Yorkshire Special Education Partnership

Leeds Trinity University > Yorkshire Special Education Partnership
​​​​​​​Chellow Heights Special School is the lead school in the Yorkshire Special Education Partnership, working in conjunction with Leeds Trinity University.
​We are a growing partnership of special education schools and specialist provisions working mainly across the Bradford area with a view to expanding into more of West Yorkshire. Our comprehensive programme is tailored to those with a strong desire to teach within special educational needs and disability settings. We are offering non-salaried places in Early Years and Primary. 

Special Educational Needs and Disability are at the heart of our programme providing opportunity to reflect on outstanding practice in both mainstream and SEN provision. Our placements will help you put the knowledge into practice with support. 
Our purpose is to enable learners to be happy, healthy and enjoy life, to develop as fully as possible in self-help, independence, social skills, to be confident, able to make decisions and achieve personal goals.​
Anne Slack, Deputy Head of School

Specialist placements

The Yorkshire Special Education Partnership Schools provide placements in a broad range of special school environments, ranging from generic primary special to more specialised environments for instance High Park which specifically takes children and young people age 3-19 with communication and interaction difficulties.

During the year you will be placed with two partner schools, experiencing three block placements.  At the end of the school year you will have worked with a wide range of children. Your final placement will give you the opportunity to teach 80% of the school day.
