We also provide diagnostic, assessment and rehabilitation services to children and young people and work closely with distinguished organisations like Great Ormond Street Hospital and University College London.
We are looking for an individual, with a qualification in teaching young people who have special needs, to take responsibility for the teaching, learning and pastoral care of a class group.
You will plan and teach well-structured lessons to meet individual learning needs, using the appropriated strategies to demonstrate and monitor student progression. You will ensure that students will achieve in relation to their prior attainment, and make good progress, in-line with others in similar settings. You will also take responsibility for the line management of the staff team working with the class group.
As well as holding qualified teacher status or equivalent, you will have recent experience of working within a special or mainstream school, combined with a good working knowledge of the National Curriculum and its assessment. You will be an excellent classroom practitioner, able to communicate appropriately at all levels, with an excellent team work ethic. Early years’ experience would also be beneficial.
