We are looking for enthusiastic teachers who are committed to excellence and ready to work in a dynamic part of Scotland to deliver quality education to assigned pupils and contribute, within collegiate ethos, to the professional life of the school in relation to pupils, staff and appropriate external bodies within the agreements of the Local Negotiating Committee for Teachers and the Scottish Negotiating Committee for Teachers.

This is a network post.  Although the vacancy is for the Inverurie Cluster, the hours are currently allocated to the Enhanced Provision centre at Strathburn Primary school.  Young people within our Enhanced Provision setting have more complex needs than their mainstream classmates, and require a nurturing environment where they can learn through a more flexible curriculum pathway.  If successful in being appointed, you will be responsible for providing specialist interventions, and a tailored curriculum that can be delivered in partnership with other providers.  They key to this post is providing the right support, in the right place, at the right time, and enabling young people to access learning.  This may include (but is not restricted to) direct work on communication, language and number development, and work within Strathburn school or on an outreach basis to other schools within our network.  The young people you will get to know and work with may require support to work around a range of barriers to learning including (but not restricted to) Autism, Dyslexia, physical and/or medical needs, mental health conditions, and sensory needs.

Salary for this post will be in accordance with SNCT agreements. Applicants must be or eligible to be fully GTC Scotland registered.
