Required for September 2018 (or April 2018), a suitably qualified teacher to manage the successful Special Educational Needs Department which caters for a range of student needs. We have an excellent reputation for supporting pupils with dyslexia and other learning needs. As a result approximately 50% of our student cohort receives additional support for their learning needs. Our class sizes are small, averaging less than 10 pupils per class and advanced SEN training is provided to all teachers. That said, we have high expectations of all of our students, the majority of whom remain at the school for 6th Form and successfully gain entrance to universities.
As a Boarding School, St David’s College attracts pupils from a range of countries, predominantly UK based. The SENCO is required to work closely with the Local Authorities and as a result should be familiar with the changes to the Special Needs/Additional Needs Code of Practice in both Wales and England in particular.
All teachers at St David’s College are expected to contribute to our particularly strong programme of sports, outdoor education and/or other extracurricular activities.
St David’s College was founded on Christian principles and continues to promote them today. Many teachers live on site and the supportive residential community makes St David’s College a very special place to live, learn and work. Opportunities often arise for teaching staff to move into the boarding community.
The school is located on a beautiful historic campus nestled between Snowdonia and the Irish Sea.
The closing date for applications is Sunday 11 February 2018
