Learning Support - Deputy SENCo
Canford has it's own salary scale
This is an opportunity for a well-qualified learning support teacher (ideally level 7) with experience of teaching small groups and one-to-one across the age range.
The expertise to assist in the leadership and management of Support for Learning across the school is key. With a focus on professional development and opportunities for career progression, Canford also offers an excellent benefits package.
Canford supports learning through a whole-school approach, providing excellent support for all our pupils and enabling them to reach their maximum potential. The SFL department provides specialist programmes for pupils with identified learning differences who may require additional support. Our aim is for pupils to develop the skills they need to think and learn independently. We enable our pupils to develop strategies, gain confidence in their own learning and acquire the study skills that will help them to succeed at Canford and beyond.
The Deputy SENCo will be expected to work closely with the SENCo/Head of Support for Learning and to take an active interest in the wider aspects of teaching and learning within the school, helping to remove barriers to learning.
