About the Role
This is an exciting opportunity to be part of the Sensory and Physical SEN Team working as a Qualified Teacher for Children and Young People with Vision Impairment (QTVI).

We are looking for a skilled and experienced QTVI who is familiar with working in a diverse multi-cultural environment. The ideal candidate would have experience of work across a diverse age range, including young babies and pre-school children. You may have a wider knowledge of special educational needs and will show a commitment to supporting successful inclusion. You will also appreciate the importance of teamwork, professionalism and confidentiality within a peripatetic service and be able to show evidence of supporting colleagues.

For candidates who do not hold the QTVI mandatory qualification Hounslow LA are prepared to fund a candidate who has extensive and current experience teaching children and young people with a vision impairment preferable across the age range 0-19.

This is an advisory peripatetic role. You will be expected to work in a variety of different locations across the borough. A travel allowance or essential car user allowance is attached to this post.

About the Team You’ll Be Working In
Hounslow's Sensory and Physical SEN Team is well-established and respected, providing an advisory service which includes a Deaf and Hearing Support Team, Vision Impairment Team, and a Physical Disability/ Complex Medical Team. The team supports preschool, schools and educational settings for the children and young people of Hounslow.

The post involves working within a multi-disciplinary service supporting the effective inclusion of children & young people in mainstream and special school/settings from birth to 19; as well as working with children, young people, and their families.

A key focus of the team is promoting inclusion, empowerment, progress and raising of attainment for the vision impaired children and young people of Hounslow ensuring they are prepared for adulthood and success.

You will report to the lead for the Sensory and Physical SEN Team who is also a qualified teacher of the deaf.

About You
You will be a QTVI with extensive experience and confidence in promoting the inclusion of vision impaired children and young people in schools/colleges (including special), pre-school settings and homes by offering strategies to facilitate the learning of children with a vision impairment in the classroom and by making recommendations on the use of appropriate resources and technology.

You will have excellent interpersonal skills, flexibility, the ability to work independently and the ability to contribute to the wider Sensory and Physical SEN Team.

You will provide practical support and advice to the parents and carers of pre-schoolers, children and young people with vision impairment helping them to understand the nature of their child’s visual impairment and how to support all aspects of their child’s development and learning, at home and in the community.

You will enjoy building relationships with schools, families and children and young people, working in partnership with them seeking to improve outcomes for all our young people with vision impairment.
We will consider suitably experienced teachers without the mandatory qualification who have extensive and current experience supporting children and young people with a vision impairment preferably across the 0-19 age range and have a special interest in developing their skills in this field and willing to undertake the mandatory training in this field.

Enhanced DBS check is required.
