About us

Harrow Council is the 12th largest London Borough and one of the most culturally diverse local authorities in the UK, making it a great place to live, work and visit. Located 10 miles from the city centre and just 13 minutes to Euston from Harrow & Wealdstone station there are great transport links via the Metropolitan Line, Watford DC Line and national rail service. It is easily accessible to the M1, M25 and A406.

About you

You will train teachers, teaching assistants, intervenors etc. and support them in providing an accessible curriculum.

It is essential that you are educated to degree level, hold Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), have the right to work in the UK and have successful teaching experience. Ideally, you will also be a Qualified Teacher for children with hearing Impairment.

However, it is always a challenge to recruit someone with the right qualifications and skills, so we will seriously consider strong qualified teacher applicants without the additional qualification of ‘Teacher for children with hearing Impairment’ providing there is a commitment to complete the postgraduate ‘Mandatory Qualification for Teachers of Children with hearing Impairment’ asap.
