Secondary SEND Co-ordinator 

St. George’s the British International School, Duisburg-Düsseldorf, Germany.

St. George’s School seeks a well-qualified professional SEND Co-ordinator to work across our secondary school, to start in  August 2020.

The School

Serving the international community in Duisburg-Düsseldorf for over 15 years, St. George’s School combines an enriching curriculum with family orientated care. The school has grown from small beginnings into a thriving community of over 700 pupils, aged from 2-18 and representing a broad range of nationalities. 

The National Curriculum is taught throughout the school, and we offer the IB Diploma in our Sixth Form. 

One of a group of three schools located across Germany, St. George’s offers the successful applicant an exciting range of opportunities for professional development and growth across the school group. 

The Location

Located on a new, purpose built campus in the heart of Germany’s Rhine-Ruhr region, St. George’s School enjoys direct transport links to the cities of Düsseldorf and Duisburg, as well as to the greater Rhine-Ruhr area. 

Germany’s sixth largest city, Düsseldorf is a dynamic and vibrant cultural centre, with a large and diverse international community. Situated in the heart of Europe, Düsseldorf offers a high standard of living, as well as numerous opportunities for travel and cultural discovery. 

Düsseldorf airport is located only 15km from the school, with many daily flights to the UK, and high speed rail services connect Düsseldorf to a wide range of European destinations. 

The Role

We are seeking to appoint a qualified SEND Co-ordinator to work across our secondary school.

Our SEND provision is a developing area of the school and we are seeking a well qualified individual to support us in this development. Alongside monitoring the provision for pupils with special needs, the role will involve ensuring appropriate assessment and referral, as well as significant work with teaching staff to ensure that needs are met in the classroom. Coordination with Heads of Section and faculty leaders will be a key part of the role, as well as supporting teachers in their understanding and management of specific pupils’ needs. 

Please download our application pack for detailed information. 

Only applications made through the TES online portal will be considered.

We require additional information for your application, please upload the following documents via the supporting documents link:

Applications should be submitted by the closing date of 23rd February 2020. The school reserves the right to contact outstanding applicants in advance of this deadline.

St. George’s is committed to safeguarding and protecting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment. The successful applicant will therefore be subject to enhanced background checks.
