    I am a social worker with lots of ideas and experience in inclusion. i am active at the school and can give you step by step advise and support. you are needed in design&technology, art, music, film, 2 hours one-on-one literacy and maths and an hour library. any ideas from your side to develop the inclusion further is more than welcome.

    the next school term are: 18 April - 23 June and 24 July - 22 September 2017. we can discuss staying for more than the term (visas usually run 3 months) but it is important that you stay for at least the whole term.
