This is a fantastic opportunity to join one of the largest alternative Educational providers in the East Midlands, including independent schools, trading companies and a charity within the group.

Full description

R.E.A.L. was established in 2008 to provide creative educational solutions for children and young people, between the ages of 5 and 19, who may be “lost to learning” or “hard to place”. We create a continuum of excellence in education that spreads beyond the school or academy gate and allows those who may struggle in a mainstream setting to reach their potential.

R.E.A.L. is not just about putting provision in place. We seek to put personalised and meaningful pathways in place that will re-focus learning for each young person and lead towards their development as a skilled and independent member of their community. The reasons for disengagement may be wide ranging and complex, so R.E.A.L. sets out to Re-think Engagement & Approaches to Learning for each individual in a solution focussed way, which places them at the heart of their own learning.
