The Berkshire Sensory Consortium Service (BSCS) currently have two vacancies for qualified Teachers of the Deaf (QTOD) to work in a peripatetic role with schools, early years settings and families (0-25) to build their capacity to meet the needs of learners who have a hearing loss through our Advisory and Teaching programmes.

We are looking to appoint two enthusiastic, motivated professionals who are committed to working in partnership with all of our stakeholders and who seek to improve the outcomes for all of our young people. The role as a Teacher of the Deaf requires excellent interpersonal skills, flexibility and the ability to work independently as well as contributing to the wider team within the Service. The ability to be well organised and to deadlines is essential.

We will consider suitably experienced teachers without the mandatory qualification who are interested in developing their specialist skills to work with pupils who are deaf. The successful candidates will be outstanding practitioners who have recent classroom teaching experience and are willing to undertake the two year specialist postgraduate qualification to train as a Teacher of the Deaf. The Service provides a mentorship programme for all new members of staff.

Due to the nature of this role you must be able to travel independently to meet the requirements of the post. A mileage allowance is available. A full driving licence and access to a vehicle is desirable. Teachers within the Service may work across more than one of the Berkshire Local Authorities.

Part time may be considered for a Qualified Teacher of the Deaf.
