Permanent | Full Time



Do you have a passion for enriching the education of special needs students?

An opportunity has arisen for you to immediately join the dedicated team at a school in the Hawkesley area as a full-time SEND Teacher where you will be enriching lives and unlocking potential in the students. The children are largely non-verbal with ASD and require a picture-based communication system (PECS).

You can commute easily from Walkers Heath, Northfield, King’s Norton, Rednal, Cotteridge, Bournville and Central Birmingham where you will be joining a school where all staff and pupils treat one another with respect and form positive relationships which ensure a happy and safe atmosphere!

What will you be doing?

  • Providing motivation and guidance to help pupils overcome obstacles in their learning
  • Offering 1:1 support where necessary
  • Coach students on a wide range of academic and pastoral topics
  • Having an in-depth knowledge of the difficulties parents face and never underestimating the journey they are on
You will be able to start in the role immediately on a full-time basis where you will be paid to scale from M1 – U3 dependant on your experience and qualifications.

This is the perfect opportunity if you have a passion for supporting children and young people with their development with special requirements!

About you:

You will have knowledge on the school curriculum and learning stages and hold QTS. You will also have significant experience of working with SEND pupils with ASD/ADHD needs both 1:1 and in small groups, and a working knowledge of teaching targets from the broad areas of need within SEND, including targets from EHCPs and SSPPs.

Ideally you will have an in-date DBS registered to the update service; if you do not hold this, we can arrange for you at a cost of £44, which is refundable once you have completed ten days in your new role.

Beneficial traits for this role include patience, resilience and approachability; you also need to have the ability to communicate effectively with the SENDCO, class teacher, external agencies and parents about SEND pupils learning and progress.

What are the benefits of working with us?

You will be working for a Crown Commercial Services (CCS) approved supplier with a team full of education experts! You will be paired with a dedicated consultant who will work closely with you to find the perfect employment opportunity to suit your needs and requirements.
