Teacher (SEN) - Bradford

If you aspire to help children with complex needs achieve their potential - this SEN Teacher role could be suited to you.

Due to an increase in pupil numbers, a special school in Bradford are looking to appoint a teacher in September, on a full time basis. The school caters for pupils aged 11-16 with Special Educational Needs including Autism, Moderate and Severe Learning Disabilities and Global Developmental Delay. Although secondary aged, the majority of pupils follow a Primary model of learning, with class teachers delivering lessons across the curriculum.

As a special educational needs (SEN) teacher you will be required to work with children who require an advanced programme of learning in order to reach their full educational potential. A key aspect of working in this field is identifying individual needs and being responsible for creating a safe, stimulating and supportive learning environment. You will work alongside key professionals including an on-site medical team, physiotherapists and Speech and Language Therapists to implement bespoke learning programmes. You will have a sound understanding of working with young people with Education, Health and Care Plans.

Qualifications/Skills

Applications will be considered from Newly Qualified or Fully Qualified Teachers with both Primary and Secondary specialisms. You will be welcomed into a large staff team and will be fully supported by experienced, class based Learning Support Assistants. Experience of planning lessons to meet the needs of SEN pupils within a mainstream or specialist classroom is essential.

You may also have received training in PECS, Makaton, TEACCH, and/or Team Teach - however this is not essential. Teaching Personnel hold regular CPD events to support your transition into Special Needs Teaching - please contact us to find out more!

You will need to show:

  • Commitment to working with pupils with special educational needs
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills - you will be working as part of a large, multi-disciplinary team
  • Adaptability - it is important to be able to respond to the needs of the children and change plans accordingly
  • A positive, energetic and enthusiastic outlook
  • Patience, understanding and empathy with pupils and parents

Responsibilities

As an SEN Teacher, you will:

  • Prepare lessons and resources
  • Develop and adapt conventional teaching methods to meet the individual needs of pupils
  • Use special equipment and facilities, such as audiovisual materials and computers to stimulate interest in learning
  • Collaborate with the senior staff to define appropriate activities for the pupils in relation to the curriculum
  • Liaise with other professionals, such as Social Workers, Speech and Language Therapists, Physiotherapists and Educational Psychologists
  • Organise learning outside the classroom in activities such as community visits, school outings or sporting events
  • Assist in meeting the personal care and/or medical needs of pupils
  • Carry out administrative tasks, including updating and maintaining records of pupils' progress
  • Effectively manage behaviour
