Work Experience & Careers Advisor – Full Time – Fixed term until 18th December 2020 with possible extension subject to funding.

Lighthouse School in Leeds is a completely unique secondary school. In fact, we are the first of our kind in the country – a specialist free school. We focus on a ‘destination-led’ approach for our students who all have a diagnosis of autism (ASC).

Our journey so far has been amazing and we are immensely proud of what our students have achieved. We are a ‘Good’ school with aspirations to be ‘Outstanding’ in the near future.

Lighthouse School is dedicated to maintaining its fantastic reputation of providing an individualised education. We provide a flexible learning environment which reflects the bespoke needs of each and every one of our students.

We are committed to inspiring and enabling our students, delivering meaningful skills for life in a holistic, nurturing, and stimulating learning environment. This is achieved through exceptional teaching, unwavering support, outstanding work experience, positive interactions, and role models. We repeatedly instil good behaviours in order to encourage resilience, independence, confidence, and wellbeing in all of our students.

We are seeking an enthusiastic individual with experience of leading and delivering careers activities including: events, trips, visits and work experience placements.

A background in careers advice and guidance would be an advantage; a demonstrable understanding of Education, Health and Care plan processes, academic working levels and progression pathways for young people with Special Educational Needs is a must.

By holding the highest of ambitions for our students (even if they cannot see it for themselves), we shine a light on their potential to lead the brightest of futures.

Are you devoted to making a difference to lives of students with ASC?

Are you innovative in your approach to learning and delivery?

Do you like to work in a unique and versatile environment?
