About Ethos Academy Trust

Ethos Academy Trust is located within Kirklees, West Yorkshire. The overarching aim of the Trust is to create academies that provide environments that are welcoming, caring, calm, safe and purposeful and that, within a nurturing ethos, stretch our learners academically, support them pastorally and develop them socially and emotionally.

We seek to explore and celebrate the qualities that make our pupils unique. We believe passionately that education, at every stage of the pupil journey, is about the development and nurture of the whole child. We aspire for all our pupils to become confident, happy and caring individuals who achieve personal success and develop a love of learning and of life.

In addition to our three academies (Ethos College, Reach Academy and Engage Academy), the Trust provides wide ranging early intervention outreach support and training to mainstream schools, alongside managing the statutory exclusions process on behalf of 
Kirklees Local Authority.


This is an exciting opportunity to join Ethos Academy Trust, where we aim to deliver the very best educational experiences for pupils from across the primary and secondary age range. Our academies are welcoming, calm and purposeful and, within a nurturing ethos, our learners are stretched academically, supported pastorally and developed socially and emotionally.

We are looking to appoint an inspirational Inclusion Worker (SEMH & Academic Support) to join our passionate and hardworking team at Ethos College. Ethos College is rated as “Outstanding” by Ofsted and is an Alternative Provision for Key Stage 4 pupils.

You will be required to work imaginatively and in partnership with parents and carers, teaching and support staff in schools and other professionals in order to achieve the very best outcomes for the pupils.
