The CYP Sensory and Communication Service provides countywide services to children and young people with a sensory impairment or communication need.

You must be registered with the NRCDP.

Although this role is mainly based in 1 setting there must be a willingness to undertake some travel as required according to the learners needs. You will co-work with a BSL Level 6 qualified colleague and provide mentoring and training.
