Special education teachers

Special education teachers

Disabled children in many countries face discrimination. They’re excluded from family and community life. Inclusive education can change that, by transforming attitudes and supporting disabled people in exercising their rights.

Roles are generally longer term, ranging from one to two years, but we also have occasional short-term assignments for up to six months.

You’ll be a qualified teacher with at least two years’ experience of working with children who have special education needs (five years for short-term roles). In some placements it would be helpful to know Braille or sign language.

What you’ll be doing

You’ll be advising teachers in mainstream schools on how to identify, assess and include children with special needs. You’ll also train teachers in producing effective teaching materials. You could work in countries such as Ethiopia, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda.
