The Berkshire Sensory Consortium Service (BSCS) currently have a vacancy for a qualified Teacher of the Vision Impaired (QTVI) to work in a peripatetic role with schools, early years settings and families (0–25) to build their capacity to meet the needs of learners who have a vision loss through our Advisory and Teaching programmes.

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, motivated professional who is committed to working in partnership with all of our stakeholders and who seeks to improve the outcomes for all of our young people. The role as a Teacher of the Vision Impaired requires excellent interpersonal skills, flexibility and the ability to work independently as well as contributing to the wider team within the Service. The ability to be well organised and to meet deadlines is essential.

We will consider suitably experienced teachers without the mandatory qualification who are interested in developing their specialist skills to work with pupils who are vision impaired. The successful candidate will be an outstanding practitioner who has recent classroom teaching experience and is willing to undertake the two year specialist postgraduate qualification to train as a Teacher of the Vision Impaired. The Service provides a mentorship programme for all new members of staff.

Due to the nature of this role you must be able to travel independently to meet the requirements of the post. A mileage allowance is available from your office base. A full driving licence and access to a vehicle is desirable.

Teachers within the Service may work across more than one of the Berkshire Local Authorities.
