Tendring Technology is a key member of The Academies Enterprise Trust (AET), a multi-Academy sponsor which aims to provide the opportunity for all young learners to fulfil their real potential, broaden their horizons and become active, prosperous and successful citizens in the world around them.  The College is a large successful 11-18 mixed comprehensive school, which has two campuses; Frinton Campus (KS4 & KS5) and Thorpe Campus (KS3) with approx. 5 miles between sites.

The College welcomes all children who would cope with and benefit from a mainstream secondary curriculum.  Students with particular special educational needs are supported as appropriate by extra help in lessons, by having some tuition in small groups, and in some cases by personal tuition.  Students with physical disabilities are given every possible support and encouragement to achieve access to the mainstream curriculum.  All students with special educational needs participate fully and we believe successfully, in the College community throughout their time here.

Following the reorganisation of the Curriculum Access Team, we are currently advertising for an Area of Need Leader and Curriculum Access Practioner.

This dual role will require you to work closely with the SENDCO, Assistant SENDCO and other Area of Need Leaders as part of a professional team.  You will need to take responsibility for the progress and outcomes of the students within your team alongside the SENDCO.  There will be a greater level of responsibility for this post, with the preferred candidate being able to assess, record and report on the progress of the SEND students.  You will need to meet with parents and outside agencies as well as delivering interventions to support the progress of SEND pupils. As a Curriculum Access Practitioner you will take your expertise into the classroom to support young people with sensory or physical needs or in delivering a range of interventions.

We encourage visits from prospective candidates to meet members of our school community and to experience our school at first hand.  If you would like to do this please contact Julia McFarlane at the College on 01255 682040.

AET believes that each and every child is inspired to choose a remarkable life.  Our mission is to gather and motivate inspirational people committed to delivering an excellent education that launches children into remarkable lives.  

Our values are:

  • Be unusually brave
  • Discover what’s possible
