The School in Dorking is a Surrey Local Authority maintained boarding/day school which provides for fifty boys with severe social, emotional, and mental health difficulties aged 11-16 years. Many of our pupils are conduct disordered, presenting extreme challenging behaviour.

• Assessing individual learning needs and working on a group basis.

• Preparing materials, equipment and lessons

• Assessing and reporting on individual pupils' progress

• Assisting with the personal care needs of pupils; this may include feeding, changing and manual handling.

• Liaising with parents, carers and professionals such as mainstream teachers, education welfare officers, social workers and Healthcare professionals

The successful candidates need to have previous experience of working with SEN students and have a strong desire of getting involved in every aspect of the school.

Other experience & qualifications desirable:

• Team Teach/MAPA qualified

• Positive handling

• Restorative justice

• First Aid trained

Successful Applicants will be subject to references and an up to date DBS or be willing to apply for a Protocol DBS.

Here is a snippet of what Protocol can offer you:

Guaranteed Worker Pay - (GWP)

Looking for a bit of job security, but unsure about committing to a role sight unseen? A Guaranteed Work Agreement (GWA) could be for you.

If you want to work as much as possible for your first term in the UK, but can also see the appeal of settling into life in England through daily supply, GWA provides

the perfect balance. It’s a simple solution: we’ll guarantee you a set number of days of supply work per term, in return for your exclusive

commitment to Protocol Education for the duration of the agreement. Easy!

CPD

Every teacher registered with Protocol Education in the UK has access to a whole range of continuing professional development (CPD) courses, with many based around

improving your knowledge of special educational needs (SEN).

While you’re increasing your experience in the classroom, these courses will help you build skills and expand your career in new directions.
