Nexus is an empowering, learning-focused community. We strive to create an honest, open and innovative community with our learners, parents and peers. We believe that we have something unique and special here, we are proud to be different in the way we work; and how we teach and learn.



At Nexus, we do things differently.  Each member of staff is valued and recognised as a unique individual collaborating as part of a supportive community, to elevate one another with innovative ideas. Our strategies emerge from the collective positive mindsets of our colleagues.  You will experience high levels of ownership and empowerment in your role. 



The position is a temporary role to provide short-term cover for the absence of a Learning Support Integrator. The primary function of the role is supporting classroom teachers and subject specialists to identify, understand and address the learning needs of all of the young people in their classes, ensuring that each learner is engaged, confident and challenged to achieve. This involves working directly with teachers and learners, and offering support and guidance during curriculum planning meetings, whole staff professional learning, and development meetings. Learning Support Integrators spend the majority of their time collaborating with teachers, learners and parents focussing on ways to enhance learning for all. This collaboration may involve: observing, assessing, creating/monitoring/reviewing collaborative action plans, coaching, and modelling. 



  • Work with teachers to build capacity and awareness of pedagogical strategies to support learners with diverse needs.

  • Support teachers to differentiate and build an inclusive culture within the classroom.

  • Interpret specialist reports and produce learner profiles for teachers.

  • Work with parents, teachers and learners to develop collaborative action plans.

  • Make recommendations on admission applications.

  • Design and develop staff professional development workshops.

  • Utilise appropriate assessments to inform next step teaching.

  • Support teachers with assessment, analysis and evaluation.

  • Attend year group and subject meetings to facilitate discussion around learners.

  • Involvement in whole school events and activities as required. 



No two days are the same in this exciting diverse role. I am in school today at 7:30 am to prepare for an 8 am parent meeting. This is to review progress and collaborate around next steps. These meetings with parents are always powerful as they strengthen the home-school partnership. Next up is a review of some admissions applications to make recommendations on. A year group meeting follows, which involves facilitating discussions around a number of learners. After this is a team teaching session to model specific strategies outlined in the collaborative action plan. This is followed by lunch duty, which is a good opportunity to mingle with the learners.  After lunch, is our weekly Support Services team meeting to review learners and discuss concerns and interventions. Today I have a CCA (co-curricular activity) after school. I’ll be taking a group of learners mountain biking. It is always fun getting the learners out and about.



  • A relevant degree plus teaching qualification (or equivalent)

  • Higher degree or recognised professional qualification (preferred)

  • Working knowledge of the PYP, MYP, IGCSE and IBDP curricular (preferred)

  • Evidence of continued relevant professional development

  • Experience working with bilingual and multilingual learners and learners with diverse needs
