You will have experience supporting pupils with complex needs and have the ability to implement a differentiated curriculum - designed to meet the social and emotional needs of learners with complex physical and medical needs. You will have excellent communication skills in order to liaise with a multi-disciplinary team, including occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, medical staff and parents. Pupils may also use alternative communication methods such as PECS or inclusive technology and communication aids, so experience in supporting pupils with speech, language and communication needs is desirable.

Due to the nature of pupil needs, it is also essential that you are able to deliver personal care.
