Do you have what it takes to teach the TBAP Cambridge AP Academy, and be a part of the
highest performing AP academy chain in the country led by Seamus Oates, an Executive
Head Teacher of national standing?
This job is about more than teaching in the TBAP Academy, located in Cambridge City
Centre. It’s about turning around the lives of vulnerable learners. Yes, it’s a big challenge.
But it’s also an inspiring opportunity to teach Key Stage 3 and GCSE Design and
Technology to SEMH learners.
At TBAP Multi-Academy Trust, we already know what it takes to achieve results like that.
Led by Seamus Oates, we are the highest performing AP Academy Chain in the country.
The trust includes the Bridge and Courtyard AP Academies, which have both been judged
‘outstanding’ in all areas by Ofsted.
The thinking behind our success? Learning is at the heart of our approach. Yes, we
recognise the issues, difficulties and challenges that our students face. But we are
absolutely clear they are here to make progress in their learning.
That vision will underpin your work as you take our approach and roll it out in this TBAP
provision. Cambridge AP Academy offers a holistic curriculum that integrates social care and
therapeutic interventions with education to provide appropriate support for these extremely
vulnerable young people.
TBAP delivers Alternative Provision Education across four London Boroughs and in
Cambridge. We have number of exciting programmes including a growing Teaching School
Alliance, an innovative educational Residence and a 16-19 Academic AP Academy.
Are you an outstanding teacher with a passion for achieving the best possible outcomes for
excluded learners and those with SMEH? Are you a teacher with an established track record
of delivering excellence? Are you hungry for a new challenge? Would you welcome an
opportunity to help lead an established AP academy to ‘outstanding‘?
If you share our vision and hopes for our learners, we would like to hear from you.
We are keen to interview candidates who are resilient, show initiative and believe they have
the potential to deliver outstanding outcomes.
The TBAP Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children
and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS
disclosure will be requested for the successful candidate in accordance with
Safeguarding Children and Safer Recruitment in Education legislation.
