TEACHER OF COMPUTER SCIENCE AND ICT
Ref: AC210/0621
Salary: MSP + SEN (min) or SEN (max) for QTVI

We are keen to recruit the right candidate to work at NCW and are willing to consider applications for either a full time or part time appointment – 0.6 FTE and above.

Are you the inspirational teacher we are looking for?  Someone who would enjoy the challenge of developing new skills in a friendly and rewarding setting?  If so then we encourage you to find out more about this interesting and exciting role.  Technology is life changing for young people with sight loss and we are expanding our staffing in this invaluable area of the curriculum.  We are keen to appoint someone with the teaching expertise and passion for inclusive education that our students rightly deserve.  Experience of teaching students with a vision impairment is not a requirement of the post as the College is primarily interested in appointing a talented and committed teacher who will train to become a qualified teacher of the vision impaired (QTVI) and be pro-active in learning how children and young people with a vision impairment use technology.  The salary increases to the maximum SEN allowance once qualified as a teacher of the Vision Impaired (QTVI).

NCW is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young adults and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  This post is conditional on two verified references, a medical questionnaire and an enhanced DBS check and Registration.  Candidates must complete an NCW application form, CVs alone are not accepted.  All positions at NCW are also subject to a six-month probationary period.  NCW is an Equal Opportunities employer.

We encourage any interested applicants to contact us for an informal chat or to arrange a visit.
