Do you have experience teaching Children with Special education needs and disabilities?
Are you passionate about teaching children in a Special Education Needs environment?
Are you motivated, resilient and have a real drive to help children thrive and build their self-esteem and confidence?
Horizon Teachers have been successfully supporting Special Educational Needs schools, Secondary Schools, Provisions, Primary, Early years and Nursery Settings throughout London for the past 10 years. We are experts in our field, and have helped skilled Teachers and support staff find homes in these settings and we would love to find you one too. These roles can be on a long term, short term or even day to day basis, it's up to you! Our commitment has and always will be to the children that attend these education environments, and we want our staff to be able to give them the best quality education and experience they can, no matter what.
I am looking for Passionate and dedicated Specialist Teachers to support in Complex needs settings in the South East London.
Children with complex needs require support in every aspect of their lives not only in School.
A number of special and tailored approaches are used to teach pupils at the schools and students benefit from working as a class group and a 1-1 basis. Their learning curriculum will be adapted and a huge majority of the children will be learning at lower levels. Complex Needs can be anything from those with co-existing conditions (e.g. autism and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder) challenging behaviours to other significant difficulties such as physical disabilities, communication issues, sensory impairment or a severe medical condition. Children with complex needs can have a physical impairment along with their learning disability, so pupils benefit from lots of positive interaction, play, strong behaviour management, and support to enhance their communication and independence skills.

To be a Successful Teacher supporting students in these settings, you must have:
·Ability to adapt planning to suit the needs of the Children in your class.
·Strong behaviour management skills.
·Excellent Team work skills.
·Knowledge of Special education needs and previous experience teaching children in similar settings would be desirable.
·Excellent communication skills - you will need to liaise with multiple agencies, parents, staff and other key support people in their lives as well as the children themselves.
·Passion to see children thrive, grow and ultimately enjoy their education experience.
·Love for what you do. These children are joyful, funny, creative, strong, wonderful individuals and they need people on their team who will celebrate this.

In return you will get:

·The opportunity to work with a fantastic group of children, who want to spend time with you, learn, and make their school experience a happy one.
·Smaller class sizes.
·On the job support from a skilled and dedicated leadership and staff team.
·To learn new skills.
·Relevant training and development opportunities.
·Work alongside therapists/councillors and health professionals.
