Vision for Education are looking for an experienced SEND Secondary Teacher for long term, temporary work in a vibrant SEND school in Teesside.

This school has a real pride in the children’s development and learning, supported by a strong ethos, high expectations, and supportive teaching and support staff.

About this role:

A special educational needs (SEND) teacher is specifically employed to work with children and young people who need extra support, or require an advanced programme of learning in order to reach their full educational potential.

SEND teachers may work with individuals who have physical disabilities, sensory impairments (i.e. hearing or visual), speech and language difficulties, learning difficulties such as dyslexia, conditions such as autism, social, emotional and mental health needs, or have a combination of these difficulties.

A SEND teacher may also work with gifted and talented individuals.

A key aspect of working in this field is identifying individual needs and being responsible for creating a safe, stimulating and supportive learning environment.


The work of a SEND teacher is often challenging and varied and may involve:

  • teaching either individuals or small groups of pupils within, or outside the class; 
  • preparing lessons and resources; 
  • marking and assessing work; 
  • developing and adapting conventional teaching methods to meet the individual needs of pupils; 
  • using special equipment and facilities, such as audio-visual materials and computers to stimulate interest in learning; 
  • using specialist skills, such as teaching Braille to pupils with visual impairments or sign language and lip reading to students who have hearing impairments; 
  • assessing children who have long or short-term learning difficulties and working with colleagues to identify individual pupils' special needs; 
  • liaising with other professionals, such as social workers, speech and language therapists, physiotherapists and educational psychologists; 
  • assisting in severely disabled pupils' personal care/medical needs; 
  • administration, including updating and maintaining records of pupils' progress; 
  • behaviour management. 

Vision for Education will support you by:

  • Excellent daily rates paid weekly through PAYE 
  • Access to free CPD such as Team Teach, Autism Awareness and Moving and Handling qualifications 
  • £50 reward every time you recommend a colleague 
  • Support throughout your placements 
  • Access to a dedicated SEND consultant 7 days a week 
  • Full compliance with AWR (Agency Worker Regulations) to make sure you get paid what you deserve 
  • Pension Contributions (subject to qualifying period) 

Full employment history is needed.
