Full-Time Autism Spectrum Disorder Teaching Assistant

Job description

Are you a teaching assistant, capable of working with pupils with ASD and complex needs? Or, are you a strong teaching assistant seeking a new challenge in a Primary School?

An over-subscribed Primary Academy in Croydon, which caters for both mainstream pupils and pupils with ASD and complex needs, requires a strong and enthusiastic teaching assistant for a long-term role in January 2019.

Class sizes are very small, and excellent support will be in place to assist the teacher within the classroom. However, this role will entail working with pupils with ASD and complex needs within their Enhanced Learning Provision (ELP), so previous experience of working with pupils in a similar setting is undoubtedly advantageous.

Our client School has an Enhanced Learning Provision (ELP) for children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). There are 35 pupils within the ELP, which covers the full primary age range and these are allocated in partnership with Croydon's Special Educational Needs (SEN) Team.

Ideally, you will:

* Be able to commit to a full-time role (5 days per week).
* Have previous experience working with children with different educational
needs.
* Strong interpersonal and communication skills.
* Familiarity with instructional approaches required to facilitate complete access
to the curriculum for pupils with ASD and other complex needs.

If this role is of interest to you, or you are just generally seeking new opportunities within a SEND setting, please feel free to contact Rob at Teaching Personnel's Wimbledon Primary branch on 0208 944 1088 for further information.

All applicants will require the appropriate qualification and training for this role. For teacher roles, we require a formally recognised teaching qualification. For Support staff our minimum requirement is GCSE English & Maths (A-C) or equivalent.

All pay rates quoted will be inclusive of 12.07% statutory holiday pay.

Teaching Personnel is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. All candidates must undertake or have undertaken a valid enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. Full assistance provided.
