Hove Park School and Sixth Form is an ambitious and innovative place to work. We firmly believe that all young people deserve the opportunity to succeed, regardless of any Special Educational Need or Disability (SEND). Ofsted visited us in March 2017 and we strongly held our status as a ‘Good’ school. Our student body is multi-lingual and drawn from a diverse community across Brighton and Hove.
We are looking to appoint a highly motivated, enthusiastic and committed professional to join our SEND team and contribute to the development of our Cullum Centre (Resourced Provision for students with a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Condition).
As an experienced teacher in this area, you will possess a commitment for inclusion, a passion for overcoming barriers to learning and a belief that through working with children and young people we can maximise their potential to lead happy, healthy and fulfilled lives. You will show initiative, good communication skills and an aptitude for supporting and teaching students with ASC.
A Specialist Teacher of ASC will support the academic and personal development of children and young people through identifying and addressing their needs. They will understand that ASC is a spectrum, meaning that the needs of individuals are also on a spectrum and will not be identical. As a specialist ASC teacher you should have the skills and experience in order to accurately identify and address an individual's needs across the four areas mentioned in the SEND code of practice (2015).
Deadline for applications: Sunday, 18th April 2021
