Special Needs Teacher
- SEN Teacher (SLD)
- 1 Year Contract
- Hounslow LA
- Full time
- Starting ASAP
- Permanent Contract Available
- Pay depending on experience
A large special needs (SEN) school based in Hounslow, West London is seeking a special needs teacher with some recent SLD experience to join their team from April. This will be an initial maternity contract and the school are keen to ensure that the new Special Needs Teacher has a handover for the month of December before taking over the running of the class in the new year. Ideally the successful applicant will have a experience working in an SEN environment and a proven track record as a successful, creative and dynamic class teacher who manages their time well and pushes hard to ensure students meet their potential. The Headteacher will consider a primary trained teacher with a passion for SEN, a proven track record as a teacher and a can do attitude.
The successful Special Needs Teacher applicant will be teaching a mixed KS1 class (6 pupils) with Autism (ASD) and Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD.) The majority of the children have additional medical and sensory needs as well as physical impairments. The class consists of 6 pupils who are all working at P levels, as a result experience of the EYFS curriculum would be advantageous, though not essential. Much of the work you would be doing will be based loosely on the Early Years curriculum with a particular focus on developing social and communication skills. You will be working alongside two really friendly learning support assistants (LSAs) who know the children and the school procedures and will help you get up to speed quickly. Some experience of PECS and makaton would be advantageous but training is available
The successful Special Needs Teacher candidate will be flexible, with the ability to use their own initiative where required. Experience working in an SEN school or with SLD children would be an advantage but the school are clear that they want a good teacher first and foremost - excellent training is available. They would be more than happy to support an excellent practitioner with passion for SEN but limited SEN experience.
Progress with these pupils can be slow when compared to their contemporaries so patience, a caring nature, passion for the job and strong self belief will be essential.
If this exciting opportunity to work in an outstanding Hounslow Special Needs School appeals to you please send your up to date CV today - interviews will be taking place straight after half term.
