Teignmouth Community School 11-19

January 2025 (or earlier)

Ivy Education Trust is seeking to appoint an outstanding individual with drive, passion, enthusiasm and ambition to join Teignmouth Community School.

The SENDCO role is an exciting opportunity to take the lead in shaping a provision that makes high quality education accessible to all. You would be joining an ambitious and innovative leadership team who hold the best interests of young people at the heart of all they do: none more so than those who are considered ‘vulnerable’. The successful applicant will use evidence-based research and a mutually supportive approach to drive strategic change in making TCS a truly inclusive environment.

The successful candidate will be an innovative practitioner with the following attributes:

  • Ambition to make a difference to students’ learning and outcomes
  • Genuine enthusiasm for the subject
  • Resilience
  • Ability to inspire and work within a team
  • Ability to challenge and support colleagues
  • Ability to work under pressure
  • Excellent communication skills

You will have high expectations of student achievement and behaviour, good communication skills and a commitment to working as part of a team.

Completed application forms should be submitted before the closing date stated below.

Closing date for applications is Monday 12th August at 9am. Interviews will be arranged once applications have been shortlisted.

Suitable candidates may be interviewed before the closing date and the trust reserves the rights to withdraw the position if an early appointment is made. Applicants are therefore encouraged to apply early.
