We are seeking to appoint the following post as soon as possible
Director of Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) SENCo
This brand new post at Hills Road Sixth Form College represents a really exciting career opportunity for an experienced SENCo with great knowledge and understanding of academic post-16 provision.
With recent growth to 2,500 students, all studying a three A level programme minimum, we want to make sure that all students are supported to fulfil their potential, by identifying and understanding any barriers to learning. As a staff team, we want to work alongside them to allow them to thrive at the College, to achieve independence and to go on to access their first choice destination post-A levels whether that be in the world of work or on to higher education.
With Exam Access Arrangement numbers continuing to climb, the preparation and logistics for supporting students appropriately through exam season are a significant part of the role and we will want our new SENCo to lead on this important area of student support, as well as being a beacon of good practice in supporting the whole College team to deliver “quality first” teaching experiences for all of our students.
We are looking for an exceptional person with a strong track record of strategic and operational delivery for specialist support provision within a school or College setting to lead us in delivering on this goal. If you think this could be you, we’d love to hear from you. If you’d like to get in touch for an informal chat with the Deputy Principal (Nicki Dartnell) email Nicki on firstname.lastname@example.org or call Nicki on (01223) 278054
Salary Spine Point 54 (£45,161 per annum) pro rata for term time plus 2 weeks (£40,819)
