VACANCY for Teacher of the Deaf from September 2019. -are you seeking a change of career then read on!

This is a peripatetic teaching post full time (1FTE) working in the west area of Cornwall and some settings in Mid Cornwall , based in Camborne

For teachers who do not hold the mandatory qualification, there is an expectation that the Distance Education course is completed successfully.  The post is temporary for two years (until August 2021) and subject to satisfactory performance management reviews.  It is anticipated that the post will be made permanent on the completion of the Teacher of the Deaf qualification. 

The Hearing Support Team is part of the Sensory Support Service and operates as a countywide team and has a successful record of inclusion of children and young people with hearing impairment within mainstream schools and supports those in specialist provisions. Team members work closely with staff from the other SEN Support Services, working collaboratively to support settings to deliver positive outcomes for children and young people in Cornwall. Working with children and young people from birth to twenty-five years, the Team has good working relationships with a wide range of agencies.  A very high priority is given to in-service training and staff development and regular opportunities are given to meet other members of the team.

The job will provide challenging and stimulating work across the age range and in a range of settings. The role is varied and will include direct teaching of pupils with hearing impairment, assessment of their needs and advice sharing with settings.

This position will be subject to an enhanced criminal record disclosure check.

This is a public/customer-facing role, where the statutory English language requirement for public sector workers applies

Cornwall Council is committed to safeguarding and is an equal opportunities employer.
