Learning Support Assistant Vacancy

Job description

Teaching Personnel work closely alongside an autistic provision to recruit an enthusiastic and experienced teaching assistant to join their centre.

Ideally you'll have experience teaching/supporting autistic pupils with a great manner of building relationships with both students and staff.

The students attend the school due to a diagnosis of Autism and many have co-existing conditions including ADHD, sensory processing disorder, learning disabilities, disruptive behaviour disorders, mood disorders, anxiety, tics and Tourette syndrome, epilepsy and learning disabilities.

You must be confident and capable of supporting pupils who have problems with communication, toileting, eating or have sensory difficulties. You must be resilient and have the ability to work proactively with challenging behaviour.

The role is more challenging than mainstream schools, but the class sizes are smaller so you'll really have a great opportunity to make an impact on the children.

You must have experience in supporting children / adults with Autism or have a close personal connection to Autism. Candidates with Team Teach or experience in PECS and / or Makaton are highly sought after.

The centre has been known to appoint candidates who get on particularly well on a long-term basis, which is a real incentive to show off your skill sets!

If interested please contact Chris our specialist SEN consultant on 01792 473 300 or send a copy of your CV through.

I look forward to hearing from you!
