Oak Academy is seeking to recruit a full time Student Support Centre Manager, to improve the life outcomes and opportunities for our students and their families.

The primary purpose of the SSC Manager is to provide support in addressing the needs of a case load of students within KS3 and KS4 with general special educational needs to overcome a range of barriers to learning. The Student Support Centre is located in a suite of fully equipped rooms. The attractive facilities include specialist teaching areas, equipped with computers alongside smaller interview/work rooms. The SEND team consists of the Special Education Needs Coordinator (SENDCO), the SEND Manager, ELSA specialists and a wider team of Teaching Assistants.
