Teacher of the Deaf - Wandsworth Hospital and Home Tuition Service (HHTS) Medical PRU
Hours: Full or part time considered
The Wandsworth Hospital and Home Tuition Service (HHTS) has an exciting opportunity for a Teacher of the Deaf to join our creative, supportive and enthusiastic team! A teacher who does not yet hold the mandatory qualification in Deaf Education, but had suitable skills and was willing to train within three years, would also be considered.
A minimum of BSL Level 2 (or equivalent native use) is required, with higher levels of BSL being desirable. The successful candidate will receive training to support them in the role and to further develop their professional expertise.
The Teacher of the Deaf will primarily work within Corner House, the highly specialist inpatient provision for Deaf children and young people, alongside our other Teachers of the Deaf and specialist HLTAs. Corner House is a National CAMHS Deaf Inpatient Unit for children and young people aged 5-18, who are experiencing a mental health crisis which requires inpatient admission in a multi-disciplinary therapeutic environment.
The teacher will be required to organise, deliver and evaluate learning for children with complex needs; setting suitable targets and liaising with home schools. They will work in partnership with the multidisciplinary team and must be willing to work flexibly in a challenging yet rewarding environment.
