Downs View SEN Specialist School in Brighton is one of the first in the country to advertise externally for the Postgraduate Teacher Degree apprenticeship posts.
The school is offering the four posts in conjunction with the university and with Brighton and Hove City Council’s apprenticeships team. The apprenticeships come with a salary of £17,208 and, in addition the tuition fees are paid-for – saving each apprentice up to £9,000.
The appointments are full-time from June 2019. Applicants must be graduates and must have some experience of working with people who have special educational needs and disabilities.
The closing date for applications is midday next Monday 8 April.
Headteacher Adrian Carver and Deputy Head Teacher Rachel McDonald-Taylor in a joint statement said: “This isn’t just a fantastic offer for people wanting a career in special needs education. It’s also an exciting leap forward for us.
