Who We Are
We make it easier for people with disabilities to live, learn and be part of a world adapting to difference. We do this through:
We are an ambitious, entrepreneurial and innovative charitable business working in a person centred way to meet the needs of people with disabilities and their families. We provide a range of high quality and seek out opportunities to inspire and support people with disabilities to achieve their ambitions. We believe that working together as one Foundation we achieve more than individual services would achieve alone. Our influence will be regional, national & international.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. Applicants should be aware that the post will only be offered to successful candidates subject to an Enhanced DBS check as well as other employment clearances.
The Percy Hedley Foundation provides services for a range of young people and adults with physical disabilities and other associated difficulties. In our schools specialist teachers, therapists and special support assistants provide an integrated approach to working with children who have difficulties including sensory impairment, ASD and associated behavioural difficulties, and profound and multiple learning difficulties.
We are looking for an inspiring Qualified Teacher of the Deaf who can support our special children and young people, aged from 4 to 19 years to reach their full potential. It is essential that candidates have the mandatory Teacher of the Deaf qualification or are willing to enrol on the qualification when starting. Applicants should be interested or experienced in working within a fully integrated approach involving a range of specialist staff. The successful candidates will receive extensive support and continued professional development opportunities.
Northern Counties School is a vibrant and expanding service which offers a supportive and dynamic working environment. The school is based in Jesmond, Newcastle and informal visits are welcomed and encouraged.
