Oasis Charitable Trust is a ground-breaking group of charities that have been pioneering models of sustainable and holistic education and community development over the last 35 years. We are now seeking a dynamic and transformational leader as the Director of Learning and Enrichment for Oasis Restore – the UK’s first secure school. This is a career-defining opportunity to lead the development and delivery of our bespoke integrated care and education for young people in custody.
Oasis Restore will offer a reparative opportunity to children and young people, who have become criminally involved, often as a result of high levels of trauma, vulnerability and threat. Our vision for Oasis Restore is focused on restoration, rather than retribution, on creating a safe environment with a holistic approach to life where every child is given opportunities equal to those offered their peers; ones that enable young people to make different choices and lead positive, productive lives.
We are looking for an organisational leader with the ability to lead and develop an education offer that is highly differentiated and innovative to achieve our shared vision. You will be values-led and have sustained, relevant leadership experience of working with children who are neurodiverse and those with Social, Emotional and Mental Health difficulties, challenging behaviour and experience barriers to learning.
For further information about the role, including details about how to apply, please visit the Oasis UK charity website or download the documents from this page. We actively encourage applications from people of all ethnic backgrounds and minority and underrepresented groups.
Applications should be received by noon on Friday 30th April 2021.
Leadership interviews will take place on the 6th and 7th May via Teams.
Assessment and final panel interviews will take place on the 12th and 14th May and are being held at South Quay College, East London.
