Are you an English Teacher committed to improving the lives of children and young people?

We are looking for an experienced English Teacher to join our fantastic team at Closeburn House School in Dumfries. As English Teacher, you will take a creative approach to teaching pupils according to their educational needs, ensuring delivery of the school curriculum in a way that maximises children’s achievement and ability to develop.

This is a great opportunity for an English Teacher who wants to spend less time on paperwork and more time developing creative learning opportunities for children with varied and complex needs.

We are looking for an English Teacher, experienced in teaching Key Stage 1 or 2, who shares our vision to build incredible futures by empowering vulnerable young people in the UK, to be happy and to make their way in the world.
