The college is seeking an outstanding, committed and efficient member of non-teaching staff to assist the Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinator (SENDCo). The post holder will take a lead role within the college to identify and address the needs of students who require particular help to overcome barriers to learning. The post offers a unique opportunity for an ambitious, creative and enthusiastic individual to assist with the management of the SEND Department within the context of the whole college vision.

The post holder will support the SENDCo in the role defined in the SEND Code of Practice, School Teachers Condition of Service Document and College policy documents and the JCQ Access Arrangements and Reasonable Adjustments Guidance Document.

In accordance with the Joint Council of Qualifications (JCQ) guidelines, the post holder will be required to:
• Hold a recognised teaching qualification (QTS)
