Purpose of the Job:

Technology is life changing for young people with sight loss and we need to appoint someone with the expertise and passion for inclusive education that our students rightly deserve.

In addition to professional duties set out in the Teachers’ Pay and Conditions the post holder will:

    • Plan and deliver engaging and challenging lessons using a multisensory approach suitable for students with a vision impairment.
    • Ensure that learning and resources are fully accessible for students with a vision impairment.
    • Work collaboratively with colleagues to implement strategies identified in students’ EHCPs.
    • Aim to keep abreast of developments in access technology.
    • Contribute to whole College CPD in the sharing of good practice relating specifically to access technology.
    • Take on the role of Form Tutor, overseeing the academic progress and pastoral support of tutees; communicating regularly with parents and care staff; overseeing and monitoring targets identified in the Annual Review and participating in the annual review.
    • Actively implement and promote the College’s inclusion policies to ensure equality of opportunity for every student in order that they achieve their full potential.
    • Participate in meetings with colleagues, parents and external agencies where required.

Annual review:

This job description will be reviewed annually and may be subject to amendment or modification at any time after consultation with the post holder.  It is not a comprehensive statement of procedures and tasks but sets out the main expectations of NCW in relation to the post holder’s professional responsibilities and duties.
