We are looking for someone who either has previous experience of supporting children with autism or has relevant teaching assistant experience.
The suitable candidate will be responsible for working alongside the class teacher to adapt work and provide tailored support across the curriculum.
The job will be primarily to support the child’s academic needs and social skills. Their curriculum is significantly adapted to meet their needs and life skills are an important part of the weekly timetable including activities such as cooking.
