About the Role

Would you like to work in a friendly, supportive team where reducing barriers to learning for pupils with SEND is key?

Working across Key Stages 1 – 4 as part of a team, no two days will be the same. Whether you are increasing a school’s capacity to meet the needs of pupils with SEND through systemic work' delivery of quality training, support to the SEN department, modelling group work or following a consultation model around a pupil with complex needs, each new location gives you an opportunity to build effective working relationships which help schools to “Narrow the Gap”. As a centrally employed teacher working for Surrey County Council, you will work in partnership with schools, families and other professionals delivering a quality service which impacts positively on outcomes for pupils.

You will be a qualified teacher with excellent interpersonal and communication skills. An additional qualification in the needs of pupils with SEMH or Learning and Language difficulties would be to your advantage.
