About the role

“The best thing about my job is that I get to work alongside a child or young person and help them learn new skills and become independent. When I am successful, I get to see a child move on and flourish because they no longer need that support and it feels amazing.

“This is my third year working as part of the Sensory Support Team and I can honestly say that no two days are the same – in fact often no two hours are the same! It is a fulfilling, challenging and very rewarding role and the Sensory Support Team are fabulous and incredibly welcoming.”

“I love working here. I walk in and it just makes me smile.”

Can you inspire? Can you be a driving force for positive change? Would you like to learn British Sign Language?

If you believe you can make a positive difference to the lives of children and young people who are Deaf, and their families, apply for this vacancy.

We are looking for enthusiastic, energetic and inspiring people to join our team. You will need to be prepared to learn new skills, working both independently and with colleagues in the Sensory Support Team, as well as mainstream school staff.

Your new role will include:

  • Delivering training to schools
  • Working closely with Deaf children/young people
  • Supporting the Teacher of the Deaf
  • Learning & supporting BSL delivery
  • Supporting bespoke interventions
  • Developing a skillset that allows you to test Deaf specific technology
  • Being part of a team that is continually developing new strategies to better the outcomes for children/young people who are Deaf


If you feel passionate about the possibilities this role can offer, and the opportunities to learn new skills, then we want to hear from you. For an informal discussion or to find out more, please contact Sibel Djemal on 07880 053496 or

As part of the interview process you will be asked to deliver an 8-minute presentation on a topic of your choice. The topic can be light-hearted or serious, we will be looking at how coherently you can present your viewpoint and engage an audience.
