Criteria for hiring a SEND Teacher?

    Dear SEND Community,

    I work at an international British curriculum early years, Junior, and Senior school in Africa.
    I have recently been tasked with the responsibility of designing the criteria and entry requirements for a SEN Teacher across the school.

    Kindly help please, what are the criteria for hiring a SEND teacher?

    Thank you

    Well presumably you know the priority learning need( s ) your school needs to address because you have identified that you require a specialist to tackle ? You may want to look at essentials / desirables in terms of the person spec / focus on the experience/ qualifications of the person you are seeking to appoint . Hard to advise given what you have written . A SEND brief can mean different things to different people? How about trawling through some job specs for SEND posts on the net ? This may help you kick start your advert but ultimately only you / setting can draft according to your circumstances?

    Observing them with the children is essential. Some are cut out for and some are not. An outstanding teacher in a nice school may fail completely at SEN

    I think it is wrong / naïve to assume that all students with SEND are challenging or not in a ‘ nice ‘ school !
