About the role
Are you passionate about making a positive difference to the lives of vulnerable children?
Do you have experience and skills you would like to share with colleagues in schools?
Would you like to work in a friendly, supportive team where reducing barriers to learning for pupils with SEND is key?
The role of Specialist Teacher for Inclusive Practice will present a unique opportunity for the right individual to use their knowledge, skills and experience to support local schools in the delivery of a curriculum that will extend the learning of pupils with SEND across the key stages.
Working across Key Stages 1 – 4, as part of a team, no two days will be the same. Whether you are developing a school's capacity to meet the needs of pupils with SEND through systemic work, delivering quality training, supporting the SEN department, modelling group work or following a consultation model around a pupil with complex needs, each new location gives you an opportunity to build effective working relationships which help schools to "narrow the gap". As a centrally employed teacher working for Surrey County Council, you will work in partnership with schools, families and other professionals delivering a quality service which impacts positively on outcomes for pupils.
You will be a qualified teacher with excellent interpersonal and communication skills. An additional qualification in the needs of pupils with SEMH or Learning and Language difficulties would be to your advantage. You will need to have a sound knowledge of current educational issues, the SEND Code of Practice as well as a clean driving license and use of a car for business purposes.
To be shortlisted for interview to this post, your application and personal statement will clearly evidence:
- Your prior experiencing in identifying and teaching pupils with SEND.
- Your understanding of current educational issues and the language, learning and SEMH difficulties that might impact upon a pupil's ability to make progress in their learning.
- Examples of how you have facilitated developments within a curriculum area to improve learning opportunities for pupils.
- How you have supported the professional development of other teachers or teaching assistants.
- The ways in which you promote active and purposeful links with parents and carers.
For an informal discussion about the role please contact Sally Wade NW Senior Specialist Teacher for Inclusive Practice 01483 519359.
We look forward to receiving your application.
