JOB DESCRIPTION

A growing number of children and young people in the UK are being identified as having Special Educational Needs (SEN) whether academic, physical, mental health/medical or behavioural. Many improvements have been made to support these children within specialist provisions such as Complex Needs Schools and Pupil Referral Units (PRUs). These developments have led to an increase in the demand for qualified Teachers.

The benefits of Teaching in a SEN setting include:

  • SEN points in addition to your annual salary of up to £4000
  • Teaching small classes of up to 10 students, sometimes on a one to one basis
  • A high ratio of staff to students
  • A creative and practical learning environment
  • Working in collaboration with a range of specialists (e.g. therapists and counsellors)
  • Gaining relevant qualifications e.g. Makaton, PECs, TEACCH, Team Teach
  • CPD with comparatively fast career progression

To be successful in a SEN school or PRU you will need:

  • QTS (or comparable qualifications to teach in the UK)
  • A dynamic and creative approach to teaching
  • An ability to engage students and promote independence
  • A good general understanding of SEN and additional needs
  • Or a good general understanding of Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties (SEBD)
  • A willingness to learn and develop your own knowledge and skill set

SEN challenges vary from day to day but the rewards are high…

Is SEN for you?

  • Yes, if you want a personalised teaching career where you are 100% considered in decision making for the pupils and the whole school life.
  • Yes, if you are keen to develop a good working relationship with the Senior Leadership Team who are very supportive and will heavily promote relevant CPD.
  • Yes, if you are a primary and/or secondary trained teacher
  • Yes, if you have previous SEN experience whether it's substantial or minimal with Severe to Mild Needs, Autism and/or Social and Emotional Needs.
  • Yes, if you are looking to commit long term to outstanding schools where the range of subjects and high quality additional therapies supports students' learning and personal development well
