Interviews to take place 8 February 2019 

In collaboration with Nottingham City LA, we are developing a purpose-built provision for 48 pupils with a diagnosis of ASD.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a team developing this new provision. 

Initially a group of KS1 pupils will be taught in existing accommodation. A new build will be in place for September 2020 as the numbers increase. 

Nethergate Academy is a special academy in the City of Nottingham for 120 pupils with moderate and complex learning difficulties. The age range is from 5-19 years with a range of ability extending from P6 – L6. Many pupils have autism and some have SEMH needs. 

We are seeking to appoint an experienced and committed teacher with a passion for teaching children with SEND. No additional qualifications in SEND are required, but experience in teaching children with ASD whether in a special or a mainstream setting is essential. 

The successful applicant will have a firm but nurturing approach, a relentless focus on pupil progress and high expectations of pupil learning and behaviour. They will also have a creative and innovative approach to engaging pupils and overcoming barriers to learning. 

This new post would suit a primary practitioner with a record of good and outstanding teaching. Experience and passion for working with pupils who have social, emotional and mental health needs as well as those with significant learning needs is essential. Additional training in approaches to teaching will be provided for the successful applicant e.g. physical intervention. Applicants must be committed to their own professional development and be willing to engage in training opportunities. 

You will be required to help with the organising and running of groups in the new ASD provision. This is a fantastic opportunity for someone wanting to help develop this new provision. 

Your application should demonstrate your commitment, knowledge and passion for working with children with SEND along with a willingness and enthusiasm to contribute further to the wider life and ethos of the school. The successful applicant will be required to teach maths, English and a range of other subjects. Please include your curriculum strengths and interests in your application.
