At Kirklees College we are always looking for experienced people looking to further their careers.

Whether in a teaching & learning role or in one of our specialised Business Support functions, you’ll be involved in nurturing and developing the next generation of construction workers, engineers, health workers and countless others.

We’re already a successful college, but we’re continually striving to be better and do better - be part of our story!

In the role of SENDCO you’ll predominantly be based at our Engineering Campus and your focus will be on delivering exceptional SEND support to identified students.

Your key responsibilities will be managing the EHCP process and ensure PfA outcomes are clearly identified, undertaking Quality Audits within your area to ensure a consistent SEND approach. Managing a team of staff. Liaising with external agencies and feeder schools.

Ideally, you’ll have an HE qualification in Dyslexia (or willingness to achieve within 2 year) and demonstrable experience in leading a SEND team within a post 16 setting. It is important that you’re able to communicate effectively, encourage high aspirations, be able to manage change and work with all areas of the college to work towards a whole college SEND approach and demonstrate our College values of Kindness, Unity and Excellence in your role.

Due to the nature of our work, it’s essential you’re committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults.

We believe learning is not just for our students: it’s an important part of working here too. Staff development opportunities include a mentoring scheme, financial contributions for external qualifications and skills development for current and aspiring managers. You’ll also have access to a range of staff benefits including an employee assistance programme, retail and leisure discounts and reduced Metro travel.

We want people who believe in the value of education, and who can contribute to our culture of supporting and challenging one another.
