Ivy Education Trust is seeking to appoint a Behaviour Support Team (BST) Member to join the well- established behaviour team at Teignmouth Community School, Exeter Road.  This will involve supervision of secondary aged students in our RESET and ESCALATE internal isolation rooms, along with supporting them to make positive behaviour choices during the school day. The role will also include dealing with behaviour incidents that may arise, to fully support all members of the school community with inclusivity at the heart of everything we do. 

As a member of the BST, you must show a talent for dealing with challenging behaviour, demonstrate a level of resilience whilst at work, and the ability to build meaningful relationships with both young people and staff.

Throughout this role you will need to be able to demonstrate effective behaviour management techniques, build rapport and trust with learners and de-escalate incidents and promote learner growth, whilst maintaining a safe educational environment.

The position requires you to be able to effectively support students with challenging behaviours. As a member of the BST you will work alongside teachers and other staff to support the students in a constructive and controlled learning environment, both inside the classroom and around the site.

The Ivy Education Trust works closely with all schools within the Trust and beyond. The Ivy Education Trust celebrates the diversity of each of its schools and is founded upon the alignment of vision and values that we all commonly hold to secure the best outcomes for our pupils. 

The name of our Trust is inspired by the story of Dr Ivy Williams. Born in Teignbridge (Newton Abbot), in 1877, she managed what we would wish for all the children and young people of Teignbridge and surrounding area that we serve in our schools by fulfilling her childhood dreams and ambitions. 
On 10 May 1922 Dr Ivy Williams became the first woman to be called to the Bar (formally recognised as a qualified Barrister of Law) of England and Wales. 
The story of Dr Ivy Williams reminds us of the famous quote from Michaelangelo:
“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.”

The Ivy Education Trust supports and challenges all members of our learning community to dream big, aim high, and achieve more than they ever thought was possible.
