Across Trinity Multi Academy Trust there is a relentless focus on improvement.  With that vision in mind, we have worked in partnership with local providers, to open a brand new Sixth Form Academy from September 2020.  Initially accommodating up to 600 students, it will grow to a capacity of 1000 learners to meet increased demand.  The new provision is in the multi-million-pound refurbishment of the Northgate site in central Halifax.  

This is a unique opportunity to be part of a transformational project, designed to allow more young people to benefit from an outstanding sixth form provision in a state-of-the-art new building.  Aspirations and ambitions are high and the potential huge. 

We are now looking for a Safeguarding & Welfare Manager to join our team.  This is a varied role; you will play a key role in child protection processes including acting as an academy Designated Child Protection Officer, managing the medical needs of students in line with academy policy and procedures, maintaining accurate student medical records, co-ordinating programmes of support for identified students within college and supporting the development of programmes which focus on students’ attitudinal and academic development. 

What can we offer you? 

  • Full support from a friendly team 
  • Support with development and career progression 
  • A range of staff benefits including cycle to work scheme, optional health scheme and access to the West Yorkshire Pension Fund. 

What we need? 

  • 5 or more GCSE’s at grade C or above, including English and Maths (or equivalent) 
  • First aid qualification with experience of administering first aid 
  • Experience of successfully working with young people (of a relevant age) 
  • Experience of working in a busy organisation and dealing with confidential matters 
  • Experience of working with young people with medical or other needs would be an advantage but is not essential. 

You must be fully committed to optimising the opportunities that are available to children and young people, secure in the knowledge that you will be joining an ambitious forward-thinking Academy Trust that sets the standards for our family of schools and academies.
