For this position you will need to be an experienced Special Needs Teaching Assistant who has worked with pupils who either have Severe Learning Difficulties or who are on the autistic spectrum.
You will mainly be working with pupils across EYFS/ KS1 and KS2 who all have a diagnosis of autism and have significant delay in their academic and social ability. Many of these students have limited communication skills and as a result experience working with students who have speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) would be advantageous.
You will be working in small classes alongside another experienced SEN TA and a specialist SEN Teacher. The children are lovely, very well behaved and enjoy school however you will need to be able to work under your own initiative, have emotional intelligence, be mindful of your tone of voice/choice of words and body language, have good concentration levels, the ability to multitask and bring energy and enthusiasm to the job.
The ideal candidate will have good ASD knowledge and some experience of PECS and Makaton but the key to the job is attitude and the school are very willing to train someone who shows passion and a willingness to get stuck in!
To apply for this position please do not delay in contacting Bonnie from REESON on 0203 841 0777 ASAP! Paid Trial days are taking place imminently.
