We are proud to be a leading provider of specialist learning and education services for children and young people with a Visual Impairment. By managing a peripatetic and evolving caseload of pupils, this role will be key to ensuring we can provide these specialist services to a wider reach of children by supporting schools to teach learners with a Visual Impairment.


If this sounds like a role you could excel in, we would love to hear from you, experience of working with children who have a Visual Impairment and/or additional support needs is essential along with holding a QTVI qualification. The ability to travel to schools within different Local Authorities is also an essential requirement of this role.
