Special Education Needs (SEN) Jobs

If you aspire to help students with complex needs to achieve their potential, then a career as a special education needs teacher would suit you. This position requires someone who is entirely dedicated and committed to working with young students and people who need extra support or require an advanced program of learning to reach their full educational potential.

As a special education needs provider, you will be assigned to work with students who have physical disabilities, sensory impairments, speech and language difficulties, learning difficulties or even a combination of these difficulties. Due to the delicate nature of this position, you will be required to show evidence of some personal desired attributes, such as; patience, understanding, and empathy in working with students. You must also show a sensitive and responsive approach towards your role with the students, an ability to maintain and manage a confrontation and challenging behaviour and a positive, enthusiastic and an energetic attitude should be maintained at all times.

An unflinching ability to respond to the needs of students and adapt or change plans accordingly will also be desired. You should also be able to maintain a good and cordial working relationship with students, parents, and staff of the institution. An ability to understand the importance of confidentiality about the student's personal information is also a desirable trait for this position, as well as excellent organisational and time-management skills.

In addition to these preferred attributes, there are fundamental educational qualifications which you must meet. These qualifications will include:

  • A degree in any relevant field from a recognised institution.
  • A postgraduate certification in education will be advantageous.
  • Specialist interest in special educational needs will be an edge but not compulsorily required.
  • A basic understanding of English language.
  • Proficient in IT skills including Microsoft office suite.
  • A minimum of 2-3 years’ experience working in special educational needs provision in an educational institution.
  • It is essential to bear in mind that preference will be given to candidates who meet these qualifications as they are not always discretionary.

  • Develop and modify conventional teaching methods to meet the individual needs of students.
  • Prepare lessons and resources to be used in teaching the students.
  • Mark and assess the work of students
  • Liaise with other professionals such as social workers, speech and language therapists, physiotherapists and educational psychologists for the benefit of the students.
  • Assist in severely disabled students personal care/medical needs.
  • Use specialist skills such as teaching Braille to students with visual impairments or using sign language and lip reading to teach students who have hearing impairments.
  • Assess students who have long or short-term learning difficulties.

  • Organise seminars, lectures or workshops to promote awareness and increase the acceptance of students with special needs in the institution.
  • Plan and organise special activities for students with special needs in the institution.
  • Adhere to institution regulations and policies regarding such students.
  • Perform other related duties as will be required for this position.
