A large special needs (SEN) school based in Lewisham is seeking a SEN Teacher (ASD) with some recent UK experience to join their team from immediately. Ideally the successful applicant will have a proven track record working in an SEN environment but the Headteacher will consider a primary trained teacher with a passion for SEN, a proven track record as a teacher and a can do attitude.
The successful applicant for this SEN Teacher (ASD) will be teaching a mixed KS2 class (6 pupils) with Autism and Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD.) The majority of children have speech and communication difficulties also. The class consists of 6 pupils who are all working at P levels, as a result experience of the EYFS curriculum would be advantageous, though not essential. Much of the work you would be doing will be based loosely on the Early Years curriculum with a particular focus on developing social and communication skills. You will be working alongside two really friendly learning support assistants (LSAs) who know the children and the school procedures and will help you get up to speed quickly. Some experience of PECS and Makaton would be advantageous but training is available
The successful candidate will be flexible, with the ability to use their own initiative where required. Experience working in an SEN school or with ASD children would be an advantage but the school are clear that they want a good teacher first and foremost - excellent training is available. They would be more than happy to support an excellent practitioner with passion for SEN but limited SEN experience.
Please apply below to be considered for this ASD Teaching position in Lewisham. Trial days are to be held ASAP.
