Following a review of, and investment in SEND provision within Newcastle City Council an exciting opportunity has arisen for a Hearing Impairment Lead Specialist Teacher.
The SEND Sensory Service is a new service area which brings together our Children and Young People’s Visual Impairment and Hearing Impairment Services. Within the Sensory Service we have a Specialist Lead Teacher for VI and a Specialist Lead Teacher for HI.

The successful postholder will work closely within the new service framework and alongside colleagues from across the whole of SEND to identify opportunities to develop improvements within the services we provide, with a specific focus on children’s, young people and families with Hearing Impairments. You will manage and lead a team of specialist teachers and support staff and support the Sensory Service Manager to oversee the HI Additionally Resourced Bases to ensure we provide an excellent service to the people of our City.

As a qualified teacher of the deaf you will have extensive experience and knowledge of the needs, challenges and opportunities for people with hearing impairments and you will strive to achieve the best possible outcomes for those people using our services.

You will understand the potential impact of a hearing impairment on a child/ young person, from birth to 25 years, and have a clear appreciation of the different approaches to support available to the child and young person, and also to their family.

You will have a collaborative approach to working, recognising the value of working in partnership with colleagues and stakeholders both within and outside the immediate service.

Closing date for applications is 4th May.

We are committed to protecting and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expect all staff to share this commitment. This post is working in regulated activity. If you are successful we will undertake additional recruitment checks which will include a check to see if you have had any criminal convictions, a check of police information and we will check the barred list(s).
