Thank you for your interest in the post of SEND T.A at our school. We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, highly motivated, dedicated and supportive person to join our friendly team, working 1:1 with a Visually Impaired child on a fixed term contract, for the duration of the students’ time at Somerlea Park Junior School.

The right candidate will work alongside the class teacher and other agency professionals in a specialist role which will include converting lessons to Braille or other formats to assist and support the student to access the curriculum and progress their learning. The role requires patience. You must be passionate about improving outcomes and life-chances for the student you will be responsible for.

The post will start in September 2020 when the student joins us in Year 5. If the student moves out of the area or leaves the school before the end of Year 6, we will ensure you are provided and supported with a 30-day notice period.

This is a fantastic opportunity for the right person. In return we can offer high quality continuing professional development, and specialist training.

Due to the current climate that we find ourselves in, there will not be any visits to the school. I would encourage you to take a look at our web page on the Learners’ Trust Portal using the web address: https://www.learnerstrust.org/spj
