We Are looking for a SEN/mainstream qualified Teacher based in the South Yorkshire 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.


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.

If you believe this role is fit for you and is of your interest, please do not hesitate to contact Frances on 0114 252 1975. Alternatively, you can send me an updated version of your CV to frances.albert@protocol-education.com

Please note: We undertake safeguarding checks on all our workers in accordance with the DfE statutory guidance 'Keeping Children Safe in Education'. As part of these checks, we require a current Enhanced DBS Disclosure for everyone working in schools. If you do not have a valid subscription to the DBS Update Service, we will require you to complete a new DBS application as part of the registration process, at a cost of £44.00.
