Permanent SEND Teacher role - Windsor

Location: Maidenhead
Job Type: Contract
Industry: SEN
Reference: PE11263890
Salary: £130 - £170 per day
Job Published: 15 days ago
We Are looking for a SEN/mainstream qualified Teacher based in the Slough/Windsor area for a SEN School. We are looking for experienced, highly motivated and enthusiastic individuals with a real desire and commitment for teaching children with SEN. Although we are looking for SEN teachers, we are open to teachers from a mainstream background who may have taught SEN children in a mainstream class, or if you have taught in a separate SEN provision. Limited experience of SEN is still considered.

The Role

Ideally, you will have outstanding interpersonal and behaviour management skills, have high expectations, and be fully committed to supporting opportunities for students with Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs).

Class sizes are limited to a maximum of 10 students with multiple teaching assistants, so you would be teaching far fewer students then if you were in a mainstream school, which subsequently means less marking and planning but also means you have a more intimate and personal teacher to learner experience. Feedback from teachers who convert from mainstream to SEN settings often find the role much more fulfilling and rewarding.

In addition, we find Teachers with a creative background work particularly well within a SEN Setting, because creative teaching works with the sensory needs of the students. SEN schools often use art and music-based therapies and activities to development the students.
The learning style in a SEN setting is more vocational then academic, from swimming to trampolining, gardening to spending time in a sensory room.

Requirements:
-Must be confident to support young people between ages 11-19 in developing their skills.
-Have QTS or equivalent.
-Experience in teaching children with behaviour or complex learning difficulties.
-Passionate about working in SEN.
-Be able to provide a valid DBS on the update service or be willing to apply for one
-Be able to provide 2 references from most recent employers.

To apply for this position, you must be a qualified teacher and have an up to date DBS or be prepared to carry out a new DBS application.
