About the Role
Are you passionate about making a positive difference to the lives of vulnerable children?
Are you a qualified teacher with current experience of working with students on a mainstream SEND register who have additional needs?
Do you have specific experience of working with pupils who have communication and interaction needs? Do you hold an additional qualification in this area?
Do you have experience and skills you would like to share with colleagues in schools?
Would you like to work with colleagues for whom reducing barriers to learning for pupils with SEND is a priority?
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.
As part of a team working with pupils from Early Years to Key Stage 4, 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. Experience of working within a language unit attached to a mainstream school and / or an additional qualification in the needs of pupils with language and communication difficulties or SEND 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.
