We have an exciting opportunity for a teacher to join our small team within one of our two specialist provision classes at Tulloch Primary School.
We are seeking a skilled teacher of pupils with a range of additional support needs (ASN).
As the ideal candidate, you will have experience of working with children with ASN of primary age, either within a mainstream or specialised setting.
An ability to show patience, understanding and a willingness to adapt to the needs of individual children is essential.
Knowledge of conditions of ASD and ADHD, along with a good understanding of global developmental delay is essential.
Experience of supporting children who display distressed and at times challenging behaviour in a calm consistent and restorative manner is also essential.
A knowledge or experience of using Makaton and/or other forms of supporting communication is preferred but not essential.
When completing your application for this post, please ensure that you provide contact details for two referees, including email addresses. One should be your current or most recent employer. If you are already employed as a teacher with Perth & Kinross Council, you are only required to provide 1 reference, which must be from your current Head Teacher.
As part of our safer recruitment measures, Perth & Kinross Council carries out rigorous checks on the right to work in the UK, qualifications, employment history, including references, and fitness to undertake the post.
Some jobs may have been traditionally carried out predominately by one gender, but we would encourage you to apply if you meet the requirements, irrespective of your gender.
Perth & Kinross Council welcomes applications from former armed forces personnel/reservists. Many of the skills picked up during your military career could be transferred directly into a role with local government.
