This is an exciting opportunity to support a bright and enthusiastic young student, using BSL or sign supported English, to act as an interpreter within a small class with a team of student support assistants.

The successful applicant will have Level 2 BSL and will support a “total communication” approach with the support of the speech and language team and be expected to complete the Children and Young People’s Workforce Diploma at Level 3 (if not already achieved).

Experience of complex physical and medical needs is desirable, however an aspiration to enable students to learn and achieve meaningful independence is essential.
