NEW School Counsellor. Person Specification103286

NEW Practitioner application form 2023

As our offer continues to grow, we are seeking creative, outstanding teachers to join our bank of self-employed staff for our Wilderness Schooling and Therapeutic Wilderness teams.

Wilderness Schooling is our curriculum-based outdoor learning programme with a proven impact on academic progress and social emotional health.

herapeutic Wilderness capitalises on the innate benefits of the outdoors to meet the social, emotional needs of each child. Our programmes are bespoke; every young person is placed at the centre of delivery.

All of our practitioners have qualified teacher status and are exceptional individuals with creative flair, a passion for teaching beyond the four walls of the classroom and the ability to place social emotional wellbeing at the heart of what they do. All children who take part in our programmes make huge improvements in their social emotional health compared to those who remain in the classroom.

We all love teaching and learning and are able to embrace mess and disorder for the sake of spontaneity and wow moments. At the same time, we have a solid understanding of the national curriculum and higher order thinking skills; we use this knowledge to accelerate academic progress in an outdoor, magical classroom. In addition, we all have the skills to build trusting, non-judgemental relationships with the young people we work with; with this strong foundation, we provide regular and consistent contact to influence a child’s wellbeing and development in the rich multi-sensory learning environment of the outdoors.

Many of the children we work with require something a ‘little different’ to achieve and build self-belief. To be successful in this role you will require compassion, patience and resourceful, positive behaviour management.
We would love to hear from you.
