SEN Recruitment Agency | Qualified Teacher of the Deaf Jobs London | BSL Teaching Assistant Jobs London
Hearing impairment refers to conditions in which individuals are fully or partially unable to detect or perceive at least some frequencies which can typically be heard by others. Any degree of deafness may cause significant educational and social problems. Children who are born severely or profoundly deaf need skilled teaching to develop language and communication skills (including speech and sign language as appropriate). Many children whose deafness is less severe also need special support.
Teaching deaf children offers a wide range of work opportunities in a number of different types of educational setting. It is challenging and stimulating work that invites initiative and gives teachers the chance to develop innovative patterns of classroom practice. We are continually looking for professionals to fill out qualified teacher of the deaf jobs and BSL teaching assistant jobs at schools and resource bases across London, please check out our current vacancies
Most deaf children attend mainstream schools. Some of these schools have resource bases (or units) led by qualified Teachers of the Deaf. A smaller number of children are taught in special schools some of which offer residential provision. It is a requirement that pupils in these schools and resource bases are taught by appropriately qualified Teachers of the Deaf and that they obtain this qualification within three years of beginning their work with deaf children and young people.
One-year full-time and two-year part-time courses are offered for people who want to train as Teachers of the Deaf. Teachers who successfully complete a course are currently recognised by the Department for Education and Skills (DfES) as qualified Teachers of the Deaf.
We are always looking for teachers and support staff with British Sign Language (BSL) qualifications for short and long term posts across London and the South East; if you can communicate using BSL, please register with us and we will keep you informed.
