About the role

The Hope Serviceis a unique service in Surrey and this would be a wonderful opportunity for a dynamic, forward thinking teacher to work in a multi agency setting which aims to enhance and improve the lives of the young people. The Hope Service is a multi-agency service for young people aged 11-18 who are experiencing complex mental health, emotional, social and behavioural needs which could cause a placement breakdown or may require a Tier 4 hospital admission. These needs cannot be met by one agency alone. It is a joint partnership between Health Services, Children's Services and Education who work together to provide support to young people in the community and through day programme provision. 

At Hope there is a dedicated team of social workers, nurses, teachers, psychologists, art/drama therapists, psychiatrists, a systemic family worker and activity workers.

Our remit is:

  • To prevent or shorten Tier 4 inpatient hospital admissions for young people with mental health difficulties.
  • To prevent out of county fostering, community home or residential school placements for young people
  • To prevent family breakdown, where a young person is likely to be placed out of county
  • To work with young people in the community and/or through the provision of an individualised day programme to meet their specific therapeutic, educational and social needs.
  • To support young people to access employment, education or training on exit from Hope.
  • To work with young people on a short- term basis, usually for 6 -12 months.

The day programme offers structured therapeutic, educational and personalised recreational activities to young people. The programme is flexible to ensure that it meets individual needs in a safe, supportive and therapeutic environment. In addition to education, there is a focus on individual and group therapy, art therapy, drama therapy, psychology, cognitive behavioural therapy, anger and anxiety management, assertiveness training and practical social and living skills. 

The successful applicant will teach Maths at Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 in small classes (usually 1-3 young people). The successful candidate must have qualified teacher status, an up to date understanding of the Maths curriculum and may have experience working with young people with SEN.

The Hope service is a unique service in Surrey and this would be a wonderful opportunity for a dynamic, forward thinking teacher to work in a multi agency setting which aims to enhance and improve the lives of young people. We have recently achieved Care Excellence accreditation and have been nominated for The National Health Service Journal Award and we have been invited to give a presentation nationally at the Royal College of Psychiatrists. The Hope Service achieved an Outstanding OfSTED rating in May 2018.
