We are seeking to appoint a highly skilled and experienced teacher to our supportive, hardworking and successful Cognition and Learning Team. The team is part of Nottinghamshire County Council’s Schools and Families Specialist Services.

You will use your knowledge, skills and experience to develop and deliver effective strategies/interventions aimed at improving outcomes for children and young people with a wide variety of complex cognition difficulties in Key Stages 2-5. You will work at a variety of levels, using positive and inclusive approaches to provide support and advice to school staff, liaising with parents and engaging in direct teaching, where appropriate. Support from dedicated specialist teaching assistants ensures that a flexibility of approaches can be offered.

You would also be involved in providing support to Nottinghamshire’s Family of school structure through Family SENCos and SENCos and the newly developing District SENCo role, in order to strengthen provision for pupils with SEND in their localities.

We are looking for teachers who are knowledgeable about the National Curriculum, appropriate interventions and the barriers young people with complex cognition needs can face. We welcome applications from highly motivated, creative practitioners, who enjoy working in a collaborative, solution- focussed way. You will part of a very supportive team, working across the County as required.

This is a permanent (part-time) appointment but we would also consider a secondment from a suitably qualified teacher who has prior management approval, or a job share arrangement. The post carries an authorised car user allowance.
