Job description

Are you a qualified or newly qualified teacher wanting to improve the lives of young people with Special Educational Needs?

Here at Teaching Personnel we are looking for a Teacher for students with Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC) ranging between 11-16 years old. The school is based in Sheffield and we are looking for qualified or newly qualified teachers to become a part of this exceptional provision. You will be part of creating a fun, lively and stimulating learning environment for pupils who have learning difficulties and additional complex needs. Students will be at different stages in their education and benefit most from lessons that are creative and accessible.

While this role is a more challenging one it is highly rewarding; really being able to make an impact on children and help them grow. Class sizes are smaller than in mainstream and you will receive support from Specialist Teaching Assistants.

A candidate that would stand out would have prior experience with individuals with additional needs, but this doesn't have to be school based. Relevant experience could be in care settings, voluntary work or personal experience.

What do Teaching Personnel Offer?

  • Valuable accredited training courses such as Team Teach, teaching positive de-escalation techniques for behaviour management, and Moving and Handling which is the safe movement of children with additional needs in and around the classroom
  • A temp-to-perm scheme which can see you gain a permanent contract within a school after 20 weeks of seeing if it is the right fit for you
  • The opportunity for newly qualified teachers to build on their experience within specialist settings
  • Online courses to improve your knowledge of SEND
  • The flexibility to try different roles to see what suits you best!

What do you need?

  • You must hold a teaching qualification in order to apply
  • Short term or long term availability- we have opportunities for both
  • A Child Workforce DBS on the Update Service (or be willing to apply for one)
  • Prior experience supporting individuals with additional needs is preferred (e.g. care settings, university placements, youth work, and voluntary work)

If you would be interested in this role please give me a call on 0114 241 3341 for more information- I look forward to hearing from you!
