We require a motivated, enthusiastic and professional Teacher for children and young people with Visual Impairment to join our hard-working, passionate and supportive local authority team.

Teachers who do not have the mandatory qualification, but who have experience in supporting children and young people with visual impairment and are interested in developing their specialist skills, will be considered. You will have recent teaching experience, either peripatetic or in the classroom and, will be able to demonstrate your commitment to achieving the best possible outcomes for children and young people with special educational needs. As a Teacher of children with visual impairment, excellent interpersonal skills, and the ability to meet deadlines is essential, as is a willingness to learn new skills and maintain an up to date working knowledge of issues related to visual impairment.
