The role and what we are looking for

You will be an integral part of a passionate, committed, and ground-breaking multidisciplinary team, working integratively towards improving the outcomes for children so often overlooked.

You will teach class sizes of 5 children, with the support of two additional staff to tailor learning support to each student.
As a champion of restorative practice, you will place relational connection at the heart of everything you do. Your work will be the driving force that enables children to transition out of Oasis Restore with the support in place for them to succeed in the next step of their journeys.
