Finding the right SEN Jobs for you

From Half a Day to a New Career

Protocol Education specialist SEND teams, and consultants will help you navigate the vast range of work options within special needs and find the amount and type of work you need. While it can feel challenging to start with, you will soon be ready to take on any special needs teaching job that comes your way.

Short-Term and Daily Supply Work in Special Needs

While some special needs schools will avoid short-term cover, many contact Protocol Education to help them find cover for daily and short-term cover. This can be a great route "in" to a school or a particular area of special needs for a teacher. Flexibility, listening and learning quickly is a great advantage for an aspiring special needs teacher.

Daily supply work is a great option if you want flexibility or need to combine work with other responsibilities and interests. Typically, we look for people available at least three days a week, but you can manage your availability and take the work that suits your lifestyle.

Long-Term and Permanent Jobs

The demand for experienced special needs teachers across the range of special needs schools is high. Gaining experience in daily cover will put you in a great position to take on longer-term and permanent roles as they become available. Protocol Education's specialist SEND consultants will help you make the most of your experience, help you prepare your CV and put you forward for career-enhancing jobs. ‚Äč
