We are looking for a positive, flexible, compassionate person to join our friendly team at this brand new independent special school for 12 pupils, which openedin September. We have exciting opportunities for applicants who wish to develop their skills and experience in this area, as you will be designing and delivering a tailor-made curriculum for a child or small group, with support from the class teacher. Children are in classes / key groups of 4 and will be taught in these small groups or on a one to one basis. Lessons and activities will be at the school and around the local area, using specialist support teams for extra curricular activities and you will be required to transport and accompany children to these. Ownership and use of a car full time, as well as a full driving license, is therefore essential. Pupils are aged between 6 and 16 years of age.
The successful applicants will need to have substantial recent school based experience including supporting and teaching pupils with SEN.
This is a great opportunity to develop skills in working with SEN pupils in a special school setting. A positive amount of energy, a commitment to working as part of a team, being teachable and to developing your own skills are essential.
