Location: Ochil Tower School
Type of vacancy: Employed
Ochil Tower School is an independent residential and day school for children and young people with additional support needs from the ages of 8-21 operating over 52 weeks of the year. We are committed to promoting a nurturing, safe and fulfilling environment for the children and young people that we support. Most of the young people at Ochil Tower School have experienced a disrupted and fractured education, and have been referred to the school because it has a reputation for successfully meeting the needs of young people who have been unable to access other educational resources. The majority of learners are at the Early and First levels of the Curriculum for Excellence. In response to the pupils’ high social and educational needs, the school focuses on creating imaginative and flexible approaches to develop self esteem, confidence and an interest in broad learning and educational aims. This is facilitated by a flexible social pedagogical approach which combines care and education as mutually affecting arenas of lifelong learning. It is the task of the educator to recognise and build on the individual strengths of each young person and use their interests to help them engage in their learning.
We are a Camphill community which incorporates the ethos of Waldorf education and Camphill values into our 24h curriculum which is based on the Curriculum for Excellence.
