About the role

Sensory Support Team 0-25yrs Cambridgeshire

British Sign Language Tutor- 37hrs per week 52 weeks 0.6FTE (ie 22hrs per week plus holiday entitlement)

This is an amazing new opportunity to help create a role that has never existed in our team before!

For the first time ever, the Sensory Support Team in Cambridgeshire will have a BSL tutor as part of our Team.

If you are a native BSL user, understand Deaf culture and can inspire others with a passion and the skills to use BSL this job could be for you.

What the people in our Team say about their roles:

“The best thing about my job is that I get to work alongside a child or young person and help them learn new skills and become independent. When I am successful, I get to see a child move on and flourish because they no longer need that support and it feels amazing.

“This is my third year working as part of the Sensory Support Team and I can honestly say that no two days are the same – in fact often no two hours are the same! It is a fulfilling, challenging and very rewarding role and the Sensory Support Team are fabulous and incredibly welcoming.”

“I love working here. I walk in and it just makes me smile.”
