Job summary

Seven Hills School requires a Full Time Class Teacher. This appointment is temporary in the first instance until August 2022 to meet the current needs of the school.

The successful applicant may be required to work in either phase 1, phase 2 or phase 3.
This will be dependent on the needs of the school following the successful promotion of an existing class teacher.

In Phase 1 students spend the majority of their time with their class teacher, based in their own classroom. The emphasis in Phase 1 is on basic skills and in providing a wide variety of educational experiences.

In Phase 2 the emphasis is on gaining suitable accreditation. Students follow a range of formally accredited courses in line with their level of need. The majority of these courses culminate in nationally recognised qualifications e.g. Entry Level Functional Skills qualifications or AQA Unit Awards.

In Phase 3 the emphasis is on gaining independence, broadening experience of the local community and preparation for adulthood and the next steps of students’ education.

You will work as class tutor for pupils with severe learning difficulties and be committed to providing rich and challenging learning experiences across the curriculum. All pupils at Seven Hills School have learning difficulties and many have other associated difficulties relating to communication, behaviour, sensory, physical and/or medical disabilities. In common with many other special schools, pupils admitted have increasingly complex needs and some have challenging behaviour.

An ability to establish excellent relationships with students and deliver a wide range of subjects to students with very low level learning is essential. The successful applicant will be expected to teach students with a range of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. There may also be the opportunity for some specialist subject teaching across the school so please specify areas where you could deliver high quality subject teaching in your application.

Ideally the person appointed will have relevant experience/qualifications within SEND and be an enthusiastic, committed and a skilled professional. However, colleagues from both primary and secondary mainstream backgrounds with a willingness to learn will also be considered. An up to date Team Teach qualification or a willingness to train for this will be essential. Applicants should be comfortable working as part of an experienced team of teaching and support staff and specialist professional colleagues.

This posts would suit professionals who are passionate about innovation in teaching and learning especially in the specialist sector. It will require resilient and highly effective teachers who are committed to providing stimulating and engaging learning activities and who are able to use visual support to structure learning and classroom organisation.
