Purpose of the Job:

This is a mandatory qualification and a condition of employment.

  1. To have responsibility for curriculum planning and development, use of resources, assessment, recording and reporting in line with college and departmental policies.
  2. To co-ordinate and deliver an appropriately differentiated curriculum using appropriate teaching methodology for students with a vision impairment. To use a variety of learning styles and assessment for learning and to maintain an effective learning environment within the ethos, rules and disciplinary systems of the College.
  3. To ensure that fully accessible teaching and learning is planned and implemented to secure the academic and social progress of students – ensuring this through the implementation of Whole College Policies.
  4. To assist in the development of appropriate syllabuses, fully accessible resources, schemes of work, marking policies and teaching strategies in the curriculum area.
