An exciting opportunity for a top class SEND teacher to join our team as the Academy’s SENDCo


We are seeking to appoint an experienced and qualified, highly motivated and hard-working professional to become the Academy’s SENDCo. You will have responsibility for leading and managing the SEND and Inclusion departments and their staff. As part of this professional and dedicated team you will be instrumental in inspiring and motivating our students.

A detailed knowledge of the SEN Code of Practice and proficiency in delivering a range of programmes and interventions which can enhance learning is essential.

You will need to be a good communicator with good interpersonal skills and attention to detail who is committed to ensuring students’ well-being and achievement.

The successful candidate will have a proven track record in raising the achievement and attainment of pupils. The ability to measure the impact of student interventions using a range of data and statistical information is essential.

Interested candidates are encouraged to visit the school before making an application.

Working at GCA

The successful candidate will be joining a tight-knit community; the turnover at GCA is consistently low and the well-being of our staff is important to us. We aim to support staff to achieve a sensible work-life balance.

Staff at the Academy collaborate and support each other by sharing good practice and taking a team approach with a focus on collective responsibility. Paul Sutton, our Principal, encourages teachers to have an impact beyond their subject and he is always available and happy to discuss with you ideas as to how this can be achieved. We have an impressive range of extra-curricular activities and most of our staff are involved in running at least one.

The personal development of all our staff is highly valued at GCA and we offer the opportunity to apply for our Learning Award of up to £2,400 per year for your continued professional development or other skills and talents. This is in addition to the school’s ongoing CPD programme. Other benefits staff can opt into include a cycle to work scheme and an interest-free annual season ticket loan.
