Teacher of Learning Support

academic Full-time Closing date: 5 March 2024

Cranleigh School seeks to appoint, for September 2024, a suitably qualified and enthusiastic Teacher of Learning Support.

Learning Support is a well-established part of the school, where the aim of the department is to support and enable individuals to achieve their full potential. We work in close partnership with students, parents, teachers and, where appropriate, outside agencies.

Learning Support is offered to those who need it throughout the school. Lessons primarily focus on organisational skills and study skills; these are the key areas of support needed for our students with underlying learning difficulties or disabilities.  Exam technique, essay writing and numeracy support may also be a focus. Tailored one-to-one or small group lessons help students develop greater self-awareness and implement strategies to overcome the challenges of an academic curriculum.

The successful applicant will be willing to teach one-to-one, small group and very occasionally class lessons. They should hold a specialist qualification for learners with specific needs and wish to engage fully in the life of this busy school and to contribute to wider aspects of school life.

The School is looking to appoint a highly qualified SEN practitioner who understands the needs of students with a range of underlying learning difficulties and disabilities. You will have experience of teaching literacy, numeracy, and study skills to students with a range of abilities and learning differences and will have a thorough knowledge of a range of appropriate learning strategies.

The successful candidate will have Qualified Teacher Status or NQT, a good honours degree and other SEND specific courses/qualifications.

They will have experience of and the ability to teach and differentiate across a wide spectrum of needs and abilities in the Secondary sector.  This will include teaching literacy, numeracy and study skills to high achieving students with a range of learning differences and will have a thorough knowledge of a range of appropriate learning strategies.

The successful candidate will be expected to get involved in all aspects of this busy boarding school (which would normally include one evening duty per week), including acting as a tutor to a group of students within a Boarding House.

All teachers are expected to contribute to the School’s co-curricular programme and co-curricular activities alongside their academic responsibilities.

Please read ‘Join Our Team’ and the ‘Recruitment pack’ to be found on our website which gives an impression of the ethos to which it is expected that the successful candidate will contribute.
