Both are + 1 or 2 SENpoints dependent on whether you hold the Mandatory Qualification for Teachers of Children and Young People with Hearing Impairment (MQVI) and/or Mandatory Qualification for Teachers of Children and Young People with Multisensory Impairment (MQMSI).

This is a part-time position at 4 days per week (26 hours) with an anticipated start date of 4th January 2022 (or earlier).

We, Physical and Sensory Support (PSS) with Surrey County Council, are looking to recruit to the role of Advisory Teacher for Hearing Impairment (ATHI) to work on 4 days.

We are a body of professionals within Education and Lifelong Learning under the Vulnerable Learners team within the directorate for Children, Families and Lifelong Learning.

We work with children and students from 0-25 (and beyond) with physical disability (PD) and/or sensory impairment (SI) i.e. multisensory impairment (MSI), hearing impairment (HI), vision impairment (VI) and/or who use assistive technology (AT) and devices for augmentative and alternative communication (AAC).

The Team

We are made up of Specialist Teachers, Specialist Teaching Assistants, a Specialist Speech and Language Therapist for AAC, a Deaf Instructor, Student Support Workers, a Specialist HI Technician for audiology, an Audiologist in education, a Specialist VI Technician, BSL Interpreters and an Administration team underpinning the work we do.

Our Goal and Purpose

Our work on behalf of Surrey County Council and directed at children and students with PD and/or SI and/or who use AT/AAC is to facilitate this vulnerable cohort's full inclusion and participation in all learning experiences (evidenced by improved progress and attainment) so that they become socially skilled, emotionally resilient and active members of their communities.

More about the role

As an ATHI, you will be working as part of PSS (Home and School, 0 to 18 years). You will be a key member of this multi-professional team, delivering a service, centred on the Deaf Curriculum, to children/students with HI (from mild to profound and across the range of ability), their families, and their education settings.

To be considered for short-listing, your application, in the first instance, will need to evidence your recent experience of working as a teacher in an educational setting or as a centrally employed teacher for a local authority. You will also be able to evidence:

  • You are keen to work with children/students with HI or who has experience of working with children/students with HI
  • You enjoy working in and with a team and are open to other people's ideas
