A further qualification in either Science or Design & Technology would be advantageous along with a genuine interest in these subjects.
Experience of complex physical and medical needs is desirable, however an aspiration to enable students to learn and achieve meaningful independence is essential.
We offer a supportive, friendly working environment in a country school setting and the chance to make a real and positive impact on the lives of Valence students.
