We are seeking to appoint an outstanding experienced teacher to work as a Lead Professional with our SISS Communication and Learning Difficulties (CLD) Team.

Solihull Specialist Inclusion Support Service (SISS) is a high quality, highly valued local service working closely with Solihull’s maintained schools, academies and settings to support children and young people with a range of Special Educational Needs. 

As Lead Professional you will support the CLD Team Coordinator to lead and manage a highly respected team of advisory teachers and Inclusion Support Practitioners, responsible for providing specialist support, advice and training to schools, settings and parents to ensure the best possible outcomes for children and young people with needs related to cognition and learning and speech, language and communication. You will also take responsibility for the overall management of Solihull’s two primary additional provisions (ARPs) for children with Speech, Language and Communication Disorders.

To be successful in this role, you will be an outstanding practitioner with substantial experience of meeting the needs of children and young people with special educational needs. You will also have relevant experience of working successfully and collaboratively with a range of stakeholders including children, families, schools, other professionals and multidisciplinary teams. You will also have some experience of leadership and management, and excellent communication and time management skills. An additional qualification in an area of SEND would be desirable, but is not essential.

Based at Elmwood Place, Smith’s Wood, Solihull, you will be expected to travel around the borough of Solihull supporting the two ARPs, together with the schools and children on your caseload.

This is a demanding role and you will be joining a group of very committed practitioners. You will find that we are an exceptionally supportive service to work for and working with us is both enjoyable and rewarding.
