Job description

Teaching assistant, SEN school near Erith, full time and immediate start

I am currently working with a large SEN school that caters for students with moderate to severe autism. Both primary and secondary students come to school here and the current vacancy is in key stage 3.

I am looking for a teaching assistant with knowledge of the national curriculum, as many students are able to access the national curriculum levels. You must have good levels of numeracy and literacy and be confident in using ICT.

You must have experience of supporting children with autism. Some students are verbal but some are non-verbal and use either PECs or Makaton for communication. Training for either of these is highly desirable although it is easy to learn on the job.
