Teachers Pay Scale + SEN allowance ( £2085) + TLR2a (£2640)
The Sensory Team is comprised of Qualified Teachers of the Deaf, Qualified Teachers of Visually Impaired pupils, Specialist Teaching Assistants and a Habilitation Officer.
We are looking to appoint a full time, qualified ToVI who has experience of working with pupils/young children or students with visual impairments. We would also consider a candidate who wished to work part time if they possessed the mandatory qualification. There may be training available for a suitably experienced candidate who does not have the mandatory qualification and payment of TLR and SEN allowances will reflect this. The training will be on the distance learning programme offered by Birmingham University.
The successful candidate will have a base in Nottingham at the Home Brewery Building but will be required to work across the county and will work with families, individuals and schools to effectively support the inclusion of pupils with a visual impairment.
You will be expected to be very flexible and will need to be highly motivated and have a good understanding of the school curriculum at all phases. You should have a positive approach to inclusion and have a clear understanding of the strategies used to develop inclusive practice in schools and settings for pupils with a visual impairment.
Knowledge of Braille, specialist technology and software to support pupils with a visual impairment is required.
This is a permanent post.
