About WSAPC
West Sussex Alternative Provision College (WSAPC) is an educational establishment based across the county on seven separate sites. We provide education to young people who are not accessing mainstream education. We aim to provide a caring and positive environment where all are valued and supported through a personalised curriculum which challenges and inspires individuals to achieve their potential.
The College is rated as ‘Good’ following a recent Ofsted visit in March 2018 and our focus now, is to move from Good to Outstanding.
What we are looking for
This is an exciting time to join the team at Burgess Hill as a Teacher of Food because we are set to have new professional kitchen installed. Not only that but we plan to launch ‘Cook to Eat’ from September 2021.

It is our vision that, from September 2021, all students in Secondary and Primary will engage in regular Food lessons, in which they will prepare lunch for staff and students every day, whilst also working towards qualifications. Food will therefore become a significant part of our timetable, our vocational to students, and a big part of what develops the collaborative, community feeling, that we strive to have in our centres.

The ideal candidate for this post will be willing to take on the challenge of managing our new kitchen, leading on the delivery of Cook to Eat at Burgess Hill, alongside all the normal responsibilities expected of the role in alternative provision. The candidate will also need to ensure relevant health, hygiene, fire and safety regulations are understood and followed by all. This will include being responsible for monitoring food hygiene standards within the kitchen and following very robust cleaning.


We are looking for someone who is passionate about providing outstanding lessons for young people who may present with challenging behaviour. You will possess a good understanding of pupils with complex needs and display the confidence needed to work with pupil’s who experience social, emotional and mental health challenges.


You will have:
• Relevant experience with Special Educational Needs, preferably SEMH.
• Experience of leading food lessons.
• Excellent ICT skills
• Relevant and recent professional development conducive to the post.
• Experience of contributing to successful Ofsted outcomes.

We can offer:
• Invaluable experience of working in an Alternative Provision setting
• Opportunity to work in a rewarding and vibrant team environment
• Full support and ongoing training
• Opportunities to progress and work interdepartmentally
• Inclusion in our School Wellbeing strategy
