About the role

This post offers an exciting and interesting opportunity for a successful, committed and motivated teacher of SEN within the Autism & Language Team of the Learning and Communication strand of the Brighton & Hove Inclusion Support Service. The post involves working with schools and settings to better support outcomes for children and young people up to 19 years of age.

We are looking for a part-time teacher to work 0.5 FTE as a SEN specialist teacher on a 1-year Fixed Term Contract in our successful Autism & Language team to commence from 1st September 2019.

Brighton & Hove Inclusion Support Service serves our children and young people, their families and settings across the city. The city has good transport links for travel to and from schools. The service is based at County Oak Avenue, Hollingbury which is close to the South Downs National Park.

Ideally we would like to appoint a teacher with recent experience of including children and young people with Autism & Language in schools.

We highly recommend you read the ‘Statement Guidance’ below before you apply for this job. It is important you are able to show how you meet the Person Specification when applying. Not following this guidance is likely to reduce your chances of success.

Additional information

Your starting salary will be pro rata if the above position is part-time or term-time only.

Work Permits: we may be able to obtain a Work Permit for this post but this is subject to meeting the requirements of the UK Border Agency's Points-based Immigration System.

From 6 April 2011 the Home Office has placed a permanent restriction on the number of migrant workers that all Tier 2 (General) Sponsors can recruit. Due to the restrictions we cannot guarantee that individuals that meet the requirements of the Points-based Immigration System will be issued with clearance to obtain work permits.
