Specialist School Assistant – British Sign Language (BSL Level 3 required)

15 hours per week, term time only
Grade 6 – £6,930 to £7,844 per annum (this is the pro rata salary)

We are looking for a Specialist School Assistant to provide support to a deaf student whose first language is British Sign Language. For this specialist role you must have BSL level 3 and be confident and proficient in signing in all areas of the curriculum and wider school life. The student is currently in Year 7 and so is also in the transition stage to secondary school. There is flexibility around the working pattern of the 15 hours per week. We already have one Specialist School Assistant (BSL) in post and this vacancy is to cover the remainder of the timetable so that the signing role is shared at a manageable level across the week. It may be possible, for the right candidate, to combine the specialist BSL role of 15 hours with part of a general School Assistant role (Grade 4) to make up a full time post. When applying please indicate if you would like to be considered for this combination of roles, or just the BSL hours.

Applications should be returned by no later than Tuesday 21 November 2017.
