Job Opportunities

The Bridge School - Outdoor and Adventurous Activities Instructor - HBC6 (£23,166 - £25,694)

PERMANENT POSITION – Teachers Pay and Conditions


The Bridge School is a Pupil Referral Unit for secondary aged students, who are excluded or at risk of exclusion from mainstream high schools in the borough of Halton. All students present social, emotional and/or mental health issues, which can manifest in challenging behaviours and communication.

The school seeks to employ a person centred, organised, creative, optimistic and emotionally resilient Instructor of OAA. The successful candidate will be able to develop and resource an emergent provision that becomes increasingly reflective of student needs. It will be necessary to deliver accredited water-based activities, climbing, mountain biking, walking and a Duke of Edinburgh scheme.

You will be delivering to small groups of students, but due to the presenting needs and behaviours you will be required to have a high degree of professionalism, excellent group management skills, be articulate and solution focussed, and a have good understanding of wider safeguarding processes. Many students will initially have had little or no experience in the outdoors.

The on-going sustainability of this post will be reflected in the school’s ability to provide placements for its own students and the students of referring high schools. Well delivered programs will encourage future student numbers and referrals.

For the correct person, this role is a highly rewarding post. There is much room for the development of the provision under your lead, and of your own person and professional development.

Informal discussions with the Head of Alternative Provision or the Head Teacher, and visits to the school are welcome. These can be arranged by contacting Wayne Alexander (01928-581301). Applications can be obtained from Bev MacQuire, School Business Manager bev.macquire@halton.gov.uk

You should note that, if successful you will be required to obtain a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Check or Enhanced DBS Check for Regulated Activity (formerly Criminal Records Bureau). Further information about DBS checks can be found at www.gov.uk/disclosure-barring-service-check

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of its students and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

This is an equal opportunities organisation which welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
