher. The successful candidate would deliver learning and teaching across the Curriculum for Excellence primary stages. Previous experience of working with children with additional support needs and a detailed knowledge of CfE is essential. The successful candidiate would lead learning and teaching for small groups of children and would contribute to school development.
Seamab is a national resource for children who need a specialist care and education placement to meet their needs. We are based near Kinross in a rural setting. More information on our work can be found on www.seamab.org.uk
